Maradonna in PANKH
Sanjay Gupta's much in news PANKH is a story of a young boy who was forced by her mother to act as a girl in the film industry. It's a very touching story and it's a break away from a normal commercial film. All the actors have put in a lot of effort for the movie.
Especially newcomer Maradonna, who plays the lead protagonist in the movie; it's his debut movie and in his very first movie only Maradonna has bared it all on the screen.
Sources say that ''The scene where Maradonna strips it off was a very important one and if they removed the scene, then it wouldn't have had the same effect as it will have now.''
Sanjay Gupta and director Sudipto Chattopadhyaya have gone away from the regular Bollywood masala and made a very bold and realistic movie. Before the shoot started Maradonna was introduced to World Cinema. In world cinema it's very common where the protagonist had to bear it all for his role. So when Maradonna had to shoot the scene in front of the whole unit, it was little difficult but he managed to act it out very well. The exposure to world Cinema helped him a great deal, and the comfort level which he had built with the entire crew helped him act out the scene very well.
