Abhishek Bachchan plays a Naxalite leader in ‘Raavana’!
We all know that Abhishek Bachchan plays a negative role in the movie Raavana and his character has shades of one of the greatest mythological villain, Ravan, but the new buzz is that the main inspiration for his role came from the infamous Maoist leader Kobad Ghandy.
As the talented director and a master storyteller Mani Ratnam has a knack for recreating the burning issues of the day in his movies (Roja, Dil Se), he has again tried to do something similar in Raavan. In fact, according to a daily, Mani has even a set of researchers to find out facts about Kobad Ghandy.
As a source tells a daily, “In Raavana, Abhishek plays Veera, a naxalite leader of the downtrodden villagers in eastern Madhya Pradesh. Just like Ghandy’s Communist party India-Maoist is banned, Abhishek’s organisation is also banned in the film.”
Till now, never has a mainstream film touched the issue of naxalism. Mani will try to show it through his version of Ramayana.
The movie is set to hit the theatres on June 18.
