Upcoming movie, Muavza, about neo-rich people in the capital, will have scenes depicting mythological tale of Ramayan and actor Annu Kapoor has written those scenes.

It all happened after the actor's recent visit to the capital. He quizzed people about their intention behind watching Ramleela during Dusshera time. "Everyone unanimously said, devotion. And I felt that even if there is humour in the festival, it should be due to emotion and overwhelming feeling of being there in Ramleela, instead of there being a fun element in the festivities itself," Annu said in a statement.

"I reworked the scenes to make them serious in terms of devotion. The underlying humour is there in the way the characters get emotional," added the National Award-winning actor who will be seen playing lead role in, Muavza.

The film is being produced by Jagdish P. Gupta and directed by Girish Juneja.
