Eden Gardens groundsman has Muttiah Muralitharan in documentary film

Sri Lanka and the world’s highest Test wicket-taker Muttiah Muralitharan has figured in the documentary film of Eden Garden’s curator Prabeer Mukherjee.  A documentary film on Prabir Mukherjee, who, at the age of 86, died in June in Kolkata will be released soon.

“The film takes you on a journey of discovering Prabir Mukherjee as a personality,” said his grand-son Probor Mukherjee. “It deals into his personal and professional life and his tenure as a curator at the Eden Gardens.”

“It is a sort of an autobiography,” he continued. “A few shots were taken when my grandfather was alive and he knew about this film. Sadly, he is not there now.

“It is a mixture of few languages including Bengali, English and Hindi. The title song is in English.

“We had requested Sourav Ganguly for few shots but because of his unavailability, we could not have his voice in the film,” he explained. “This film has Prabit Mukherjee’s conversation with Ravi Shastri, VVS Laxman, Muthiah Muralitharan, Laxmi Ratan Shukla, Raju Mukherjee, etc.

“The film is officially selected for the 22nd Kolkata international film festival”.
