Our company makes films with a specific motto, says Mahesh Pandey

Mahesh Pandey

Mahesh Pandey is the most talked about star filmmaker of Bhojpuri films. From the audiences point of view his first film GHARDWAR was given the status of an entertaining film. While his other two films HUM BAL BRAMACHARI TU KANYA KUNWARI and GABBAR SINGH were considered as experimental films of Bhojpuri arena by the critics as well as the cine goers. And now Mahesh Pandey is making two films JODILAAGE JIE KAMAAL and LAAL LUGGA under the guidance of producer Mukesh Pandey and under the banner of his newly formed film company Shree Siddhi Vinayak Media Entertainment. So if JODI LAAGE RE KAMAAL features the Bhojpuri's star actor Pawan Singh, then in LAAL LUGGA viewers will see the magic of Bhojpuri's super star Manoj Tiwari. COMPLETE CINEMA had a Brief Chat with an excited and over enthusiastic Mahesh Pandey.

It is being said that you are the star filmmaker of Bhojpuri Cinema whose films prove that Bhojpuri films need lot of changes. Right?

No sir I will not take any more steps in the direction of experimental films. Now I will make films only with the motto of providing clean and healthy entertaining films for cine goers.

What is the use of doing such experimental films which proves to be a total loss in every which way? 1 believe that it is better to be progressive but at the same time we should also save our energy. You know what I mean don't you?

It is being said about your film LAAL LUGGA that such a horror film has never been attempted in Bhojpuri films till this date. Is it true?

Yes it is true. It LAAL LUGGA is the true story of an incident which had taken place in a village. Cine goers will definitely love watching this film. Even the producer Mukesh Pandey and the director Manjul Thakur are very excited about this film.

Your company Shree Siddhi Vinayak Entertainment is making its first film with Bhojpuri super star Manoj Tiwari. How excited are you?

We are very excited. To be very frank just like every Hindi filmmaker has a dream of making a film with Amitabh Bachchan in the same way every Bhojpuri filmmaker also has a dream of making at least one film with Manoj Tiwari. Even my hearts desire is fulfilled with the making of LAAL LUGGA with him.

Even In JODI LAAGE RE KAMAAL you have signed Bhojpuri super star Pawan Singh. Right?

Oh! Yes. And 1 am very happy that our company is the first such company which has made films with all the Big Stars of Bhojpuri Cinema, Then be it Sujit Kumar of yesteryear or the new generation super stars like Manoj Tiwari, Ravi Kishan, Pawan Singh, Krishna Abhishek, Vinay Anand, or Dinesh Lal Yadav Nirahua'. 1 will be very grateful to Dinesh Lal Yadav 'Nirahua' that inspite of not being under contract with our company recently he encouraged us a lot during the making of our film GABBAR SINGH.

You are yourself a very capable director then why have you given the directorial reigns of both your films LAAL LUGGA & JODI LAAGE RE KAMAAL to Manjul Thakur?

After directing GABBAR SINGH I had taken a firm decision that I will not direct Bhojpuri films anymore. I had seen the work of Manjul Thakur in BRIJWA and I think he has done a fantastic job.

But after GABBAR SINGH cine goers expectations have gone sky high for your company Shree Siddhi Vinayak Media Entertainment So now your films must be more powerful than before. What say?

That's why we are taking every step carefully. We want to expand and connect the roads, opened by our earlier films GABBAR SINGH & HUM BAL BRAMACHARI TU KANYA KUNWARI, to more and more success with all our future films.

It is being said that nowadays Bhojpuri films are victims of unfair distribution. Do you think this is true?

Yes! We have also suffered because of these and we do not wish to suffer in future.

Your company has dabbled in the Small Screen arena too. So after the serial GANGA JAMUNA what are you planning next?

There are many projects in the pipeline which we are working on and gradually you will come to know all about it.
