Garnering good wishes of some of the most influential personages in Bollywood, including Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan, Vikram Phadnis’ Hrudayantar has risen above expectations of the audiences and the critics with its unbelievable success at the box office in just a week.
With brilliant performances by Mukta Barve, Subodh Bhave and Sonali Khare, the film has set a new benchmark in the Marathi cinema scene. The cast and crew of the film were ecstatic once they got to know that the emotional drama will be premiering at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (2017) in August and once they got to know about another international selection, their joy was boundless.
The debut filmmaker decided to surprise his team with an eventful declaration. The news of the film being officially selected at the Vancouver International South Asian Film Festival was met with a shock and excitement.
At the thought of representing Indian cinema at foreign film festivals with two international selections, Vikram says, “I’m overwhelmed with response Hrudayantar has received. It has been officially selected at the Melbourne film festival and now at the 7th Edition of the Vancouver International South Asian Film Festival. I don’t know whether I was prepared for this. I knew Hrudayantar had touched a chord in people’s life and it would be well accepted.”
“The entire team including Subodh Bhave, Mukta Barve, Sonali Khare, Amit Khedekar, my two little girls, my music director, everybody is shocked with the kind of response the film is garnering and the kind of appreciation people have given it. I feel Hrudayantar is blessed to receive two film festival selections in the first week of its release,” adds Vikram.
A Young Berry Entertainment, Imtiaz Khatri and Vikram Phadnis Productions in association with Toabh Entertainment, Hrudayantar is an emotional drama featuring popular Marathi actors including Subodh Bhave, Mukta Barve and Sonali Khare. The film released on the 7th of July, 2017.
