Bengali superhit adventure film “Chander Pahar”, based on Bibhutibhusan Bandyopadhyay’s immortal children’s novel, will have a sequel.
To be produced by Shree Venkatesh Films, the sequel “Amazon Obhijaan”, will see director Kamaleswar Mukherjee returning.
Bengali superstar Dev will reprise his role of an adventurer in the “Amazon Obhijaan”.
“The film, which will also be the most expensive Bengali film conceived till date, will see Dev returning in his role as the famous adventurer Shankar exploring the length and breadth of South America, including the vast jungles of Amazon in search of mysterious land of gold, El Dorado,” the production house said.
The film will be shot extensively across Brazil.
Facing geographical challenges, savage tribes and wild animals like anacondas, black caimans, jaguar and vicious gold digger, Shankar will travel thousands of miles and fight off every danger to reach the mythical city of El Dorado.
“We will shOot underwater in two rivers, Rio Negro and Rio Solimoes,” Kamaleswar said.
“After being accepted as Shankar in Chander Pahar, where I had even shot with a lion on my trail, I am now looking forward to ‘Amazon Obhijan’ experience. And who else but Kamalda to direct,” Dev said.
This will be the 100th film for Shree Venkatesh Films, which launched in 1996 with “Bhai amar bhai”.
