Resounding success of Mayawati in recently concluded UP assembly elections has not only made the power brokers turn their heads towards the dalit queen, it has also inspired our film makers. So much so that now a film has been planned on the life of UP chief minister.
Directed by Kailash Masoom, an ad film director, the film is named 'Bahenji - The great sister' and will show Pratima Kazmi playing the protagonist.
Since the subject is controversial, the director has made sure that he has a word with the dalit leader before even working on the project. And the good news for the first time director is that Ms Mayawati has given her go ahead for the movie.
To be made in a budget of Rs 3 crores, the film will be shot entirely in UP with some parts in Mumbai and Delhi. Though the film has no star attractions, our very own Jaggu Dada has agreed to play Raja Bhaiya in the movie, thus adding some star value to the movie.
Mithun, Ranjeeta pair to sizzle again!
Halla Bol will see the light of the day soon
