Tota Roy Chowdhury is the newest entrant to the Bengali detective club as he will soon be seen on the silver-screen as the iconic sleuth Feluda in Srijit Mukherji's upcoming directorial "Feluda Pherot." In his excitement, an elated Tota stated that playing Feluda was the only item left on his bucket list. "Feluda Pherot" will include two stories from Satyajit Ray's "Feluda Samagra" – "Chhinomostar Obhishaap" and "Joto Kando Kathmandute".
To double the excitement, Srijit has shared the first look of the film in Twitter which has garnered an overwhelming response. Tota as Feluda looks fresh and smart, while Kalpan Mitra as Topesh seems to be the young learner. Anirban Chakraborty as the iconic character Lalmohan Ganguly looks quite intelligent.
"Srijit called me up and said he had four names in mind for Feluda. Of the four, he would choose one on several parameters, one of them being an audience poll. Some of the other parameters were his perception of the character and the dates of the actors. He also mentioned that the actor chosen would need to get into an extensive workshop for a month and a half. He wanted to know my schedule; I was also supposed to go for a look test. However, two days before the audition, he dropped the idea of a look test and confirmed me for the role," Tota said sharing how he got the opportunity to play Satyajit Ray's iconic creation Feluda.
