Radhika Apte gets intimate with Nawazuddin Siddhiqui


Radhika Apte and Nawazuddin Siddhiqui’s forthcoming film ‘Manjhi-The Mountain Man’ is making lots of buzz for its content. Now the latest report about the film is that Radhika ad Nawazuddin shoots an intimate scene for the film. The love-making scene was shot in a mud.

Director Ketan Mehta wants the intimate scene to be shot in a muddy terrain to reflect the rawness of the film and to make the scene sensuous.

The trailer of ‘Manjhi-The Mountain Man’ was well received. In the film, Nawazuddin plays the coveted role Manjhi and Radhika Apte plays his dutiful wife Paghunia.  

The biopic is based on the true story of Dashrath Manjhi (also famous as ‘the mountain man’), a poor laborer in the remote Gehlaur village of Gaya (Bihar), who single-handedly carved a path through a mountain using only a hammer and chisel in memory of his deceased wife.

This is an extraordinary story of an ordinary man of strong spirit. Manjhi’s wife dies miserably slipping from the mountain while trying to get food for her family. Manjhi is unable to get medical aid for her as the nearest doctor was about 70kms away and the path was extremely dangerous. After he lost his wife, Manjhi took the initiative to carve the route through the mountain so no other person has to travel through the dangerous path ever again.

‘Manjhi- The Mountain Man’ will hit theatres in August.
