Bhau Kadam plays an unusual role of a BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) sweeper in his next film Nashibvaan, which is the directorial debut of cinematographer Amol Gole. The film also stars Mitalee Jagtap Varadkar and Neha Joshi.
Bhau Kadam spoke about the film and his role during a conversation with Cinestaan.com. Speaking about his character, he said, “I play Baban, who is a BMC sweeper. He plays the central character. There comes a time when some major changes occur in his life. What happens then is the rest of the story. Earlier he is quiet, then he just becomes heroic.”
Asked what research he did for the role, Kadam laughed, “You don’t need research for sweeping. I left everything to director Amol Gole. I told him I will do exactly what you ask me to. I have tried doing that. The experience was very good. There must be hardly one or two scenes where I am actually shown sweeping.”
Before this film, Gole was director of photography for several well-known Marathi and Hindi films like Stanley Ka Dabba (2011), Touring Talkies (2013), Elizabeth Ekadashi (2014), Hawaa Hawaai (2014) and Rangaa Patangaa (2016).
So, does Baban become Nashibvaan (lucky) in the end? Kadam said, “You will get to know whether or not he becomes Nashibvaan only after watching the film. It won’t be right if I reveal it now. You will enjoy it.”
Kadam has done quite a few films. But he is also known for his television shows Chala Hawa Yeu Dya and Fu Bai Fu, which strengthened his image as a comic actor.
Kadam said he is okay doing both kinds of roles. “I enjoy comedy and sometimes when I do serious roles, I enjoy that too. I am an artiste, so I have to do whatever work comes my way. We need to enjoy whatever we do.”
Produced by Landmarc Films, Nashibvaan will be released on 11 January.
