Following the trend that Munnabhai M.B.B.S started, Indian doctor, Nikhil Kaushik, residing in North Wales, has produced a film called Bhavishya - The Future. Kaushik is a consultant ophthalmologist at North Wales' Wrexham Maelor Hospital. What is unique about this film is that is stars real life medical students from Manchester Medical School, as well as from India.
In addition to them, it also stars talented actor, Saeed Jaffrey. During the process of casting, Kaushik spread the word that he wanted to cast people who completely fit the bill. And so real doctors were cast. A lot of the scenes were shot at Wrexham Maelor Hospital, itself. It seems that the film is a British take on the hugely successful, Munnabhai M.B.B.S and will also tackle the theme of doctors migrating from India to UK. A romantic love story, it should hit theatres by August end.
