Kolkata, Dec 21 (IANS) Still riding high on the success of his ‘Moner Manush’, Bengali filmmaker Gautam Ghose Tuesday said his next venture would be a bilingual in English and Hindi about a displaced child.
‘My next film ‘Lala’ is about a displaced child and his incredible energy and endurance for life,’ Ghose said on the sidelines of the felicitation ceremony for the ‘Moner Manush’ team organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
”Lala’ is the name of a displaced boy in the film. It will be a bilingual film in English and Hindi,’ he said.
Ghose’s ‘Moner Manush’ had bagged the Golden Peacock award at the recent International Film Festival of India at Goa.
The film was based on Sunil Gangopadhya’s 2008 novel ‘Moner Manush’. It revolves around the life and philosophy of Lalon Fakir, a 19th century Bengali philosopher poet. The lead role was played by noted Bengali actor Prosenjit Chatterjee.
The film deals with his teachings, his separation from his family and creation of a settlement in a forest, including people who have been pushed out of their society and family.
