Misha: Good Afternoon Jeetu Bhai Doshi, Dhananjay Galani Ji & Shyam Bhimsaria Ji & welcome to India’s most trusted online news channel on Politics, Sports & Entertainment.
Jeetu Bhai Doshi: Good Afternoon. Dhananjay Galani: Good Afternoon. Shyam Bhimsaria: Thank you & very Good Afternoon.
Misha: So Shyamji, you are in the news again.
Shyam Bhimsaria: Yes… By god’s grace, you see!
Misha: 2016 surely has given you what it has not given Shahrukh, Hrithik & Aamir. 3 Releases in a year. How do you feel about it?
Dhananjay Galani: You missed Salman Khan.
Shyam Bhimsaria: Jokes apart. Besides obviously feeling good, I also feel a bit nervous. 3 movies in a year mean 3 times responsibility. Not that I am not prepared, but it means fraternity trusts you & I now have to live up to their expectations.
Misha: Okay, so tell us, in “Tere jism Se Jaan Tak” you played a bad man, then you played a drunkard in “Foxstar & Murugadoss” film “AKIRA”. Again in “Chal Akela Re” you seem to be playing a comic villain. Why do only such anti-good-society roles come your way?
Shyam Bhimsaria: Ha ha ha…. then comes one role in “Bole India Jai Bhim” to clear all my sins.
Misha: Hmmm! Playing a role of villain in one, Comedian in other & now a hard-core serious stuff as Baba Saheb Ambedkar. Your versatility is a sure thing.
Shyam Bhimsaria: Thank you.
Misha: You have had a success run in the theaters with so many successful shows & then 2014’s best director’s award. Have you put your theaters on a hold?
Shyam Bhimsaria: No… They just have been pushed a bit. But our target of doing 6 shows a year is well within reach. Besides Sairam Film’s CHAL AKELA RE, I am also directing 3 short films for the famous novelist Neil D’Silva & Varun Prabhu.
Misha: We guess, that must be taking away all your energies.
Shyam Bhimsaria: Yes! energies drain out, but the more you work. More energetic you feel.
Jeetu Bhai Doshi: Ah, you should see Shyamji’s energies while on sets. I have seen him rehearsing like crazy before going for a take. He would rehearse in the mornings, nights, in the washroom, on the dining table, and even in the hall when 40-50 people were around him. Someone dare to disturb him with their words. And then you see the output. Class apart.
Shyam Bhimsaria: Thank you Jeetu Bhai. Even here at Nagpur, we actors & all the technicians would literally collapse working 15-18 hours a day. But Gayatri Films & 5 Finger’s team was so caring & so respectful that anybody would go to any extent to give his/her best. God bless them all.
Misha: Starting the year with a release on 1st January 2016 must be an eventful year for you.
Shyam Bhimsaria: Yes, through this movie’s set that I met Captain of our ship, Subodhji our director. He asked me to audition for this prestigious role. I remember him telling me then that “Think we got our Baba Saheb”.
Misha: All the best Shyam Ji for all your projects.
Shyam Bhimsaria: Thank you.
Misha: Mr.Jeetu, please tell us about your 1st experience on filmmaking.
Jeetu Bhai Doshi: First & foremost, without Galaniji’s support I could not have imagined kick-starting the project. Subodhji – our director sir, when brought the subject up to me, I felt that I have much to give in return to the society. I immediately decided that I would do it. And trust me, I just decided and the rest of the things along with good people started connecting with the project by God’s grace.
Misha: Were you not scared of the touchy Sensitive subject?
Jeetu Bhai Doshi: Scared??? Intentions were right so we had the guts & the right team to overcome them.
Misha: Okay, since now the movie is in Marathi. Are you planning to have it in other languages too?
Jeetu Bhai Doshi: Yes, in months to come we plan to dub it in Hindi for a Pan India release. If all goes as per the planning, we shall also do it in English for a foreign release too.
Misha: Anything instance which you wish to share about the shooting with NAC?
Jeetu Bhai Doshi: Everyone has worked very hard on this. 49-50 degrees of Nagpur/Kamptee’s heat could not melt the metal of dedication by my technicians & Artists. Inspiration was only that we have to complete the film. Not mentioning the local support that we got, will be an injustice to them.
Misha: If the conditions were so adverse, was it not sensible to wait for winters?
Dhananjay Galani: Conditions were adverse, but we were all prepared & well equipped. We wanted it to be ready this year, as this year marks the 125th Birth Anniversary of Shri Baba Saheb Ambedkar & the week of release also marks Dhamma Chakra Pravartan Din – the Memorial Day when Baba Saheb Ambedkar who accepted Buddhism as his religion.
Misha: That’s so noble. Okay, so you have recently launched the Music of the film. What do you have to say about it?
Dhananjay Galani: Yes, it has 4 soulful songs (Music by Dinesh Arjuna). Zee, liked the music so much that they took the rights from us & released them under their banner of ZEE MUSIC.
Misha: That’s music to our ears. Galaniji say something about your cameo in the movie.
Dhananjay Galani: Ha ha ha….not just me, Jeetu Bhai also appears on the screen.
Shyam Bhimsaria: You watch the film Misha, Galaniji has looked an adorable Munim Ji. I wish I was the writer. Would have certainly added a few more lines for him.
Jeetu Bhai Doshi: (Handing over Rs 100 note to Galani) Galani, I sign you for my next project as an actor.
Shyam Bhimsaria: Not fair Galaniji, snatching away our livelihood?
Misha: Going by the talks in the industry, this movie deserves quite a lot major awards. Any light on that?
Dhananjay Galani: Frankly I have no idea. Awards are just a token of appreciation for all the hard work that everyone has put in. Yes, we will be more than happy if we get some. Shyamji has already given a sterling performance. Besides gaining some weight for this role he has also worked very hard on his dialogues, his accent, his body language, his overall persona as Baba Saheb Ambedkar. I will not be surprised if he receives an award.
Misha: Very pleased to have had this conversation with you all today. We wish you & your entire team all the best & heartiest congratulations for this brave & classic movie Bole India Jai Bhim.
Jeetu Bhai Doshi: Jai Bhim Dhananjay Galani: Bal Bhim Shyam Bhimsaria: Jai Bhim Bal Bhim
