Now, the makers of the movie have released the first trailer of Ek Albela. And making a special appearance as Geeta Bali is Vidya Balan. The film explores the cinema era between 1930 and 1951.
Ek Albela revolves around the great actor and dancing superstar of Indian cinema, Bhagwan Dada or Master Bhagwan. Watch the trailer right here to believe what I am saying:
The film is directed Shekhar Sartandel, who assisted on Vaastav, and is set to release this year.
For the present generation unaware about Bhagwan, he was an actor and film director best known for his social film Albela way back in 1951 and the superhit song Shola Jo Bhadke.
But post Albela, he wasn’t able to spin any magic. He eventually had to give up producing and directing films, sell his 25 room sea facing bungalow in Juhu and his fleet of seven cars purportedly used as one for every day of the week).
Most of Bhagwan’s associates left him in his time of need, apart from C. Ramchandra, Om Prakash and lyricist Rajinder Krishan, who continued to meet him even in his chawl. Bhagwan died of a massive heart attack at his residence in Dadar in 2002 at age 89.
