Manoj Bajpayee starrer Bhonsle produced by Piiyush Singh will be released on the OTT platform SonyLiv on Friday. The film’s star cast also includes Abhishek Bannerjee, Santosh Juvekar.
Bhonsle is the story of Marathi policeman who goes beyond the feeling of regionalism and takes some steps which are shocking to the present society. There have been many discussions before about the subject of the film. Piiyush, who has shown the courage to make films on subjects like Bhonsle, recently said that it is imperative to give a glimpse of society in cinema. Regionalism has been a major problem of India and in such a situation it has been a very challenging film. We expect a good response from the audience.
“Due to the lockdown, new announcements of the company have been deferred. As everything will be normal, the company is announcing new films with some big stars.” Abhyanand Singh, the head of Golden Ratio Films, is also very excited about Bhonsle. He told that his Marathi film AB Ani CD with Amitabh Bachchan has been released just before the lockdown.
There was a lockdown upon release, after which the film was brought to Amazon Prime OTT. Abhyanand Singh said that, “Bhonsle‘s content is completely new to India. This film talks directly on the issues on which we hesitate to talk. He also said that in the future, the company intends to make such issue-based films.”
Meanwhile actor Manoj Bajpayee is elated that his critically acclaimed movie “Bhonsle” is finally releasing, and says it is a product of his belief system. It is the story of a man struggling to navigate a solitary life in self isolation.
“I am quite elated that ‘Bhonsle’ is a product of my belief system which got me so much international acclaim and the 2nd Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) will premiere on SonyLiv finally. It’s great news for me and the entire team! Looking forward to the streaming and audience response,” Bajpayee said.
