Based on Satyajit Ray’s Bhuswargo Bhoyonkor, Srijit Mukherji’s web series will present Tota, Anirban Chakrabarty, and Kalpan Mitra as Feluda, Lalmohan Ganguly and Topshe.
OTTplay first reported that after a delay of a year, Srijit Mukherji is gearing up for the second season of Feludar Goyendagiri this year. The preparations web series are on. Soon after the director finishes the shooting of Tekka – a collaboration between Srijit and Dev, he will start shooting the second season of the Feluda show in Kashmir for Hoichoi.
Based on Satyajit Ray’s Bhuswargo Bhoyonkor, the show will bring back Tota Roy Chowdhury, Anirban Chakrabarty, and Kalpan Mitra as Feluda, Lalmohan Ganguly and Topshe. In a recent interview, Tota informed us that he would start preparing for the show in February. He admitted that Feluda is a ‘passion project’ for him. Talking about his preparations, the actor said that he would deliver the ‘Feluda’ character exactly the way his director wants it to. “I believe, on a set, there should be only one boss, the director,” he said.
Trolling the makers and performers of Feluda from across all the productions is a fad on social media. From Parambrata Chatterjee’s Feluda to Indraneil Sengupta’s performance and Tota’s depiction – every Feluda has been mindlessly trolled by a section of netizens. Tota said that he stays away from such negativity. “If there is any constructive criticism, I embrace it. I don't have time for the rest,” said the actor.

As of today, Srijit has adapted three Feluda stories – Chhinnomostar Obhishap and Kailashey Kelenkari for Addatimes and Darjeeling Jawmjawmat for Hoichoi. Now he is all set to bring the magic of Kashmir as he will be adapting Bhuswargo Bhoyonkor. Traditionally, Srijit makes Feluda a period piece sticking closely to the original story. Talking about this, his Feluda Tota said, “Satyajit Ray created two immortal Feluda films – Sonar Kella and Jai Baba Felunath. Nothing can be better than the way he captured the spirit of the books he wrote. Ours is a homage to his creation. He did not want to make things different from the way Ray created the books. Hence, we stay close to his writings as much as possible.”
Srijit and his team will travel to Kashmir in March-April for shooting.
