Aamir Khan's Peepli Live to open on 13 August 2010
12-Jul-2010 / ( Entertainment - Previous | Next | Last )

Peepli Live - the latest film to be produced by Amir Khan is scheduled to open to audiences in India on 13 August 2010. The movie is already causing furores in the political cirlces with one of its song "Mahangaai Daayan (महंगाई डायन)" on price rise and inflation.

This film is directed and written by Anusha Rizvi who says that she never intended to make files, before the story of Peepli Live came to her in a flash.

Peepli Live is a story of a poor farmer from Peepli village in rural India who is about to lose his land due to an unpaid government loan. A quick fix to the problem is the very same government’s program that aids the families of indebted farmers who have committed suicide.

Talking about his interest in the script, Aamir Khan says "From the time that the narration began I was drawn into it. I found it to be very funny and at the same time very heartbreaking. Very engaging, entertaining and enlightening, but a very unusual script for Indian cinema. In other words, it was right up my street." Aamir Khan adds "This is the first of the films that I have produced with the hope of entertaining a world audience. It’s a world that I am unfamiliar with... and scary. Let’s see how it goes."

Out of the cast of the film probably the only noted name is Raghubir Yadav. Most of the cast of Peepli Live was selected after an extensive and exhaustive casting process that lasted over 4 months. About 900 actors were auditioned in several cities in India. In the event, legendary Indian theatre director Habib Tanvir’s Naya Theatre repertory which comprises mainly rural folk actors provided the mainstay.
