Disney Channel announces the premiere of FELUDA – THE KATHMANDU CAPER on January 1, 2011 at 9 am as the special New Year treat for all Disney fans. The title is the first ever animated TV movie based on one of India’s best loved detective series – Feluda, by globally acclaimed Oscar winning director, author Satyajit Ray. The story of The Kathmandu Caper is fast paced, invigorating and action packed.

Said Devika Prabhu, Associate Director, Programming, Walt Disney Television International India, “As a part of our ongoing commitment to showcase quintessential Indian stories, we are very excited to have Feluda usher in the New Year on Disney Channel, as an exclusive premiere on Jan 1st. It is an extremely popular detective series by a master storyteller, Satyajit Ray, whose appeal goes beyond time and age of the reader.”

Tapaas Chakravarti Chairman & CEO of DQE Group said, “We are delighted that this New Year will begin with children watching ‘Feluda – The Kathmandu Caper’. This adaptation of Hon. Satyajit Ray’s Feluda stories is an animated adventure which is a fast paced mystery laced with subtle humor and will introduce a whole new genre of animation to Indian audiences.  The support from Disney Channel in bringing Satyajit Ray’s short stories to life will see these stories crossing boundaries with world-wide appeal.”

Sandip Ray said “I am happy that DQ Entertainment has taken the initiative to animate the stories based on the adventures of Feluda, the detective created by my father Satyajit Ray. Feluda along with his side-kick Topshe have entertained Indian audiences and readers for over three decades and I sincerely hope the animated versions will be equally popular with the children.”

Feluda is a series of novels and short stories written by famous Indian director, author and painter par excellence, Satyajit Ray. The adventures of Feluda and Topshe have enthralled Indian readers for over three decades. In addition to the 32 National Film Awards and the Legion of Honour by the President of France, Ray was particularly acclaimed for his contribution to children’s literature, which included unpretentious and entertaining subjects of adventure, detective stories, fantasy and science fiction.
