Following the huge success of the music of films like Jogwa, Natarang, Singham, Agneepath and the recently release PK, the ace musician duo of Ajay-Atul will soon be seen in a new avatar of producers. That’s not all! National Award winning actor Girish Kulkarni who enthralled the audience with his roles in films like Deool, Valu and Pune 52, is set to make his direction debut by helming the microphone in the upcoming film Jaudya Na Balasaheb.
With so many established names from the industry including Poonam Shende of Saarthi Entertainment who will be producing the film along with Ajay-Atul Productions, coming together, there is excitement in the air. Director Umesh Kulkarni and Vinay Ganu will also be co-producing Jaudya Na Balasaheb under the banner Arbhaat Nirmiti. Girish Kulkarni, who incidentally is the writer and lead actor of the film, will make his foray into direction and so will Ajay-Atul into production. Ajay-Atul have also composed the songs for the film and believe that the music will leave a lasting impression on the listeners. Umesh is known for films like Masala, Pune 52, Deeol and Vihir while Poonam has been associated with Matter and Swami Public Ltd. Along with these two is Vinay Ganu who has produced films like Anumati, Postcard and the upcoming Highway.
Jaudya Na Balasaheb is a comedy film and lies much outside the genres of Girish’s earlier ventures. The film stars veterans Reema Lagoo, Mohan Joshi as well as Girish, Sai Tamhankar, Manava Naik, Bhau Kadam, H N Ramchandran, Vibhawari Deshpande and Shrikant Yadav among others. The lyrics by Vaibhav Joshi have been given music by Ajay-Atul while Nitin Vaidya is the executive producer of the film.
The shooting of the film is expected to start in February-March in and around Pune according to Umesh Kulkarni. The press conference saw actors Mohan Joshi, Reema Lagoo, Sai Tamhankar, Bhau Kadam, Manava Naik, H N Ramchandran, Vibhawari Deshpande and Shrikant Yadav in attendance. Also present were Umesh and Girish Kulkanri, Ajay-Atul, Poonam Shende and Vinay Ganu.
