Controversial novel on Tagore makes it to the silver screen
Sunil Gangopadhyay’s controversial novel Ranu O Bhanu, based on Rabindranath Tagore’s life, will now be made into a film. Producer Manish Goswami of Siddhant Cinevision has already bought the rights of the controversial work. And if rumours are to be believed, Dr Chandra Prakash Dwivedi may hold the directorial reins.
Though Manish Goswami did not respond to our calls, a source close to the filmmaker said, “Ranu O Bhanu is one of the most controversial novels of recent times. Manish has bought the rights from its author Sunil Gangopadhyay. The story explores Tagore’s romantic relationship with his sister-in-law. Finding it rather interesting, Manish decided to make a film based on it. He is currently working on the script.”
About the project,Manish wants to keep everything rather hush-hush at the moment. He intends to cast Amitabh Bachchan in Tagore’s role. He, then, will announce the film in a big way.”
