Manoj Bajpayee, Devashish Makhija collaborating for third time for 'Joram'
After their short Tandav, and feature film Bhonsle, actor Manoj Bajpayee and director Devashish Makhija are teaming up for a third project. Titled Joram, the film will be set in Jharkhand and Mumbai. Zee Studios is banking the project along with Makhijafilm, which is run by Anupama Bose and Makhija. The project will hit the floors by the end of next month.
- Bajpayee and Makhija's collaboration has always been fruitful.
- Their first project together, Tandav, is about a constable who has nothing going for him, while their second venture, Bhonsle is centered around a terminally ill constable.
- Bajpayee had bagged a National Award under Best Actor category for his role in Bhonsle.
- So, this reunion is an exciting one and all for the right reasons.
As per the official description of the film, it will revolve around a bereaved father who is on the run with his daughter from across half the country. Their urgency to escape the forces that want him dead and the ghosts of his past forms the core of the story. Joram will be "a thrilling, dramatic action movie," promises Makhija.
"My producing partner Anupama Bose and I, as Makhijafilm, look forward to our first collaboration with the courageous, visionary Zee Studios, and to my third outing with my muse and mentor - the indefatigable Manoj Bajpayee," the director added. Meanwhile, Bajpayee said the film will help him "push the envelope further." "I hope our joint endeavor will go very far from where we left."
"Working with like-minded producers and a director of Devashish's vision is exciting and extremely fulfilling. Devashish and my collaborations on two occasions have done magic," Bajpayee added. On his part, Shariq Patel, CBO, Zee Studios, said, "Zee Studios never shies away from taking the path untrodden and this film is yet another example of our commitment to producing great content."
