Mahesh Bhatt Plays the Father in Movie Siddhartha
Actress Shazahn Padamsee, who is a part of movie Siddhartha, says the veteran film producer-director Mahesh Bhatt is going to play the role of her father in the upcoming movie.
“It was really a great experience to work with such a talented person in a movie”, says Shazahn in an interview. “When I was narrated the story, I just fell in love with the script. It’s really great to be part of this distinct movie”, the young actress says. She further adds, “My role in the film is set in Manali city and veteran filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt is my on-screen father”.
Mukul Mishra has directed the film Siddhartha. Veteran film producer and director Mahesh Bhatt is playing the role of a bald Buddhist monk in the movie. On the other hand, Shazahn’s character in the film is called Nidhi, who is a practicing Buddhist, and resides in Manali. The character of Nidhi, which is played by Shazahn works as guardian angel or spiritual guide to the protagonist in the movie.
As everyone knows that there was a time when Mahesh Bhatt used to be disciple of Indian Guru Osho or Bhagwan Rajneesh. He used to do household tasks in the Osho commune in US. When Rajneesh was expelled from the US, Bhatt also came back to India.
Since Bhatt has personal experience regarding the spiritual journey, he is likely to impress the audience. However, we have seen lots of block buster movies, directed the Mahesh Bhatt, but this is the first time when we would get a chance to see this distinct directory playing a distinct role.
