Satyajit Ray’s legendary Bengali movie Nayak is being adapted into a book by author and translator Bhaskar Chattopadhyay, titled Nayak: The Hero. The original screenplay was written by Ray himself and was one of his most loved films starring late Bengali superstar Uttam Kumar.
Nayak is a remarkably nuanced portrait of the life of a cinema superstar that is as powerful today as it was fifty years ago. Actress Sharmila tagore, who also starred in the movie, said in a press release, ” Nayak is a very important film in my career as an actor. This novelization of its brilliant original screenplay, fifty years after the film was made, is testimony to Satyajit Ray’s enduring genius as a storyteller.”
Published by HarperCollins India, Nayak: The Hero will be out on April 25, 2018.
