Directed by the noted theatre personality Nipun Dharmadhikari, starring Sachin Khedekar and Pushkaraj Chirputkar, “Baapjanma”, the much awaited Marathi film will be released on 29th September 2017 all over Maharashtra. The film is presented by Everest Entertainment and produced by Sumatilal Shah and Sixteen By Sixty Four Productions. The announcement was made by Sanjay Chhabria of Everest Entertainment at a press conference held in Mumbai today.
Sachin Khedekar said, “Baapjanma, a term often used by Marathi folks, has already aroused curiosity, thanks to Nipun’s debut role as a Director of the film. The best part of the film’s script is its sensitivity. So far we have seen many movies focused on the subject of a father and his son. But in this movie, Nipun has presented this relationship in a different manner. It was a challenge to say something about emotion of a man who is not emotional. We all have made efforts to meet this challenge. Nipun is a writer and s director of today’s generation and has executed his creativity beautifully in this movie.”
Story, Script and Screenplay of Baapjanma”, is also written by Nipun Dharmadhikari. He said “For me it has been a privilege and a honor to work with a towering personality like Sachin Khedekar in my very first directorial venture in Marathi film. His sheer presence on the sets has been an encouraging factor for our team.”
Nipun has previously acted in Umesh Kulkarni’s ‘Highway’ and has been active on Marathi theatre in both commercial and experimental scenes as director. But it’s a web show for Bharatiya Digital Party ‘Casting Couch with Amey & Nipun’ that made him a household name. He is one of the few Marathi artists whose work has been acknowledged internationally. Nipun had been honored as one of Forbes India’s 30 Under 30 in the year 2015.
