Mumbai: Actress Alia Bhatt says that she is very impressed with the stories of Lord Hanuman. Many serials and cartoons have been made differently on the god’s stories, but no full-length feature film has been made on Lord Hanuman yet, Alia observes.
Alia believes that Lord Hanuman’s story is so interesting one film cannot do justice to it, but a series of films can be made.
Alia further says, “I have been thinking about Lord Hanuman’s story for a long time. His story should come before the people differently. There are many stories on Hanuman ji; many cartoons and TV serials have also been made, but a film should be made about Hanumanji too.”
Alia adds, “Hanumanji’s story is very long; so it should be made into a series of films. It will be a mind-blowing film. I often think that no one has written the story of Hanumanji for a film so far.”
During a promotional interview of Kalank, Alia said she definitely knew what kind of films to work in, but it does not know what kind of issues to choose from. So far, “I have not thought along the lines of choosing a film based on its subject. Sometimes it happens that a subject is revealed and it seems this story should be shown to everyone,” she said.
Apart from Alia, Abhijit Bhatt’s film Kalank features Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Kunal Khemu and Sanjay Dutt playing the lead characters.
On the backdrop of 1940, period drama Kalank has been directed by Abhishek Barman. The film will be released in theatres across the country on 17 April.
Karan Johar is the producer of this film. This is the same film in which actress Sridevi was ready to play a role before she met with an accidental death. Madhuri was later signed in for the same role.
