“The first draft of Feluda always went to my mother who checked and edited if something seemed out of place. Then it came to me and I used to read them. Often my friends used to beg me to tell what the next story was but I kept quiet” said Sandip Ray.

Speaking about the fact that Feluda is still so popular among the Bengalis even today the director said “It is the Bangaliana which has left an impression in the minds and hearts of the audience. Also the fact that you get to know so much by reading the books is also another interesting fact which has hooked many readers even today. Sonar Kella, a popular Feluda story has served as a tour guide for many people who went on a vacation to Rajasthan. Therein is the appeal of Feluda even today”.

Sujoy Prosad Chatterjee who first became acquainted with Feluda when his father took him to watch Sonar Kella said “He was the first Bengali sleuth that I knew. I was so mesmerized after watching the film that when I began reading the books I found them so appealing. Young people do not read books now. Even if they do, those are not Bengali books. But after watching the film, if two people read the books, then it will indeed be an achievement for today’s generation”.

Speaking at the occasion, Dev said “We all had a great time shooting the film. One will have to see the film to see that though I and Nusrat may be the lead pair of the film but Kanchan da and Rudranil steals the show. What acting!! The train is actually the super hero of the film. You will understand why I am saying this once you watch the film”.

Director Rajib said “This is a story of a single day. Hence it is fast paced, adventurous and extremely entertaining. We have shot in actual locations and that was often a problem as Nusrat and Dev have huge fan following and people used to crowd the places to catch a glimpse of their favorite stars. However we managed to do the shooting despite all odds”.

The film is slated for release on 9th September.
