Priyanka's Marathi dramedy seems interesting from the songs and poster...
After her success with Bhojpuri cinema, Priyanka Chopra is all set to make a mark in Marathi film industry. The actress's production house Purple Pebble Pictures is coming out with a Marathi film titled Ventilator. She took to her social media platforms today to release not just the first poster of the film, but also two songs from the film's album. The songs are in the spirit of Ganpati Festival, which is just around the corner, so there could not have been a better timing for the release.
Ventilator has been written and directed by Rajesh Mapuskar, who has previously helmed the Sharman Joshi starrer film Ferrari Ki Sawaari. Ferrari Ki Sawaari was an wholesome family entertainer and was loved by family audiences. Ventilator's tagline on teh first poster also reads "Fun. Family. Festival." so we can be sure that another family entertainer is on its way. We see electrocardiogram of a heartbeat in the background, that forms the outline of Lord Ganesha's face, so we can assume Ganpati and Hospital play an important role in this film. And that is about everything that the first poster reveals to us.
The songs released are titled Ya Re Ya and Jai Deva. Both songs have been composed by Rohan and lyrics are penned by Manoj Yadav. Both are in honour of Lord Ganesha, and while Ya Re Ya is more of a subtle and soft number, like a prayer, Jai Deva is more on the lines of celebratory and festive spirit of Ganpati Chaturthi. Certainly great numbers to listen to. Waiting for the videos now, so that these songs can find a mention in Bollywoodlife's weekly Trending Tunes.
There were also reports that Priyanka's mother, Madhu Chopra, was going to make her acting debut in the Marathi film with a cameo. Though it turned out to be a mere rumour later, as sources close to the Chopra family debunked the news.
There are also rumours floating that PeeCee will be crooning a song for her production venture. A source close to the film revealed this to popular daily, Mumbai Mirror. He said, “Priyanka is looking forward to recording the song, however, she is yet to zero down on the track she will sing. It is most likely to be used as a promotional track but could be included in the narrative too. She’s currently working out dates for the recording as well as the rehearsals." Though the two songs that have been released are missing Priyanka as a singer, we are looking forward for the release of other songs. Fingers crossed, that this comes out to be true. Priyanka has proved her mettle as a singer in the West. She has released single like Exotic ft. Pitbull and In My City, that were loved by everyone.
Priyanka production house Purple Pebble Pictures (PPP) has a slate of three films -- one each in Bhojpuri, Marathi and Punjabi -- which will release this year. Bam Bam Bol Raha Hai Kashi (Bhojpuri), Ventilator (Marathi) and Ek Onkar (Punjabi) are the titles out of which the first has been released and received good response. Bam Bam Bol Raha Hai Kashi also courted controversy when many, including actress Neetu Chandra, raised objections that PeeCee's film is fixating on Bhojpuri cinema stereotypes.
"Today, entertainment has a wide canvas which is not restricted by language or medium. At Purple Pebble Pictures, we are aspiring to erase boundaries and create an environment where the content/story is the hero," Priyanka, founder, talent samurai and chief troublemaker at PPP, said in a statement earlier, around the release of B3RHK.
Written and directed by Santosh Mishra, Bam Bam Bol Raha Hai Kashi was a love story which featured Nirahau and Amrapali Dubey; and Ek Onkar, written by Ambardeep Singh and directed by Karan Guliani, is a coming-of-age story of a young NRI returning to find his roots.
