A much thinner Paresh Rawal in Shivam Nair's Maharathi
Out of the many production houses which has made their foray into Bollywood in the last few years, a prominent name is that of Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd. The film company, which has delivered some big hits like Bhagam Bhag, Golmaal, Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya and Jab We Met, is all set to continue their blitzkrieg in Bollywood in the coming year.
While Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision has many big films lined up, their immediate next release is the suspense thriller Maharathi starring Paresh Rawal, Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri, Boman Irani, Tara Sharma and Neha Dhupia in lead roles. The film is based on Paresh Rawal's popular Gujarati play and is directed by Shivam Nair (who earlier directed Ahista Ahista). By the looks of it, Paresh bhai seems to have lost lot of weight. Whether the reason for the weight loss was the requirement of the character or some other reason, only time will tell!!!
For the time being, one hopes Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd. continues its victory run with Maharathi. The film is slated to release on August 22.
