In an exclusive interview with Nagpur Today the cast and crew of the “Premasathi Coming Suun” Heroine Neha Pendse, Hero Jitendra Joshi, Director Ankur Kakatkar and one of the Producers Anup Kumar Poddar, said when they visited the office of Nagpur Today that for once, the right actors, actress, director, producer all have come together. While praising the producers, Anup Kumar Poddar, Aman Vidhate, Sanjay Sankla and Mulchand Dedhia, Director Ankur Kakatkar said that thanks to Almighty God, the producers ensured that no compromise was made in anything that he wanted or the story/filming demanded. So much so that every jewellery worn by heroine Neha Pendse is real gold having diamond inlays. All the sarees are designer sarees and specially made for the movie. He added that wish every Marathi Movie Director gets this kind of Producers.
While replying to a query on the type of story, he said that the movie has Drama, Romance and Comedy. The Director Ankur added that he simply enjoyed directing the movie. Everything worked with clockwise precision.
While answering to a question on why Marathi movies don’t do so well in tier two cities while they do so well in cities like Kolhapur, Pune, Mumbai etc. Is it because of the poor publicity or that the producers don’t have budget to promote the movie in cities like Nagpur, reputed Marathi Actor Jitendra Joshi claimed that to some extent, it may be true. However, while many Marathi movies are really well made and has a good story or message to convey, it does not do well in cities like Nagpur because, people don’t go to watch the movies in theatres anymore. He added that most Marathi speaking populace also understands Hindi so they prefer to watch a Hindi movie.
He claimed that on many occasion, producers don’t even get back the money that they have invested in the movies. In order to ensure a good audience, the Producers have booked seven cinema halls where the movie will be screened in Nagpur.
Director Ankur claimed that the movie was shot in Mud Island and Film City Mumbai and Rajguru Nagar in Pune. The shooting began on June 19, 2014 and finished on July 9, 2014. They had 60 days of outdoor shooting while 40 days of indoor shooting.
While speaking to Nagpur Today, Heroine of the movie Neha Pendse claimed that the movie does not give any specific revolutionary message. It is sheer fun-filled movie that has Drama, Comedy and Romance. She narrated the story, claiming that
