Speaking at the occasion Sabyasachi Chakraborty said “When I was first cast as Feluda many years ago, I had actually asked Satyajit Ray to give me the role. He said that he will not be making the film and asked me to contact Sandip Ray. I contacted him and after an audition I was selected. And to return as Feluda has been a great feeling. I did not want to do the Feluda film released last year. And now I have two stories in one film. How lucky I am!!”

Topse will be played this time by Saheb Bhattacharya. “The director has always given the actors liberty to improvise. When I was first cast as Topse, I was afraid to improvise and hence I may have looked a bit composed and stiff. But with time I have understood the character and now I gel well with the role” added the actor with a big smile.

Shirsha Ray is the DOP, Ananda Adhya is the art director, Subrata Ray is the editor and Anup Mukhopadhyay is behind the sound designing.

Sandip Ray also showcased the notebook in which Satyajit Ray used to write down the Feluda stories. “I will tell you all something. My father was fond of science fiction and detective fiction. He actually wrote the first Feluda story casually. It was only when it became so important and popular that he began to write the other stories” added the director.
