Nusrat and Gaurav to be paired together in Sayantan Ghosal’s next “Swastik Sanket”
Nusrat and Gaurav Chakrabarty are going to paired together in the upcoming film Swastik Sanket. Earlier they had shared screen together briefly in the film Crisscross. Swastik Sanket will be an adventure thriller that will be directed Sayantan Ghosal. Gaurav Chakrabarty has already worked with Sayantan in his last film Sagardwipey Jawker Dhan. With Nusrat it will be his first collaboration. The film will be produced by Eskay Movies. In the recent past the production house had taken a break from making movies as they were focusing more on web shows. Now with Swastik Sanket they are all set to make a comeback in movie making business. Other than Gaurav and Nusrat the film will also feature Rudranil Ghosh and Saswata Chatterjee in important characters.
The film will be based on the novel Narak Sanket written by Debarati Mukhopadhyay. Saugata Basu who has already collaborated with Sayantan Ghosal in many of their successful adventure thrillers like Alinagarer Golokdhandha and Jawker Dhan series, has written the adapted screenplay for the film. The story is set in today’s time but it has a connection from past as well from the period of second world war. It will have references of several elements from that period like Hitler, Netaji, Neo-Nazism, Biological warfare, deadly virus and its antidote. The angle of a deadly virus and search for its antidote is very much relatable with current pandemic situation also.
Shooting for the film is scheduled to begin from the end of this month at different locations of London. If everything goes as per plan then it will be the first Bengali film to commence shooting in abroad after lockdown.
