Ashutosh Gowariker was last seen as an actor in the 1994 favourite Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa. He returns, before the camera this time, with the Marathi film Ventilator, produced by, surprise surprise, Priyanka Chopra.
The teaser for the film has just been released. And it has piqued our interest!
Gajanan aka Gaju kaka has been admitted to a Mumbai hospital and his critical state is conveyed to his family and acquaintances back in Kolhapur. What follows is chaotic hilarity. The teaser looks anything but sombre, capturing perfectly the dark humour that is found in an otherwise grim situation.
Added bonus, a stellar cast with some of the biggest and most beloved Marathi film veterans, including Achyut Potdar, Sulabha Arya, Usha Nadkarni, Sukanya Kulkarni, Jitendra Joshi. Rumour has it, the film would star a whopping 116 actors!
Produced under the banner Purple Pebble Pictures, the film is directed by Rajesh Mapuskar, who previously wielded the megaphone for Sharman Joshi-Boman Irani starrer Ferrari Ki Sawaari.
Watch the teaser here:
The film will hit theatres on November 4 this year. Can’t wait!
