Mira Nair is set to helm Bengali Detective as her next project. 

The film, which is based on a 2011 documentary by Phil Cox, follows a Calcutta based detective who while navigating the crime world of the city is secretly dreaming about dancing on Indian television. 

Sabrina Dhawan will be writing the script. Nair and Dhawan worked together on 2001's Monsoon Wedding. 

Nair's last film, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, opened the Venice Film Festival last year.
