Maan Singh plays himselfThe dreaded dacoit, who was Phoolan Devi’s third husband, will soon be seen on the big screen. Maan Singh, who was played by Manoj Bajpayee in Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen, will play himself in Krishna Mishra’s next, Beehard.
When contacted, Mishra told us, “During my research, I met Maan Singh. He not only helped with the information but also helped me meet Nirbhay. When he found out that we are making a film, he showed interest in acting.
We offered him to play himself. Even though, he has a small role in the film, he was very eager to get on-board.”
The film is based on the lives of the dreaded dacoits Nirbhay Gujjar and Kusuma Nain. Nirbhay was shot dead in 2005. Kusuma is under trial for 198 criminal cases filed against her and is currently in Orai jail in Uttar Pradesh. She has already been sentenced to death for two of the cases.
Beehard is slated to release by the end of this year or early next.
