Manish Tiwary: Chidiakhana is the story of every underdog
Director Manish Tiwary says his latest venture Chidiakhana says the movie reflects the plight of underdogs the world over
Director Manish Tiwary says his latest venture Chidiakhana says the movie reflects the plight of underdogs the world over. His film is the story of an underdog named Sooraj, a teenager from the hinterlands of Bihar who comes to Mumbai with his mother and finds himself caught in the throes of the Marathi-Bihari conflict that threatens to take him away from his only passion - football, a game, that he worships, reveres and lives day in and day out.
"When you follow your dreams with passion and work hard, you find help from the most unexpected quarters. But will the boy be able to scale the wall that stands between him and his dreams in the zoo of this world that seems to bring with it unique creatures with minds of their own, forms the base of my film," Tiwary said in a statement.
Tiwary, who is working on the post-production of the film, added: "The hero might be a young teenager fighting against all odds, but in him lies the story of each one of us, our strife and our will that will bend things our way. I would like 'Chidiakhana' to inspire each viewer to achieve his dreams, irrespective of their circumstances."
The director's past films include Issaq and Dil Dosti Etc.
