National Award-winning director Bipin Nadkarni, who has helmed noted Marathi films like Uttarayan and Aevdhese Abhaal, is venturing into Bollywood. His upcoming film, Darbaan, is a ‘heartwarming story of a master and his caretaker’ and is inspired by a short story by Rabindranath Tagore.

The Hindi-language film stars Sharib Hashmi, Sharad Kelkar, Sharib Hashmi, Rasika Dugal, and Flora Saini. The film was shot for 35 days over the span of three years. This is Bipin’s second association with Sharad. The actor had made his debut in Uttarayan (2004). The film had won the National Film Award for Best Marathi Feature Film.

Darbaan has been a lifelong dream for me and I feel so complete today,” Bipin shared. “I strongly believe that it is not easy to live with a character for so long but talented actor Sharib Hashmi played this role so beautifully. Along with him, actors Sharad Kelkar and Harsh Chaaya are also in the important roles and they are my all-time favourites. I had signed Flora a year before the film went on the floors when we were working on an ad film. Rasika Dugal has a short but impactful role.”

Sharib said, “In Darbaan, I am playing the role of a caretaker, who takes care of this child like his younger brother. He is like a part of the family but his life changes upside down when he commits a blunder that causes friction within the entire family. Shooting for this has been one of my most satisfying experiences.”

Darbaan is set to release on April 3, 2020. The film is distributed by Reet Film.
