When the Marathi film Duniyadari was released in Maharashtra in July 2013, it was in competition with Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Ship Of Theseus and D-Day. But the 98% of the film’s collections showed how much audiences loved Swapnil Joshi, who started his career as a child artist playing the role of Kush in Uttar Ramayan and went on to play young Krishna in the series. television of the same name. .
Swapnil, who recently completed 30 years in the industry, ventured into the horror genre with a Marathi film titled Bali. It was headed by the famous Chhorii Vishal Furia. While the actor was a little worried about how his fans, who love him in funny and romantic roles, would enjoy the film, he believes the PG 13 rating will be a godsend.
“My fans will be happy to be able to watch the film with their families. The film has a lot of positive moments. It is the story of hope and life. Honestly, nothing fascinates an actor more than a fear of the unknown. That’s why I’ve been here for three decades, surviving and relevant despite this long career. It was a brilliant two-year period going through storytelling, workshops, reading then prosthetics and testing after the background music. It was a brilliant experience and never felt or seen. I can’t wait to see the reaction from my Marathi audience – who love original stories and love watching good progressive movies, ”Swapnil shares.
Swapnil had a hell of a trip, and the actor is grateful for it. “Bali is like coming full circle. It’s great to experience both yin and yang at the same time. If you take a small child to an adventure park, he will depend on his parents. My parents are my writers and directors who will take care of me. I come from a theatrical background where parents are producers, writers and directors. It doesn’t really matter how tall a star or hero is. You need the creators to take care of you and you need to follow their vision, ”explains Swapnil.
When Vishal approached Swapnil with the concept of his horror Marathi after doing a classic Lapachhapi, Swapnil had no idea what Vishal wanted him to do. “I thought he wanted me to produce it. I am very afraid of the horror. I don’t watch horror movies. But Vishal told me that making horror movies isn’t scary. What Vishal has beautifully crafted is a story of human values and relationships and a father-son story. It moved me a lot about what a father will do to protect a child’s life. The concept is universally appealing, ”says Swapnil.
He was coerced by the director to watch his previous horror film. “It took me three days and 72 hours to watch a 90 minute movie. I would keep all the lights on and watch for about 15 minutes at a time. But i loved it Lapachhapi and what worked is that it’s not a random ghost. Bali will take the horror up a notch, ”concludes Swapnil.
