Guess Who Will be Playing Sant Tukaram in Subodh’s Next
Maharashtra’s poet-saint who holds a special place in the hearts of many, Sant Tukaram has been the subject of a couple of Indian movies earlier. The year 1936 saw Vishnupant Pagnis play the lead role in the movie titled Sant Tukaram, while Jitendra Joshi enacted the role of the saint in another movie based on this pious being’s life titled Tukaram, which released in 2012.
Recently, director Subodh Bhave took to social media to declare his next, which will be his second directorial venture after Katyar Kaljat Ghusali. His debut movie was a musical masterpiece based on a classic play of the same name and was lauded by the audience.
After tasting success with his directorial debut in 2015, Subodh is now focussing on his next, Pushpak Viman. All we know as of now is that Pushpak Viman will be centred on the life of the eminent saint, Sant Tukaram. The director has decided not to let the cats out of the bag as yet, which has got us interested, but curious.
Whether he has signed someone to play the lead in his movie or is still on the look-out of an apt actor is a mystery to the public. In fact, he hasn’t revealed anything about the star cast and is perhaps enjoying keeping his fans guessing.
Marathi cinema has no dearth of talented, versatile actors and we are sure, whoever Subodh finds fitting the shoes of the character, will definitely justify it. All we can do as of now is wait and watch! Here’s wishing Subodh and his team (whoever gets to be a part of it) the very best while we look forward to seeing another of those amazing scripts on Sant Tukaram’s life.
