After the success of the Marathi film Sairat, the interest in Marathi cinema is all an all-time high. And joining the bangwagon is Nil Battey Sannata director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari. The lady is set to make a thriller and a woman-centric film in the language. Ashwiny plans to turn producer and has set up a company with Sanjay Shetty called Earth Sky Pictures.
“I am a great fan of Marathi cinema. I wanted to make Nil Battey Sannata in Marathi. There is a growing number of audience ready to watch Marathi films apart from the Marathi speaking public,” said Ashwiny.
“We have two scripts in place, one is a thriller and another is a woman oriented story,” she said.
The makers are working on getting the right actors and directors on board for both the projects.
“For the woman oriented story we have approached Radhika Apte. We will soon take a decision on casting,” Ashwiny said.
Both the films are likely to go on floors this year.
Besides these two Marathi films, Ashwiny will be directing Ayushmann Khurrana-Bhoomi Pednekar starrer Manmarziyan. Some portions of Manmarziyan were shot by director Sameer Sharma. But apparently due to creative differences with the producer, Sharma is no more directing the film.
Manmarziyan is an upcoming romantic film produced by Anand L Rai.
