If Maharashtra ever had to decide on one essential icon to represent our culture & art, I doubt if any other name other than Purushottam Laxman Deshpande would come up! Such is his everlasting impact on us! Today we are celebrating Pula’s 100th Birthday just as we celebrated when he existed among us, but doesn’t he still exist among us? This year we are being gifted by a special gift & that is a biopic on Pu La Deshpande!
‘Bhai – Vyakti Ki Valii’ is the title of the film which is directed by Mahesh Manjrekar & the screenplay of the film is written by popular film critic turned writer Ganesh Matkari & the dialogues are written by senior writer Ratnakar Matkari who had worked on Pula’s writings many times in theatre! Everyone was excited to see who plays the role of Pula in this biopic. Sagar Deshmukh of ‘YZ’ fame seems to fit the part perfectly as evident from the teaser. Moreover, the film also stars a brigade of stars that include Iravati Harshe, Hrishikesh Joshi, Deepti Lele & others.
‘Bhai – Vyakti Ki Valli’ is set to release on 4th Jan! The film is produced by Mahesh Manjrekar Movies & Phalke’s Factory & is being presented by ‘Viacom 18 Motion Pictures’. The teaser of the film was also released with Viacom’s big Diwali release ‘Ani..Dr. Kashinath Ghanekar’ today in theatres & reports have come that the teaser has got the tremendous response from the live theatre audiences!
