Hindi movie based on Feluda[edit]

In September 2016, Sandip Ray sold the rights to Sonar Kella to Pradeep Sarkar. Pradeep is to remake Sonar Kella, directed by Satyajit Ray, in Hindi. Nothing has been announced about the casting.[18][19]

Scripting of the Hindi adaptation of this cult detective story is currently in progress. Over the years, many in Bollywood have expressed their desire to make Feluda in general and Sonar Kella in particular. Director Shoojit Sircar was in the news for hoping to adapt Sonar Kella in Hindi. However, Sarkar finally walked away with the prized rights.

"Yes, it's true that I have bought the rights of 'Sonar Kella'. It will be inspired from 'Sonar Kella'. I have the Hindi rights to only this film and not the Feluda series. I am trying to make something very different. Once this script is ready,I will discuss it with Sandip Ray," Sarkar said.

Incidentally, no other director apart from the maestro himself and his son have ever directed a Feluda film in Bengali. Only Bibhas Chakraborty has made two Feluda telefilms. However, Sandip has been open to the idea of a good director adapting Feluda in Hindi. "I have given the rights of Baba's short story to Dibakar Banerjee. I have always maintained that if the director is competent, I am open to giving the Feluda rights in Hindi," he said.

According to Ray, the original names of the characters, including Feluda, Topshe, Jatayu, Mukul and Mandar Bose, will be changed in the Sarkar film. "I wanted to give the Hindi remake rights to a Bengali director. The advantage is that a Bengali director will have read the original book and watched the film. Things became very easy-going when Pradeep Sarkar met me to discuss this adaptation. It was a very warm and friendly meeting," Ray said, keeping the charges for remake rights a secret.

By 2017, Ray expected Sarkar to show him the screenplay. "As of now, we have had no discussions regarding the casting," Ray said. Will he want to collaborate with Sarkar once the Hindi film goes on the floor? "No, it will be his baby," Ray said.

Rumour of Feluda Hindi movie by Shoojit Sircar[edit]

In September 2013, director Shoojit Sircar told the Indian media that if he got any chance to remake Satyajit Ray's Sonar Kella for a worldwide audience,[20][21] he would cast actor Aamir Khan as Feluda.[22][23] However, in later years Sandip Ray confirmed that this would never happen, and Shoojit Sircar also stated he had told it as a joke, he was never serious about it and he had never thought of making a Feluda film.[24] As of September 2016, according to media reports, director Shoojit Sircar was trying to acquire the rights to Sonar Kella.[25][26]
