Sharmila Tagore, Simara, Manoj Vajpayee-starrer Gulmohar to release in August
The movie marks the return of Sharmila to films after 12 years
The shooting for Gulmohar, starring Sharmila Tagore, Manoj Vajpayee and Amol Palekar, is complete and the film will release in August this year.
The film is directed by Rahul Chittela, who made the 2016 film Azaad.
A family drama, Gulmohar is about the multi-generation Batra family which is set to move out of their 34-year-old ancestral home. This move triggers a re-discovery of the bonds that have held them together while they grapple with personal secrets and insecurities.
With the film, veteran actor Sharmila is returning after 12 years. She was last seen in the 2010 film Break ke Baad. She will be seen playing the grand matriarch of the Batra family. “After a considerable gap, I am very happy to be in the familiar and well-loved ambience of a film set. I agreed almost immediately to be a part of Team Gulmohar - after the moving narration of this heartwarming and beautifully written story/
script. It is a very layered and absorbing family drama. I am sure many will enjoy watching it together with their loved ones," she says.
The Family Man actor Manoj Bajpayee on being a part of Gulmohar, says, "For me, there were many reasons to sign the film. Firstly, the narrative of the film was extremely candid and relatable. Secondly, sharing screen space with Sharmila ji was such an honour and above all, Rahul always came across as an intelligent talent and a man of integrity! I hope that the audience too will love it as much as I love being a part of it."
Commenting on his choice of story and cast, Rahul says, "Gulmohar is an intimate story about family and home. I am very excited to wrap the shooting with such an incredible ensemble of actors and crew members, all of whom are collaborating with utmost purity to tell this story! We can’t wait to bring it to the audience soon!"
