After having tasted enormous success with his first film as co-producer (OMG Oh My God), actor Akshay Kumar is all set with his next – a Marathi film – which will be released under the banner of Grazing Goat Pictures, his production house with Ashwini Yardi.
Called 72 MILES – Ek Pravas, the film is all set to release on 26th July 2013.
Says Akshay in a media statement, “72 MILES marks our first regional film. Marathi isn’t my first language but living in Mumbai I picked up the language very quickly and immersed myself in the culture. I’ve seen some really interesting Marathi projects and love the cinema. I am personally touched by the story of 72 MILES.”
Synopsis: A hard-hitting, poignant tale of a young boy who makes his journey into self-actualization against the backdrop of a rustic India, 72 MILES: EK PRAVAS explores a beautiful, coming of age journey for the 13 year old boy Ashok and the companionable relationships he makes through his journey. This film aims to transport the audiences into post-independence India as experienced by the protagonist Ashok.
