Paresh Rawal’s popular Gujarati play Maharathi, which is a comic thriller, was first staged in 1987 and had seen more than 700 stage performances.
This play has now been made into a film by the same title. The star cast includes Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri, Boman Irani, Neha Dhupia and Tara Sharma.
Shivam Nair, who earlier made Ahista Ahista, has directed Maharathi. This film is scheduled for release on December 5.
