Kaushik Ghatak to direct Samrat And Co for Rajshri Productions

MUMBAI: Rajshri Productions? Kavita Barjatya is all set to produce Hindi cinema?s first detective saga filled with suspense and adventure. Titled Samrat And Co, the movie will be directed by Kaushik Ghatak.

What?s more, the movie may also see Rajshri Productions branching off a new wing under which the movie will be produced. Rajshri is looking at making Samrat And Co a dedicated detective franchisee in Bollywood.

Specially targeting India?s young audiences, Barjatya has embarked on bringing to Bollywood, the first of its kind detective franchisee, wherein the very nuances of crime solving, human nature and the world of standalone private investigators will be presented on the big screen.

Barjatya said, "Today is a wonderful time for cinema... People are ready to accept different stories, different genres, different characters and a different treatment. Today we can tell the story which we wish too and not be caught up in boundaries of formulas? We have also seen that the uniqueness of the concept is the driving force in today?s films. When Kaushikji narrated me a couple of subjects, this one really excited me. I have known and worked with Kaushik ji since 2004. He has directed most of my TV shows and they were all landmarks. Hope to create the magic on big screen now. It?s going to be a challenge to cater to the typical Rajshri?s family audiences as well as today?s youth".

Ghatak added, "Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Feluda, Byomkesh Bokshi, etc were my best friends since childhood, of course through their books? I have grown up with this genre. Their adventures always fascinated me? For a very long time I wanted to create a detective in our very own Bollywood cinema?but in our own style which is apt for our entertainment - loving hindi movie goers. Thanks to Kavitaji, with whom I have shared a long and wonderful working relationship, for understanding this new kind of cinema and making it happen".
