Marathi blockbuster in Bengali

Mahesh Manjrekar is exploring newer territories. Literally! The talented director, who has so far made films in Hindi and Marathi languages, has now decided to make his first film in Bengali. The film will be a remake of Manjrekar’s blockbuster Marathi hit ME SHIVAJIRAJE BHOSALE BOLTOY and will star Mithun Chakraborty in the role that Sachin Khedekar had essayed in the Marathi smash hit.

“He [Manjrekar] has a 3-film deal with Dar Pictures and the Bengali film will be made by Dar,” Arun Rangachari, Chairman of Dar Group, confirms the news. But does Manjrekar know Bengali, to do justice to the Bengali version? “Oh yes, he understands Bengali well. Besides, we have Mithun-da to guide us,” Rangachari states. Manjrekar had essayed the pivotal role in the Marathi version himself, but who will enact his role in the Bengali version? “Let that be a suspense,” Rangachari smiles.
