Mukta Arts acquires negative rights of Marathi film Valu

MUMBAI: Mukta Arts has acquired the negative rights including worldwide distribution of Valu (the wild bull), a Marathi language film directed by Umesh Vinayak Kulkarni and produced by Aantarik Films.

The film has an ensemble of top Marathi talent including Atul Kulkarni, Dr. Mohan Agashe, Dilip Prabhavalkar, Bharati Acharekar, Girish Kulkarni, Nirmitee Sawant and others. The music is by Mangesh Dhakde.

This is Mukta Arts’ reaffirmation of its commitment to Marathi cinema. It has already been involved in another Marathi film “Kaande Pohe” which is directed by Rajiv Patil, produced by Shreyas Talpade and has Tushar Dalvi, Shilpa Tulaskar and Subhodh Bhave among others as star cast.

Mukta Arts promoter Subhash Ghai said that having spent his entire career in Maharashtra, he wanted to give back to society what he got from the wonderful state. “This is only our first step” said Ghai. “We look forward to promoting new and fresh talent from Maharashtra. Valu is the first film of a young director and has a high quality of production for a regional language film. This speaks volumes for the young fresh talent from the industry and Mukta Arts is always committed to promoting new talent”.

Umesh Kulkarni expressed confidence that the film would receive good visibility in the hands of Mukta Arts. He also felt that this would give him time to focus on his new venture which is underway. He also expressed the hope that in the hands of Mukta Arts the film would reach out to wider audiences as the film has a talented cast which unfolds a story around the entrapment of a wild bull on the run.
