The first thing that comes into mind whenever we hear someone say ‘Shyamchi Aai’, is Pandurang Sadashiv Sane, that is our beloved Sane Guruji. A few days back, director Sujay Dahake had announced the film ‘Shyamchi Aai’ out of this curiosity and feeling that the new generation should know about Shyam’s mother. Now the shooting of this movie has started. The shooting of the movie has started at a holy place called Pawas in Konkan. In today’s colorful era, this film is going to take the audience back to the old days as it is in black and white.
Producer Amruta Arun Rao’s ‘Shyamchi Aai’ is being produced under the banner of Amruta Films. With the auspicious hands of Maharashtra State Minister for Higher and Technical Education Shri Uday Samant, the muhurat and shooting of the film was started. The first Shooting schedule has started. Shooting of Shyamchi Aai, which plans to complete in two schedules. Sane Guruji wrote the book ‘Shyamchi Aai’ out of immense love, devotion and gratitude for his mother. Sane Guruji had written ‘Shyamchi Aai’ in just five days in Nashik jail. The mother of his mind, which he wrote down on paper, will now be seen on the big screen. Sujay has picked up the bow of ‘Shyamchi Aai’ with the aim of passing on Shyam and his mother to today’s generation. Sujay is trying to present some aspects of this which have been neglected till date. In this film, many actors from Konkan have been given a chance. Although Shyam’s title role was auditioned by child actors from all over Maharashtra, their names are still in the bouquet. The film will be shot in many beautiful places in Konkan.
From the beginning of his career, Sujay has always tried to make films that are different from the mainstream. Sujay, who has won national awards through ‘Shala’, has entertained the audience by making diverse and innovative movies like ‘Phuntroo’, ‘Ajoba’, ‘Kesari’. The film ‘Shyamchi Aai’ is the next step on this path, for which he has done a lot of research. Sujay and his team are working hard to ensure that their movie takes the audience back to the time of Shyam and his mother. This year marks the 150th birth anniversary of Dadasaheb Phalke, the father of Indian cinema, that’s why the whole team feels that this film should be a tribute to Dadasaheb.
