Music composer Saleel Kulkarni is now turning director with the Marathi film Wedding Cha Shinema, for which he has also written the story, screenplay and dialogues.
Produced by Gheru and PESB and presented by Everest Entertainment, the film stars well-known names like Mukta Barve, Bhau Kadam, Shivaji Satam, Alka Kubal, Sunil Barve, Ashwini Kalsekar and Pravin Tarde.
The title teaser of the film was released recently and gives us the idea that Wedding Cha Shinema is a family drama that revolves around a marriage. The song, ‘Majhya Mamachya Lagnala’, indicates that music plays a big role in the film. Kulkarni, after all, is a composer himself.
Kulkarni has composed the musical score for a number of Marathi and a few Hindi films like Pandhar (2004), Tula Shikvin Changlach Dhada (2007), Nishani Dava Angatha (2009), Haapus (2010), Chhodo Kal Ki Baatein (2012, Hindi), Mitraa (2017), Bandya Ani Baby (2018) and Monkey Baat (2018), not to mention some television series too.
Mukta Barve, meanwhile, comes fresh off another successful family-orientated Marathi film in Mumbai-Pune-Mumbai 3 (2018), the third in the franchise where she is paired opposite Swapnil Joshi. She also got a lot of critical appreciation for her role in Aamhi Doghi (2018).
Wedding Cha Shinema will be released on 12 April.
