Here's something novel that the crew of Vibhu Puri's first directorial has decided to do...
To rekindle the Indian pride and spread the work of the legend Shivkar Bapuji Talpade, the Hawaizaada team has decided to install the plane created by him at the Versova beach. It is a lesser known fact that Shivkar Bapuji Talpade, an Indian, flew the first plane in the history of aeronautics. The unsung hero had his plane take off from Girgaum Chowpatty back in 1895.
The plane which is being installed is the replica of the old model which Shivkar Bapuji Talpade had created. This plane has also been used in the film. The director Vibhu Puri and Ayushmann Khurrana (who will be seen enacting the role of Shivkar Bapuji Talpade) will be visiting the place where the plane will be installed and talk to people about the work of the legend.
The team was keen to install the plane at Girgaum Chowpatty, as that was where Shivkar Bapuji Talpade’s plane had taken off. But as they were unable to get permission from the authorities, they will now be doing it at the Versova beach.
A spokesperson informed, “It is a matter of pride for us as Indians to know about a legend like Shivkar Bapuji Talpade. The unsung hero has been recognized by a lot of institutions like that of the Indian Science Congress, of him being the first person to fly a plane. We will be assembling the plane at Versova beach where people will be able to see and learn about Shivkar Talpade's plane. The idea is to spread awareness and mark his achievement."
We too agree that the work of such a great hero should not go unnoticed. If more and more people get to know about this achievement, maybe some glory would return to this real-life hero. Hai na BollywoodLifers?
