    Mumbai (UNI): With last year's national recognition to Marathi film Shwaas, more and more producers, including non-Maharashtrians, are flocking in to make quality Marathi movies despite poor distribution network and marketing strategies. One such producer is Bangalore-based Gopi Mallaya who has decided to produce good regional films.

    Talking to reporters here last night, he said that his first Marathi film Naktichya Lagnala is ready for release and will hit the screens on April 28. The film boasts a star cast of noted Marathi actors like Sanjay Narvekar, Atul Parchure, Sonali Khare, Usha Nadkarni, Reema and late Sudhir Joshi. Mallaya said he plans to release the said film in 20 theatres across the state to begin with.

    ''I am aware that there are problems in getting Marathi films screened in Mumbai due to poor distribution. But, we are working on it and are confident that more and more Marathi films are released in Mumbai'', he added. He said he has three to four Marathi projects lined up and work on his next Marathi film Adrushya (invisible) will be shot in London.

    His recently released Bhojpuri movie Mangalsutra has received good response in Mumbai, he added. Other films that received critical reviews and good response from cities and towns across Maharashtra include Pailteer, Uttarayan and Dombivali Fast.
