Kolkata, Aug 8 (IBNS): SVF on Thursday announced its first release of year 2020 and it will be National Award-winning filmmaker Srijit Mukherji's Dwitiyo Purush, a sequel to his 2011 Bengali thriller Baishey Srabon.

The film has got a tagline 'Baishey Srabon er por.....Dwitiyo Purush’.

The story of Dwitiyo Purush will commence from where Baishey Srabon had left off and will see actor Parambrata Chattopadhyay reprise the role of chief detective Abhijit Pakrashi and actress Raima Sen bring back her character Amrita.

There will be a couple of new characters who will be essential to the spin off, as SVF said, however their names are not announced yet.

Talking about his new venture, Srijit said, “As it’s a thriller, the more the curiosity of the audience, the better it would be for the film. Therefore, I’d like to remain tight-lipped about the project for now. However, we will be revealing important cast details soon.”

Optimistic about the much-awaited sequel, Mahendra Soni, co-founder and director, SVF said, “Baishey Srabon changed the way how thrillers were perceived by the Bengali audience and created a landmark in this genre. Srijit is known to be a master- player when it comes to thrillers and I’m sure Dwitiyo Purush will have a similar effect on the audience. This film will be our first release of 2020!"

Baishey Srabon had also starred Tollywood superstar Prosenjit Chatterjee in the lead role.

Dwitiyo Purush will  go to floors soon and is slated to release on January 23, 2020 as the first official release of SVF for 2020.
