Mithun Chakraborty Starrer ‘Kabuliwala’ Set for Unique Outdoor Shoot in Kargil


The much-anticipated Bengali film “Kabuliwala,” directed by Suman Ghosh and starring the iconic Mithun Chakraborty in the title role, is creating a buzz as it gears up for a distinctive outdoor shoot. Drawing comparisons to its 1957 predecessor, the film has captured the curiosity of fans since Mithun Chakraborty’s name was announced in the lead.

Initially contemplating international locations, the production company underwent a thoughtful process in selecting the perfect setting for the film. Afghanistan, the heart of “Kabuliwala,” seemed a natural choice, but the volatile political situation prompted a change in plans. Recent reports indicated deliberations about shooting in various West Asian countries like Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, yet Mithun Chakraborty’s concerns about his physical well-being led to a change in direction. As a result, the filmmakers have opted for an in-country location.

In a surprising turn of events, the picturesque region of Kargil has been chosen for the outdoor shoot of “Kabuliwala.” The film’s story finds resonance with the geography of this region, making it a fitting backdrop for the cinematic narrative. This decision marks a significant moment for Bengali cinema, as it embarks on a creative journey in the breathtaking landscapes of Kargil and Ladakh.

According to insiders, the outdoor shooting is slated to commence in the first week of the upcoming month. The film’s unit is expected to arrive at the location by the end of the current month, eagerly preparing to capture the essence of the narrative against the stunning backdrop of Kargil. With a scheduled release date on Christmas later this year, the film’s makers are poised to deliver a memorable experience for Bengali cinema enthusiasts.

“Kabuliwala,” with its talented cast including Abir Chatterjee, Sohini Sarkar, and the young Anumegha promises to be a captivating cinematic journey. As the film unfolds against the majestic vistas of Kargil, it is set to offer audiences a unique visual and emotional experience that resonates with the essence of the story.
