Last evening, Zee Studios hosted an intimate premiere of their first in-house production film Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari for their cast and crew at a suburban theatre. There was uproar in the air as the Abhishek Sharma directorial gears up to release on Sunday in theatres across the country.
Donning the red carpet, were present the film’s cast comprising Manoj Bajpayee, Diljit Dosanjh, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Karishma Tanna, director Abhishek Sharma, Zee Studio’s CEO Shariq Patel, music composers Javed-Mohsin amongst many others. The unit that was reuniting after many months were upbeat to see each other in person.
The biggest draw factor for the actors and the crew is the experience of watching their labour of love on the big screen. As the experience remained conspicuous by its absence through the pandemic, the team was elated that they got the full 70mm experience for their movie.
Talking about it, captain of the ship Abhishek says, “Movies like this are family experiences and that was the whole idea of making this film. This is for community viewing and for families to enjoy together. I am glad that the film is releasing in theatres. We were so emotional at the film’s premiere because it’s been quite a cataclysmic year for all of us. This felt like the first semblance of normalcy returning to our lives. We laughed together and there were tears of joy. For many reasons, this is one of the most special films for me.
