A still from “Nayak

A restored version of Satyajit Ray’s Nayak will screen at the upcoming Berlin International Film Festival in the ‘Berlinale Classics’ section.

The film, that won a Special Recognition in 1966 at the same festival, has been restored by Rdb Entertainments in 2K resolution last year.

Ray’s Nayak is a film about a film star who is travelling to Delhi from Calcutta to receive his National Award and reveals a lot more about his personality to a young journalist than he intends to.

The film had also won the National Award for Best Feature in Bengali.

Five other Ray classics, including Charulata, Mahanagar, Kapurush, Mahapurush and Jai Baba Felunath had been restored earlier by Rdb Entertainments.
