A grand music launch of “Maalik Ek” movie starring Jackie Shroff as Shirdi Sai Baba was held in a five star hotel in Suburbs of Mumbai. Jagjit Singh, who was the chief guest, unveiled the music of Maalik Ek, composed by Anup Jalota, distributed by T-Series.
The event was attended by the entire cast of Movie including Jackie Shroff, Divya Dutta, Shakti Kapoor, Vidya Sinha and many others. Anup Jalota, Producer Kishori Shahane Vij, Co-Producer Nisha Suman Jain & Director Deepak Balraaj Viiz were the perfect host.
The highlight was when Anup Jalota brightens the event by singing the songs of the movie live. Promos of Maalik Ek won appreciation of everyone. Jackie Shroff in his best form shared his experience of playing the role of Sai Baba with the media. Jackie Shroff has also sung a song “Sai Baba Ache” in movie.
On the occasion producer Deepak Balraj Vij told, ‘I watched films and read books on Saibaba. Many books have controversial things but we have not taken anything. Specially ‘Sat Sai Charitra’ written by Hemant Pant helped me a lot to know Baba. In the film we have not shown Baba as God but he is like a common man who gets angry also.’
Why he cast Jackie Shroff for lead role of Saibaba? ‘I and Jackie Shroff had worked together for few films before. Structure of Jackie is similar to Baba. Secondly he is good human being that reflects on screen. When I asked Jackie to do this role he was surprised. I went to his home with Dadhi-Muchh. He put on his face that. Once we show him in the get up of Baba we never discussed after that. He was the perfect actor to portray Baba,’ adds Deepak.
Talking to GlamGold music director Anup Jalota said, ‘I am also playing role of Das Ganu in the film. I have also written one song which is sung by Ghulam Ali Saab. Jackie has also sung a song for which Jaideep gave the music.’
Maalik Ek is releasing all across India on 29th October 2010. Presented by Anup Jalota, Sudhir Choudhrie & Nisha Suman Jain.
