Mere Dost, Picture Abhi Baki Hai is a satire on the film industry which showcases the struggle of a film-maker before he brings his film on to the marquee. Produced by Narendra Singh and directed by Rajnish Raj Thakur, the recent music launch of the film saw the cast in full attendance supported by members of film fraternity.
Playing the gracious hosts were Narendra Singh and Arshad Siddiqui who ensured that the stars of the film Sunil Shetty, Shayan Munshi, Rakesh Bedi, Razzak Khan, along with director Rajnish Raj Thakur, Amitabh Dayal, director Ashuu Trikha, composers Rajendra Shiv and Aprvez and Sufi singer Mudasir Ali had a good time. Of course, the cynosure of all eyes was Sunil Shetty whose efforts have seen the film getting its due.
Mere Dost, Picture Abhi Baki Hai, sees the journey of Amar Joshi (Sunil Shetty) who runs a video library in Benaras and aspires to be a filmmaker. Despite facing objection from his father, Amar Joshi decides to sell his video library and join a film institute in London.
After completing his course he lands in the city of dreams “Mumbai” to make his film. Suraj (Rajpal Yadav) is a struggling actor doing bit roles in T.V. serials, who is Amar’s only connection in Bollywood. Amar Joshi starts his struggle to make his film by meeting different types of producers who have their own take on Amar’s story. After many failed attempts he finally bumps into Monty Chadda (Rakesh Bedi), a publicist who sees potential in Amar and decides to produce his film.
Amar and Monty take help of star secretary Guptaji (Akhil Mishra) to convince Mohini (Udita Goswami) and her starry mother Mummyji (Neena Gupta) who agrees to do the film.
Amar’s film starts, but is stalled all of a sudden when Monty suddenly disappears. Amar is summoned by Sudama Bhosle (Deepak Shirke) a don who was financing his film. He wants Amar to complete his film and also wants him to cast his girlfriend Tina (Mumait Khan). Amar reluctantly agrees as he has no option. A turn of events later, Amar sees the remaining portions of his story being rewritten by Mr Baig whom he cannot get rid of. Will the audiences accept the changes made to a true story to make it commercial? This forms the crux of the movie.
The film is slated for a July 20th 2012 release.
