Bollywood villain's daughter makes directorial debut

Mumbai: Bollywood villain, Sadashiv Amrapurkar's daughter Reema Amrapurkar is all set with her Marathi directorial debut titled Arara Ara Aaba Atta Tari Thamba.

Literally translated, this means, 'Oh brother hold on for a bit!' In the film Sadashiv Amrapurkar's character has shades of Maharashtra's Deputy Chief Minister -- R R Patil.

"It is not R R Patil in specific. It's simply a commentary on the policies undertaken by him and how it affects the people at the grassroot. It's about how people handle the issues they are faced with," Reema Amrapurkar is quick to clarify.

However, the similarities are uncanny. Sadashiv Amrapurkar is called 'Abba' in the film - the same name with which R R Patil is addressed usually. However, the filmmakers claim that the connection between the two is media driven.

Says Sadashiv Amrapurkar, "The film's title got publicity and it is really the media which has created an impression that the film is based on R R Patil."

Despite the controversial character in the film, Reema Amrapurkar has a special message for the Deputy Chief Minister.

"Please watch the film. It's entertaining, and don't worry there is not much about you," says she with a smile.

So get set to see some politically incorrect comic entertainment.
