Bipin Nadkarni’s Darbaan, a family-drama based on a Rabindranath Tagore story, is set for release on ZEE5 on December 4.
The film, starring Sharib Hashmi, Rasika Dugal, Sharad Kelkar and others, revolves around the friendship between the son of a rich coal miner and his caretaker. Eventually, as the kid, Anakool, grows up and gets married, he has his own son taken care of by Raicharan, his caretaker.
Sharad Kelkar, who essays the character of Anakool, shares, “Darbaan brings forth a subject that is profoundly sensitive and it’s a special film for me. The relationships will play the most important role in the film; and what these relationships will go through will test their honesty. It is made with a lot of love and labour, I hope the audience enjoy watching it as much as we have enjoyed making it. I am glad it is premiering on ZEE5, getting it the reach it deserves.”
Sharib Hashmi, who plays Raicharan, adds, “Darbaan is extremely special to me, it is sure to win a lot of hearts. With the rising popularity of OTT platforms and the premiere on ZEE5, it will reach people across the globe. I thank ZEE5 for showing confidence in the film. It is really exciting to tap new audiences with a digital release.”
Darbaan is directed and produced by Bipin Nadkarni, who is making his debut as a director in Bollywood. The film is produced under the banner of Opticus Picture Company with Yogesh Beldar as co-producer.
