Munna Bhai M.B.B.S actor Surendra Rajan bids adieu to the industry with his last film ‘Who Am I’
Helmed by 22-year-old director Shireesh Khemariya and produced by Shirish Prakash, the story is set in a small town on the banks of river Narmada which also features Panchayat actor Shashie Vermaa, Pagglait fame Chetan Sharma and debutante actress Rishika Chandani.
Talking about what prompted him to take up the role he says, “I’m playing a character of Narmada Parikrama Wasi, a person who is spending his old age time on the banks of river Narmada. At this age, it was like enlightenment to play such a character hence I gave it a nod. I left the film industry and started living in Himachal but the concept struck a chord in my heart so I decided to do the role and gave my all.”
Sharing his working experience he tells, “I was very much impressed by the title as its a very quintessential question we ask ourselves I.e Who Am I. I was in love with the script. I was very skeptical working at this age but when I saw this young crew showing so much of enthusiasm so I felt it becomes my duty to encourage them and support them. When they approached me, felt really good because its a very untouched subject.”
This film seeks to address all of the questions by showing how the main character Bhavitva goes on a journey of self-discovery and realizes his answers. The story will leave the audience with a new perspective on life.
