In our day today life we come across someone or the other who inspire us to take up some things seriously - they can be any one who meets us on our way to office, school, college or anywhere. In a similar instance our Khiladi took up the task to learn his Mumbai chi bhaasha - Marathi.
Recalling an incident Akshay Kumar revealed in an interview, "During a bus journey, the conductor told me to move ahead in Marathi, a language I didn't know at the time. I stood there and it annoyed him. That's when I decided to learn the language. I think it's very important to know the language of the place you consider home."
After taking the nation by a storm with their first production, 'OMG Oh My God', Grazing Goat Pictures co-producers Akshay Kumar and Ashvini Yardi have forayed into regional cinema with a Marathi film called '72 Miles - Ek Pravas' which is based on Ashok Vatkar's autobiography.
Stated Ashvini, "I always wanted to make a good Marathi film for my grandfather (who was one of V Shantaram's partners in Prabhat Film Company in the 1920s) and father."
Besides this, there's also a plan to make a sequel to 'OMG! Oh My God' starring Paresh Rawal. On making a sequel to OMG, Akki said, "We had a wonderful time making the film and would like to take our association further. Kanjibhai as a character has become iconic and there is more scope to get him to fight more issues."
When asked whether he is also planning a film in his mother tongue (Punjabi), the actor-producer added, "Yes, we are. While the first Marathi film is nearing completion, the Punjabi film is still being scripted. So you'll hear about it in good time too. We will soon be getting into Bengali and south markets as well."
After hitting the bull's-eye with 'OMG Oh My God', we are sure Grazing Goat Pictures will recreate history with their second venture.
