Sujoy Ghosh to make Aranyer Din Ratri in Hindi

MUMBAI: Director Sujoy Ghosh has firmed up plans to make a Hindi film on Sunil Gangopadhyay‘s Bengali novel Aranyer Din Ratri (Days and Nights in the Forest).

The novel was first adapted on a film by the same name by Satayajit Ray in 1970.

Aranyer Din Ratri revolves around four friends who take off to a forested tribal land in Bihar to escape the daily, monotonous grind and return to the city after three days a little wiser having rediscovered life and finding some startling answers to what they were seeking.

The film is expected to roll next year with Ghosh currently working on the script. Avers Ghosh, "Knowing very well that Satyajit Ray had made a masterpiece, I will have to see how close I can go of him in terms of storytelling. My only worry is I shouldn‘t go wrong and if I do so, I will have to face the wrath of Bengalis allover."

Meanwhile, the post-production work of his Kahaani is going on in full speed with it slated to release on 9 March. Kahaani, starring Vidya Balan, is the tale of Vidya, who arrives from London in search of her missing husband Arnab Bagchi. Seven months pregnant and alone in a festive city, with nothing to rely upon except fragments from her memories about him, Vidya is determined to unravel the truth about her missing husband.

Meanwhile in the days when films are being adapted from novels, a novel is to be written inspired by Kahaani. Advaita Kala, who has penned the script of the film, plans to write a novel on the same story line, but with a twist. The book might be launched towards the end of 2012.
