The animation biggie has also bagged exclusive rights to make a three part TV feature on Satyajit Ray’s Feluda detective series. He wrote 35 Feluda stories which were first published in Bengali children’s magazine in 1965.
The first and the second part of the CGI series are under pre-production. “Depending on its success, we will make a feature film. This is a prime property and we are in a revenue-sharing model with the family. The first of the series will be launched this year. About 4-5 suitors have approached us for distribution rights. But we are yet to take a call on it,” added Chakravarti. Also in the pipeline is the animated series of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book.
