Debutant director Vinod Kapri, who is all set for the release of his much awaited flick ‘Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho’, and was spotted in New Delhi with the entire star cast to promote his film.
Speaking exclusively to ANI, Kapri said; “This is a social satire which is entirely inspired by a real life incident which happened in Rajasthan. So, I personally went to that village, investigated the whole story and met village panchayat, pradhan, police officers, judges, lawyers and I found it so interesting that I could make an interesting satire.”
Annu Kapoor, who will be seen playing a leading role spoke on the recent controversy surrounding the film with a Khap Panchayat and said, “I think they should have a look at the movie at a very wider perspective and this is not the first time that a local panchayat or khap has passed this kind of diktat and it’s not a good sign when you have this kind of parallel governing bodies. We claim to be the largest democracy on papers so we Indian’s will have to prove that our democracy is one of the finest in the world and is not a banana republic. Why and How? We have to make sure that these parallel running govt. bodies are not allowed this kind of powers.”
Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho is about a man who is falsely accused by a village strongman that he has raped a buffalo. The powerful man of the village also gets the Khap panchayat to pass a verdict that he has to marry the victim – the buffalo called Miss Tanakpur.
Scheduled to release on 26th June, the film also features Om Puri, Rahul Bagga, Ravi Kishan, Sanjay Mishra and Hrishita Bhatt in supporting roles.
