Zulfikar is an upcoming Indian Bengali Drama film directed by Srijit Mukherji. The film is based on adaptation of two of William Shakespeare’s tragedies: Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra. The shooting of the film has started, as of January 2016.
Srijit Mukherji to adapt two Shakespearean tragedies in one film
Be it the subject of his film or the star cast, filmmaker Srijit Mukherji never fails to surprise his fans. If a powerful all-women cast was one of the highpoints of his last release, Rajkahini, here is something bigger that Srijit promises in his next. The National Award-winning filmmaker has decided to adapt not one but two of William Shakespeare’s tragedies --Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra--and weave them into one film called Zulfikar.

What more? The filmmaker has also pulled off a casting coup of shorts by roping in some of the biggest Tollywood stars that boasts names such as Prosenjit Chatterjee and Dev. Interestingly, this is the first time the two stars will be seen sharing screen space. Though Prosenjit and Dev were to come together in Kamaleshwar Mukherjee’s Mahabharata, the project is yet to take off. The other big names include Jisshu Sengupta, Parambrata Chatterjee, Ankush, Kaushik Sen, Rudranil Ghosh and Kanchan Mullick. The ensemble female cast too boasts of big names such as Paoli Dam, Nusrat Jahan, June Maliah and Kyra Dutt, the Kolkata-based model who was recently seen in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Calendar Girls.

The filmmaker, who will start shooting for the film from December 8, says, “It’s the first ever double adaptation of Shakespeare on big screen. Two plays come together in a single plot. The story is set against the backdrop of shipping mafia,” says Srijit.
Ask who will play Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, and the Jaatiswar filmmaker says, “I don’t want to reveal that now.”
