After being the cinematographer for Bollywood biggies to name a few like BLUE, ENGLISH VINGLISH, BOSS, LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL and upcoming film TEVAR - Laxman Utekar has added another feather to his cap as he turns director for Marathi film, TAPAAL.


Talking about his journey of becoming a director, he says, “I used to get a lot of offers to shoot Marathi films, but I didn’t want to shoot them. I always felt that if I shoot a Marathi film, it will also be directed by me. I didn’t want to shoot for somebody else. Because I was already shooting for people in Hindi films.”

He further adds, “After completing Mangesh Hadawale’s DEKH INDIAN CIRCUS, I narrated a thought to him about the culture and people of my own village. I asked him whether he could weave a story for me and he did that beautifully. The film is the result of our experiences.”

Ask him whether he always wanted to become a director and he says, “I always wanted to make a film but I wasn’t in a hurry. When I was shooting for others, I couldn’t narrate my own experiences. So to express the same I took up direction.” 

Produced by Maitreya Mass Media and distributed by Pickle Entertainment, starring the likes of Milind Gunaji, Nandu Madhav, Veena Jamkar, Urmila Kanetkar and introducing Rohit Utekar, TAPAAL is all set to release on 26th September 2014.
