Pratik Gandhi’s impeccable performance in Scam 1992 gained him a huge fan following. With that being said, looks like we will soon get to see him back in action again as he is all set to entertain the audience in a never-seen-before avatar in his forthcoming musical love drama, Bhavai.
Bhavai helmed by director Hardik Gajjar will be presented by Dr. Jayantilal Gada (Pen Studios), produced by Dhaval Jayantilal Gada, Aksshay Jayantilal Gada, Parth Gajjar, and Hardik Gajjar films in association with Backbencher Pictures. The film which is set in `1982 in a rural village in Gujarat will showcase the personal life of two artists who work for Ram Leela drama company- a local boy Raja Ram Joshi (Pratik Gandhi) and Rani (Aindrita Ray). The film will star Rajendra Gupta, Rajesh Sharma, and Abhimanyu Singh in pivotal roles.
On asking the actor why he chose this script, Pratik said-
This was before scam 1992 in 2018, when I first heard the narration, I was clear and convinced that I want to do this movie. I told Hardik now you decide if you want me for this character because at that time, apart from the Gujarati movie I hadn’t explored anything else. Also making a movie in Hindi and releasing it both are different factors as it holds various variables, and moreover launching a fresh face is also challenging, hence I had left it on the director Hardik Gajjar to decide.
Sharing his excitement about coming on the big screen, he adds-
I am very excited, Bhavai will always stay close to my heart, because for many reasons, firstly, BHAVAI is my first Bollywood film as the lead protagonist, this in itself is very huge for any actor. The second reason is the love that was showered on me through Scam, there are set of audience now hoping to see me in a different role so I want to showcase them something that is different and they will enjoy.
I am super excited to watch this film, can’t wait to see Pratik Gandhi back in action on 1st October 2021.
