Ganesh Acharya has choosen Manoj Bajpai to play the male lead in his directional debut film ‘Swami’. Juhi Chawla is paired opposite Manoj. The director has considerd the two for a unique pairing.
Juhi Chawla is at that stage of her career where she can comfortably experiment with her roles in each movie of hers. Her recent releases SALAAM-E-ISHQ and BAS EK PAL saw her playing different characters and the same is expected from her upcoming film SWAMI. The film is unusual for number of reasons with most prominent being the pairing, which sees Juhi opposite Manoj Bajpai. While Juhi started her big screen career more than two decades back, Manoj Bajpai made his mark with SATYA around a decade back though he was noticed in BANDIT QUEEN too.
With SWAMI, choreographer turned film director Ganesh Acharya has considered the two for a unique pairing in his debut film and is now looking forward to the film’s release.
Though the storyline of the film is currently being kept under the wraps, whispers within the industry indicate that Ganesh has shed his flamboyance as witnessed in his dance moves and has instead focused on subtle narrative centered on human emotions.
SWAMI is expected to arrive on June 8, a week before JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM.
