The Kahaani director clears the air about his next film
There have been reports about Sujoy Ghosh working on the remake of the cinematic adaptation of Satyajit Ray’s Aranyer Din Ratri (Days and Nights in the Forest). Though Ghosh admits on planning to make a remake of the film, he says that he has given up on the idea ‘coz the thoughts and views expressed in the film were typical to ‘70s, which won’t be accepted now. Sujoy said to a popular tabloid, “It wouldn’t make sense to make a period drama since we already have Ray’s classics.”
So that explains Sujoy’s next with Vidya Balan isn’t a remake. However, there were reports that Vidya’s character has been inspired by Durga Shakti Nagpal, the civil servant who reacted against corruption, which led to her suspension and later reinstatement by the UP government. To these reports, Ghosh reacts, “Utterly, absolutely rubbish, it’s a brand new script.”
Sujoy Ghosh also confirms that the film is a thriller with Vidya Balan and Irrfan Khan in the lead and that it’s not a sequel to Kahaani. He says, “A sequel to Kahaani would be an exciting proposition but Kahaani 2, Kahaani 3, Kahaani 4, how long can I go on without getting bored out of my head?”
Well, that’s it for now. For more goss about Vidya’s next with Sujay Ghosh, you will have to keep watching this space!
