Abhik Bhanu Penned ‘Statue of Mahatma’ To Be Adapted In A Movie, Starring PadmaShri actor Manoj Joshi

Ravi Sharma | November, 12 2021

Renowned filmmaker and veteran writer Abhik Bhanu is out with his fifth best-seller, Statue of Mahatma, and now the book is being adapted for big-screen.

Abhik Bhanu has penned a captivating and poignant tale of a retired schoolmaster who is fascinated by the iconic leader ‘Mahatma Gandhi’ fondly referred to as ‘Bapu’ and accepts the challenge to re-build his dilapidated statue in book, which is available in 8 languages. Taking a step further, Abhik Bhanu is now planning to adapt his own-book for big-screen, and PadmaShri and the National Film Award winner actor Manoj Joshi has been roped in to play the main protagonist in the film.

The filming will be held in Bhavnagar (Gujarat) and other surrounding locales. “Words fell short when we talk about Mahatma Gandhi and his teachings, people follow him across globe. Last year on 19th October 2019 during the 150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, our Prime Minister Narendra Modi had appealed writers as well as filmmakers to create films and television shows, etc. that popularize Mahatma Gandhi and Gandhism including his thoughts, ideology and principals. The PM had also urged to channelize its energy and make entertaining and interesting visuals that can motivate ordinary citizens and bring about positive transformation in the society. I was overwhelmed with the idea and that inspired me to write the book and now making a film on the subject too,” reveals Abhik Bhanu.

Apart from book adaptation, filmmaker Abhik Bhanu recently wrapped the shoot of his next venture, a historic drama based on a real-life incident, the film is titled 1922 Pratikar Chauri Chaura. The period drama is written and directed by Abhik Bhanu, made under the banner of Sarayu Vision, the film is co-produced by Anju Khare with Atul Kumar Pandey as the executive producer.

The film is slated for 2022 release, starring MP Ravi Kishan, Anil Nagrath, Ashok Banthia, Vijay Trivedi, Upendra Pandey and Ravi Shankar Khare along with 127 actors.
