Director Viju Mane’s much talked about Marathi movie Shikari is all set to be released on 20 April. But before the fate of that film is known, he is ready with his next which has a quirky title — Monkey Baat. He shared the title teaser of the film on his Facebook profile.

The title Monkey Baat sounds similar to India’s prime minister Narendra Modi’s radio show, Mann Ki Baat. But the film doesn’t take a dig at Mann Ki Baat. It is actually a children’s film revolving around monkeys. Mane revealed this in an on-location video shared on YouTube by Thane Post.

The film is been shot in Thane, which is also home for Mane. In fact, as said in the video, a number of crew members are also from the same place.

Monkey Baat stars Pushkar Shrotri, Bhargavi Chirmule and Nayan Jadhav, along with others. The film will also see heavy prosthetics being used to make kids look like monkeys.

Apart from Shikari, Mane has so far directed Gojiri (2007), Tee Ratra (2010), Sharyat (2011) and the Hindi film, Daughter (2015). He is popular for Ek Hota Kau, which was one of the four short films in Bioscope (2015).

Monkey Baat will hit the theatres on 18 May.
