Mumbai: Veteran actor Nana Patekar says his upcoming Marathi movie “Aapla Manus” has given him a chance to explore a unique and complex character that he has not had a chance to portray in the language.

“After ‘Natasamrat’, I was waiting for something special to come my way, a character that wouldn’t leave me even after the narration and with Maruti Nagargoje (the character), I found him,” Nana said in a statement.

“He is a complex character, something that I have never played before in Marathi cinema. He is a man of few words, has a peculiar dialect and mannerism, a characteristic that makes him so unique,” he added.

The Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Ajay Devgn FFilms production is directed by Satish Rajwade. It also features Sumeet Raghavan and Irawati Harshe, who play a young urban couple and share a complex relationship with the father. The unexpected death of the father marks the entry of Senior Inspector Maruti Nagargoje into their lives. Nagargoje turns their world upside down making them question their beliefs about life and family.

Nikhil Sane, Business Head – Viacom18 Motion Pictures Marathi and Colors Marathi, said: “In the last few years Marathi cinema has evolved in many ways, especially with its great ability to deal with diverse nature of stories reflecting our literary, social and cultural values.

“Most importantly, the response of Marathi audiences has been incredible which is clearly reflecting at the box office. ‘Aapla Manus’ has strong storytelling and stellar performances which will connect with our discerning audiences. I am confident that it is going to be the biggest Marathi film post, a treat for the Marathi audiences with none other than Nana Patekar as the protagonist.”

It will release on February 9.

Bengaluru: Cinema theatres open – Dearth of audience hurts owners

Cinema theatre

Bengaluru, Oct 24: The cinema theatres in the state had stopped operations seven months back because of coronavirus-induced lockdown enforced by the government. The theatres were allowed to operate from October 15 subject to certain conditions. Accordingly, films began to be screened in various towns and cities including this city.

During a week which went by thereafter, the audience response has been disheartening. The theatres have been waiting to receive the audience but the movie-goers seem to be keeping a distance from the theatres.

Films like ‘Love Mocktail’, ‘Shivaji Suratkal’, ‘Shivarjuna’, ‘Mayabazar 2016’ and ‘Kaanadanthe Maayavaadanu’ had been released in single screens and multiplexes during the last week. A few more films were added in between. More films are in the line to be screened in the coming week. The films that will be exhibited this week will be ‘Kurukshetra’, ‘KGF’, ‘Tagaru’, ‘Rajkumar’, ‘Kotigobba 3’, ‘Damayanthi”, ‘Diya’ and some more.

No audience: Even though many movies are getting released, there has not been any appreciable addition to the number of audiences as compared to last week. Most of the films are being released in multiplexes where only one or two shows have been arranged. There were cases in which a few shows were cancelled for want of audiences.

Old films a problem: Some exhibitors feel that the audience response has been better but not to the extent expected by them. They point out that the films being screened now are the old ones which have already been seen by the people on OTT and television. They feel that the audience response would have been far better if new films of stars were released.

President of Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce, K V Chandrashekhar, admits that the audience response so far has been lukewarm but expects the collections to increase once new films are released. Producer of ‘Shivarjuna’, Shivarjuna, says that his film was exhibited in 40 theatres in the first week and 20 more theatres have been added this week. He feels that with the release of new films, more and more audience will get attracted towards the theatres.

Mumbai, Oct 21 : Actor Sanjay Dutt, who recently confirmed that he was fighting cancer, on Wednesday shared a health update saying he has come out victorious in his battle with the disease.

The actor thanked his family and doctors for taking proper care of him. He also expressed his gratitude to well-wishers for showering him with love.

“This wouldn’t have been possible without the unwavering faith and support from all of you. I am eternally grateful to my family, friends and all the fans who have stood by me and been my source of strength through this trying time. Thank you for the love, kindness and the countless blessings that you have sent my way. I am especially grateful to Dr. Sewanti and her team of doctors, nurses and the medical staff at Kokilaben Hospital who have taken such good care of me in the last few weeks. Humbled and grateful,” he concluded.

Dutt’s fans and colleagues are extremely happy.

“One of the best news,” a user commented.

“So happy to hear this. Stay healthy,” wrote another.

A few days ago, Dutt had addressed his battle with cancer in a video posted by his friend, celebrity hairstylist Aalim Hakim.

In the video, the actor showed his scar mark, saying: “Good to be back in the salon. Got a haircut. If you see this, this is a recent scar in my life, but I will beat it. I will beat it, I will be out of this cancer soon.”

On August 11, Dutt, who was hospitalised a few days before that due to breathing problems and chest discomfort, shared that he was taking a break for medical treatment.

Although the actor or his family members did not reveal anything officially at that point, trade analyst and film industry insider Komal Nahta subsequently confirmed that the actor had been diagnosed with lung cancer.

“Sanjay Dutt diagnosed with lung cancer. Let’s pray for his speedy recovery,” Nahta had tweeted.
