Pankaj Tripathi, Sayani Gupta

Pankaj Tripathi has tweeted a sunny on-location picture with co-star Sayani Gupta to boost excitement for Srijit Mukherji’s ‘Sherdil The Pilibhit Saga’, which is slated to release on June 24.

About the picture, the actor tweeted: “Love in eyes. Purity in hearts.” In her retweet, Sayani lovingly said- “Dream with this dreamy man.

“This prompted a famous Bengali director Mukherjee with the remark- “Dhoop Tera Mastana”.

Apparently ‘Aradhana’ has played with words from the famous Kishore Kumar song ‘Roop Tera Mastana’ featuring Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore.

‘Sherdil the Pilibhit Saga’, which is about the interplay of urbanisation, poverty and human-animal conflict, is Mukherjee’s second Hindi film after the 2017 period drama ‘Begum Jaan’ starring Vidya Balan.

He said he was inspired by a real incident that took place due to “tragic practices” in villages bordering the Pilibhit Tiger Reserve.

He said- “It takes a lot of courage to sacrifice one’s life to save a family and my film revolves around this heroism centered on the struggle between man and nature.”
