Mahesh Manjrekar's next Marathi film advancing toward theatrical release
Filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar has taken a bold decision regarding his next release. The Marathi film, Naay Varanbhaat Loncha Kon Naay Koncha, will be launched in the theaters on January 14, at a time when multiple movie postponements have adorned the headlines. Notably, the worrying COVID-19 condition and re-enforced curbs had led to postponements. The trailer for the upcoming thriller dropped earlier on Saturday.
Why does this story matter?
- Ever since the COVID-19 graph has started picking up pace again, big-screen releases have suffered a blow.
- Shahid Kapoor's Jersey, which was to premiere on December 31, 2021, was one of the earliest postponed ventures.
- Then, one after the other, makers of pan-India releases like RRR, Radhe Shyam, and Jared Leto's Morbius had to push back release dates in keeping with the present situation.
Manjrekar announced release date alongside new poster for the film
Manjrekar, whose last release (also a theatrical launch) was Salman Khan-starrer, Antim: The Final Truth, announced the release date for his next on Friday. He also dropped a new poster for the film that is going to capture the "spine-chilling reality of the city's underbelly." Starring Umesh Jagtap, Kashmera Shah, Chhaya Kadam, Shashank Shende, and Rohit Haldikar, Manjrekar has helmed its screenplay and direction.
