The Marathi film Chandramukhi, directed by Prasad Oak, is all set to go on floors in November.

The project was announced by Akshay Vilas Bardapurkar’s Planet Marathi and Piiyush Singh’s Golden Ratio Films in January this year. 

Chandramukhi will see Oak and screenwriter Chinmay Mandlekar team up once again after Kaccha Limbu (2017) and Hirkani (2019)

The film is based on the novel named Chandramukhi by author Vishwas Patil. It tells the story of a lavani dancer who is set on an unconventional journey. The film aims to unite the worlds of tamasha and politics. 

Singh said in an official statement that the filmmakers' were striving to keep audiences entertained. “The audience is sensitive now more than ever to meaningful content. We have all hands on deck and a great team on board to take this film to greater heights. We thrive to entertain our audience with content that brings meaning along with entertainment. Although we cannot talk much about the cast and the storyline at this point, we are certain that the audience will love this film [sic],” the statement read.

Bardapurkar added that it was vital for them to do justice to Patil’s book. “Chandramukhi is a perfect example of a content-driven piece that will move the audience. The film explores the realities of a spellbinding woman who finds herself on an unconventional path. We are excited to tell this story. At the same time, this is a huge responsibility to retain the authenticity of the bestseller by Vishwas Patil. We have a blend of talented filmmakers, musicians and artistes who are known for their craft,” he said. 

He added that the film promises to take Marathi cinema to greater heights. "Being the only big banner Marathi film to go on floors after the pandemic started, Chandramukhi has stirred a lot of excitement in the Marathi movie fans. The shoot begins in November 2020,” added Bardapukar.
