Manjhi-The Mountain ManFacebook
The film, a biopic, is based on Dasharath Manjhi, a resident of Gehlaur village in Atri block of Gaya district in Bihar.
The ‘Mountain Man’ had, single-handedly, cut through a hill to make a road for his village. Working day and night, Manjhi had carved out a passage with a hammer and a chisel. Manjhi had taken up the uphill task after his wife was injured and he had to take a long detour around the hills to reach the nearest hospital.
Manjhi, who died in 2007 in his early 80s, also wanted to develop his native village so that it had all the basic facilities — but that was a dream which remained unfulfilled in his lifetime, and later.
The film also features Radhika Apte, Tighmanshu Dhulia and Pankaj Tripathi in important roles.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s “Manjhi – The Mountain Man” movie is yet to be released in theaters, but the film has already been leaked online.
“Manjhi – The Mountain Man”, also starring Radhika Apte, is slated to release on 21 August and had gone to the censor board for review. But the censor copy of “Manjhi – The Mountain Man” full movie got leaked online, BollywoodLife.com reports.
Ketan Mehta’s directorial film is the fourth film this year that has been leaked online. Earlier, Malayalam blockbuster film “Premam” was leaked online before its release. Later, Kamal Haasan’s movie “Papanasam” pirated copy leaked online after its release.
And recently, Nawazuddin’s “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” was leaked online, but not much was reported about the Salman Khan starrer. And now his upcoming release “Manjhi” has been uploaded online illegally on several sites.
