Sudhakar Bokade readies Kalinga for release
Almost 7 years have passed with no news of Dilip Kumar-Rekha starrer ‘Kalinga’ which was being produced by Sudhakar Bokade.
But then Sudhakar entered a rough phase when due to a skirmish with Dilip Kumar and later when the films budget went overboard due to delay in its release. The financial mess Sudhakar went through was so bad that he spent the next seven years of his life sorting them out.
But now worst is over and Sudhakar has reinvented himself. Sudhakar Bokade is all set to bounce back with not one but three films, being directed by Parto Ghosh, Kundan Shah’s chief assistant, Chinmai and Karan Razdan. In fact Bokade has already wrapped up the shooting of the film with Parto Ghosh, titled WHY… KYON, which stars Sanjay Kapoor, Jatin Grewal and Sanjay Singh in the lead. “It is a fast paced suspense thriller and has shaped up very well,” Bokade informs, adding that the cast for the other two films is currently under consideration.
In addition Bokade is also looking at the release of his three long-awaited productions, the Saif Ali Khan starrer, YEH PYAR HI TO HAI (earlier titled SAMBANDH), KALINGA and KANYADAAN, which had been held back due to financial and distribution problems. “I have already worked out on a distribution network for the three films. In fact, YEH PYAR HI TO HAI has got a very encouraging response in the distribution market what with Saif being hot in the market,” Bokade says.
