Director, Arindam Sil said, “Written by Satyajit Ray, Feluda is a timeless character which has swooned the audiences over years, but our show takes a modern day take on this iconic character. I have enjoyed sketching and getting into the nuances of the character and have poured my life into it. I believe that Paramabrata has brought to life his extra-ordinary qualities and has fit into the role beautifully. I am eager for the audience to crack this mystery with their favourite detective. With ZEE5 onboard, the series will reach the depth of the country.”

Parambrata Chattopadhyay adds, “We cannot wait to bring the iconic character - Feluda back on screen with a contemporary twist.  Working with Arindam was a pleasure, his film-making skills are top-notch which incite your inner curiosity. His stories unravel various twists and keep the audience at the edge of their seats. The celebrated film-maker Satyajit Ray's character Feluda has carved a niche. Arindam has captured his gripping adventures, observations, and humorous quips wisely in Shabash Feluda. I am sure the audience will love this whodunit murder mystery.”

Shabash Feluda will stream on ZEE5 from 5th May!
