Recently, Eternal Films and Director Atul Garg announced to the media the historical “You know..Amrapaali”, a film on the life of Amrapaali at a posh hotel of Mumbai. This remake of Vyajantimala’s film (1966) showcases “Amrapaali” as the woman of substance who is immortalized on the marquee yet again.
The inauguration of this upcoming film started with the traditional coconut breaking ceremony for good luck followed by a number of classical music performances by Pt. Harsh (Grandson of Pt. Ram Narayan) and Saurabh Sharma. Soon, director Atul K Garg lit a lamp with the lead actress Vimala Raman who will be playing “Amrapaali” in the film. This glittery launch witnessed stars like yesteryears actress/dancer Jayashree Talpade, actress Nargis Bagheri, model Aryan Vaid with Alexandria, famous Pakistani pop singer Najam Sheraz, debutant Haarsh Nagar starring in Red Chillies forthcoming film, TV actors Abhay Bhargav and Natasha.
“Amrapaali may have been represented on the silver screen and the stage, but I would like people to know her as the real woman that she was. A beautiful, free-spirited girl, who grew up to be a great danseuse, Amrapaali had everything but yet had a void in her life. She finally left everything to become a monk and found answers to the questions of life at Buddha’s lotus feet – that is Amrapaali”, elaborates Atul Garg who spent over five years researching ancient texts and volumes on Buddha’s life and the subject of Amrapaali was something that intrigued him.
Vimala Raman who is a reputed actress of South Indian film industry said, “I couldn’t be happier to be a part of this epic film. Dance has been my passion and acting is in my blood and this legendary role of Amrapaali is indeed a dream come true not just for me but any actress.”
The starry night finally ended with the late arrival of the chief guest Ramesh Bagwe (State Home Minister, Gov of Maharashtra) and a scrumptious dinner.
The rest of the casting is in various stages of finalization and the shooting of the film will be in Jodhpur and Hyderabad from July. The film is slated for a December-January release.
