When he was growing up, filmmaker Nagraj Manjule said that the world of Amitabh Bachchan films had a huge impact on him and he testified megastar for making him fall in love with movies.

Manjule, the creator of some of the most popular films of the last decade including “Fandry” and “Sairat”, said in his Jeur village in Maharashtra district of Solapur, it is Bachchan district.

“His films have had a huge impact on me, the beginning of my love for cinema. In my growing years, until I was in the top ten – before I failed and left the cinema – it was my life. is a huge Bachchan fan that none of his films I would have missed watching, ”the director told PTI.

Megastar films like “Yaarana”, “Main Azaad Hoon”, “Deewaar”, “Khuda Gawah” and “Satte Pe Satta” had a huge impact on him, he said.

“Satte Pe Satta”, essentially, the composer said he looked close to 50 times, robbing the cinemas only took Bachchan’s entry route as Babu’s assassin.

“I would have watched the film at least 50 times in those days just for that way and back home or sometimes just to watch that way! What an impact it had on me. I would watch three movie appearances- four of his, one. day! “From dressing up as his movie icon, to communicating his conversations, Manjule said he replicated Bachchan on the human screen in every possible way.

“Main itna bada deewana tha (I am such a big fan) I will copy your style, tie my shirt into topics like yours from ‘Deewaar’ and go to school. I will always suffer even, but never stop. Basically , first apne aapko Bachchan samjhta tha (I think I am Bachchan) and I will walk around like him, sharing his discussions, ”he added.

The 43-year-old is now preparing for his new “Jhund”, which is titled by Bachchan.

The film features a megastar like Vijay Barse, a retired Nagpur-based playwright who pioneered a slum football movement.

For Manjule, collaboration with his favorite artist is a treat.

“It’s sad when I will think, how can I be able to work with it. Before ‘Jhund’, I only worked with no actors. So I would think what would be the process, how I did guide him. But credit him, it really did not make me feel any pressure or burden. “

The film says it knows that working with the 79-year-old screenwriter is once in a lifetime and therefore wants to take advantage of it.

“I’m careful that this is once in a lifetime experience for me. Someone whose work has only been seen on screen and now is able to collaborate, great. I live all the time with him, every minute of working with Bachchan sir is precious, ”he added.

“Jhund” is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Raaj Hiremath, Savita Raj Hiremath, Manjule, Gargee Kulkarni and Meenu Aroraa under the banners of T-Series, Tandav Films Entertainment and Aatpat.
