The first trailer of Shreyas Talpade’s next, Wah Taj was unveiled on Wednesday evening and is already winning hearts.
Directed by Ajit Sinha, Wah Taj traces the story of a Maharashtrian farmer who claims he owns the land where Taj Mahal is built! Shreyas plays the farmer while Manjari Fadnis is his wife in the movie that is slated to release on September 23.
The premise reminds us of Abhishek Bachchan-Rani Mukherjee’s Bunty Aur Bubli where the duo tried selling Taj Mahal in one of their duping acts. The rustic flavour of the video makes us hope that Shreyas is back with something similar to what we saw in his brilliant satire Welcome to Sajjanpur (2008).
Actor Shreyas Talpade said that as an, actor he never likes to interfere in director’s work. “I do not interfere in the director or producer’s work and try to stick to my acting when I am working as an actor. I guess if I am able to do that properly, it’s a huge achievement for me,” he said at the trailer launch.
Speaking about the film, the Iqbal actor said, “The subject is quite unique. When the director (Ajit Sinha) came to meet me, I asked him for one line. He told me that this is a story of a farmer who claims that the land on which Taj Mahal was built is his land. The one line surprised me, thus got interested in the rest of the story. That is the USP of the film. The story seems to be appealing.”
Recently, the film was caught in a legal hassle due to publicity gimmick done as part of the film promotion where makers distributed posters stating, the Taj Mahal will be shut for tourists from September 23, the release date of the film. Shreyas said they are apologetic as the controversy was never the intention. ”It is necessary to give time to make a good film. I feel each film has its own destiny. So it’s OK, as certain things are bound to happen in certain time and this is the time for Wah Taj,” he said.
