New film on Swami Vivekananda's life in making
A film titled "The Light- Vivekananda", which portrays the transition from a young Vivekananda to one of the greatest preachers of all time, will be presented on the silver screen by director Tutu Das.
The historic Town Hall in the city was transformed to look like the Art Institute of Chicago, where Vivekananda delivered his famous speech in 1893, as part of shooting for the film. Das says it will be shot in Bengali and Hindi but producers are planning to dub it in 18 other languages.
"I have tried to recapture the event-filled life of Swami Vivekananda, starting from when he was a little boy called 'Bile', to Narendranath Dutta in his youth when he undertook visits to northern India to his last days," Das told reporters on the set at Town Hall. PTI
