After winning accolades in India and internationally, Paresh Mokashi, director of Harishchandrachi Factory, has now decided to enter the glamorous world of Bollywood. While he has made one of the most iconic films of Marathi cinema, Paresh this time around too, will be making a different film for Bollywood unlike its masala entertainers.
His upcoming film titled Bhaykatha Heer Ranjha Ki is a political satire that deals with the life of common people living around borders. Though the name suggests the epic tale of romance between Heer & Ranjha, the film won’t be concentrating on it, instead a simple love story will just be a backdrop. The film in question essentially talks about the cruel ways people are punished by being tagged as ‘terrorists’ just because they trespass restricted areas around the border by mistake. In a light hearted manner, the film will also have a funny take on romance.
Sangeeta Ahir of Mangal Murti Films will be producing it and she is excited about the script. Applauding the concept that Paresh has come up with it, the producer added that though the film doesn’t have a renowned cast, the passion of the filmmaker is more than enough to make it a success.
