Jeet- a film about social changes will have a thrilling cycle race as a major sequence of the film. The race was picturised at Bhandara Ghat between Bhushan Pradhan and Sachin Danai along with the state level cycle-racers. The film is produced by Preetpal Singh Shergil and directed by Sagar Chavan.
Shooting of the race was very difficult as ghat roads are narrow and have hairpin bends. As real cycle race was also in progress crew struggled to get their shots canned in the heavy rains. DOP Manoj Shaw had to complete this shoot at one go as cycle racers would not have stopped for anybody. Shaw said, “As roads were very dangerous and there is a deep valley on the ghat roads we had to take all kind of precautions. Maintaining speed of the cycle in these raods is not an easy job. The entire experience was very enjoyable and lerning.”
The next part of this race will be shot at Balewadi stadium in Pune.
The story of this film has been written by Majushree Gokhale, screenplay by Sagar Chavan. The film also stars Sayaji Shinde, Trishala Shaha, Sharad Ponkshe, Manoj Joshi, Vilas Ujawane, Anjali Ujawane, and Varun Gulati.
