After the success of two back-to-back films - 'Uma' and 'Ek Je Chhilo Raja' - director Srijit Mukherji is set to light up the silver screen again with his next venture 'Shah Jahan Regency', a modern-day adaptation of Bengali author Shankar's novel 'Chowringhee'.
"After the twin blockbuster box office successes, critical acclaim and festival feathers of #Uma and #EkJeChhiloRaja, comes our next offering..." he tweeted.
The film revolves around the lives and experiences of people who are, in some way or the other, associated with a reputed hotel in central Kolkata.
"My film has no similarities with the Bengali classic, though it takes inspiration from the same novel. My film is set in 2018 and I have reinterpreted the original plot in the backdrop of modern-day Kolkata," Mukherjee told PTI, adding that the release date is yet to be decided.
