Two of the most popular Bollywood actors of their time, Amol Palekar and Sharmila Tagore, are all set to fascinate hearts with their forthcoming film.
Samaantar Marathi film, will see veterans Amol Palekar and Sharmila Tagore teaming up after a gap of 30 years in an intense story, which is a tale of two parallel lives crossing each other in the twilight of life.
Palekar believes that the film will transcend the language barrier and will go down well with the audience.
“Any film, any good film has it's roots in the language, in the soil, in the culture, everything. And yet, it transcends, it goes beyond. And that's what I think, I have my full faith about Samaantar also,” said Palekar.
The film revolves around businessman Keshav Vaze, played by Amol Palekar who decides to find serenity from his extremely busy schedule on his 60th birthday.
A casual glimpse of Shama, his love interest, played by Tagore jolts him, and how the relationship progresses when they find each other after a gap of 30 years, forms the storyline.
Describing her character as challenging, Sharmila Tagore said: “It's a very quiet, reclusive character and the character grows on you. I mean I will make a mess of it if I try and tell you about the character, I think I can act it better than I can say it. So, you have to see it.”
“Well, it's very quiet, very confident and a very introspective person, not very outwardly demonstrative person. It had its challenges. Its mostly in the expressions and the eyes,” she added.
Samaantar is set to release on September 4.
