Bhubaneswar, 06th June 2016: The fans of Anubhav and Ollywood are in for another romantic-action movie “Agastya” under the banner of Akshya Parija Production due for release. The movie is hitting the market as a pre-Raja present to the Ollywood movie-buffs.
Apart from Anubhav, Akash Dasnayak will be seen in a grave yet interesting avatar. Bong beauty Jhilik Bhattacharjee and industry veterans Mihir Das, Priyanka Patnaik, Minaketan, Manoj Mishra, Munna Sethi, Salil Mitra have also given screen stealing acts. Directed by K. Muralikrishna, the film’s lyrics are by Arun Mantry and Subrat Swain. Prem Anand has composed the music with few tracks sung by Anannya Sritam Nanda of Indian Idol Junior fame.
In an exclusive interview with OdishaLIVE correspondent, Mr. Akshya Parija revealed, “Agastya was a Saptarishi, a revered Vedic sage who got annoyed whenever any injustice took place. The protagonist, Anubhav, is portrayed as a good person and he raises his voice only when injustice is done.”
Also taking about the cast and crew, he said, “Veteran actor Mihir Das will be coming up in a very different role. Even Akash Dasnayak would be introduced in a whole new characterization. Experimentation is a part of film making. Actors should not be what they always had been.”
The movie was inspired from ‘Ugramm’, a Kannada film, which has been a blockbuster back in the south. Now it’s worth mentioning here that Ollywood is not the only industry that’s up for this film’s remake. South Superstar Dhanush, who also happens to have Bollywood superhits to his name, has expressed his desire to become Agastya not only in the Tamil version but also in Hindi. But Salman Khan might be in the Hindi remake is also a buzz around B-town.
