'Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga' is about man-animal conflict

May 25, 2022 KRR

Actor Pankaj Tripathi’s upcoming film 'Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga' is all about the interplay of urbanisation, poverty and man-animal conflict. Helmed by noted Bengali director Srijit Mukherji, the film is Mukherji's second Hindi film after the 2017 period drama 'Begum Jaan', starring Vidya Balan.

According to the director, it takes great courage to sacrifice one's life to save the family and his film revolves around this heroism with a focus on the conflict between man and nature. He said he drew inspiration from a real incident caused by "tragic practices" in villages bordering the Pilibhit Tiger Reserve.

Meanwhile, Tripathi has tweeted a sunny on-location picture with co-star Sayani Gupta to ramp up the excitement for the flick, which is slated for a June 24 release. "The affection in the eyes. The purity in the hearts," the actor tweeted about the picture. In her retweet, Sayani gushed lovingly: "Dreamy eyed with this dreamy man!"

It made Mukherji weigh in with the comment: "Dhoop tera mastana!' -- obviously playing with the words of the famous Kishore Kumar song, 'Roop tera mastana', picturised on Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore in 'Aradhana'.
