Mahesh reveals why he SHELVED film with Naseeruddin

1 month ago 61

Actor-director

Mahesh Manjrekar

was supposed to make a Hindi film, titled '

Purana Furniture

' with

Naseeruddin Shah

. However, it was shelved and the filmmaker decided to make the film in Marathi with the title '

Juna Furniture

'. Majrekar decided to essay the role himself in the Marathi version of the film which was originally supposed to play by Naseeruddin in Hindi.

In an exclusive chat with ETimes, Mahesh revealed why the Hindi version with Naseeruddin could not be made.
The 'Vaastav' director revealed to ETimes, "I had spent a considerable amount of time developing the script for 'Purana Furniture.' Once the script was complete, we presented it to Naseeruddin Shah, who had a leading role in the film. Shah read the script and was highly impressed by it. However, due to limited funding, we were unable to proceed with the project."
He further added, "Then, we decided that we will release it in the Marathi language as 'Juna Furniture'. I am playing a lead role in the film along with my wife Medha Manjrekar. The film revolves around a devoted father who fights to bring justice for his wife, highlighting the plight of neglected

elderly parents

in a society consumed by materialism."
Apart from Mahesh and his wife Medha, 'Juna Furniture' also stars Anusha Dandekar, Upendra Limaye, Shivaji Satam, Sachin Khedekar and Sameer Dharmadhikari in pivotal roles.
