HYDERABAD: “Sairat, will now be remade in four languages one of which is Telugu for sure,” said the Marathi blockbuster movie’s director Nagraj Manjule on the special screening and interaction session organised by the Maharashtrians of Hyderabad group at Inox MP Mall and Ravindra Bharthi respectively recently.

 Sairat has broken all records of Marathi cinema and regalig the Maharashtrians in the twin cities for nine weeks now. “It was easy for me to choose Hyderabad as the location on the second and significant half of the film as I had my brother and a friend in here who helped me through the shoot procedures. Hyderabad plays an important role in the film, the cameramen and other technicians are from the city”, adds Nagraj. Besides him, lead actress Rinku Rajguru and other supporting cast were present at the event.

Talking about the reach and popularity of the film, Inox’s manager pointed that artists and stars from Telugu and Tamil industry also watched the film and appreciated. Producers Allu Arvind and Dil Raju, music composer RP Patnaik and likes were amongst the celebrity guests at the screening.

Sairat (meaning wild) is regarded not just a film, but a movement. The movie touches the untouched area of inter-caste marriage and honour killing besides the director’s conscious revolt against the tyranny of Bollywood and its corrupt star system.

Although there did not seem anything startlingly novel about the poor-boy-rich-girl love story, its raging success cannot be ignored. All credit to the director who choose non-actors and gets such appreciable work done by them.
