Pratik Gandhi and Patralekhaa are going to essay the role of their upcoming film titled Phule which is based on the characters of Mahatma Jyotirao Govindrao Phule and Savitribai Phule.

It all happened when Content Engineers and Dancing Shiva Productions announced their unmatched association with Pratik Gandhi and Patralekhaa.

The actors are about to star in the biopic of renowned social activists Mahatma Jyotirao Govindrao Phule along with his wife Savitribai Phule. The upcoming Hindi language film will be directed by Ananth Narayan Mahadevan. The film is said to be both marketed and released across the globe.

On the occasion of the 195th birth anniversary of Mahatma Phule, the first look of the film was released. One reason why the first look of Phule poster has got all the attention is because of the striking resemblances to Savitribai Phule and Mahatma Phule.

Both of the activists are known to have fought against the issues of untouchability and caste system. During their protests, they demanded equal rights to lower middle class people of the country.

Both of the happened to be the core members of the foundation of Satyashodhak Samaj (Society of Truth Seekers).

This is what Pratik had to say after he got the role, “It’s a real honor to take Mahatma Phule’s legacy to the world. Phule is my first biographical film and even though the challenges are huge, given the fact that he was such an inspirational Indian leader; it’s also a dream role and I can’t wait to get started. I remember saying yes immediately after hearing the narration. Some characters just come to you and I am glad that Ananth sir came to me with this film. It’s wonderful that Content Engineers and Dancing Shiva have taken the responsibility of telling an unexplored part of Mahatma Jyotiba and Savitribai Phule’s life to the millennials.”

Patralekhaa also commented, “I grew up in Shillong, Meghalaya, which boasts of a matriarchal society so gender equality is very close to my heart. Savitribai joined hands with her husband to start the first indigenously-run school for girls in Pune way back in 1848. Mahatma Phule also championed widow remarriage and together they set up an orphanage to prevent infanticide. This is one film that will stay with me long after it is over,” she said.

Phule is a film to star Patralekhaa and Pratik Gandhi in their respective pivotal roles. The film is produced by Ritesh Kudecha, Anuya Chauhan Kudecha, Utpaal Acharya, Saurabh Varma, Pranay Chokshi and Dr. Raj Kishor Khaware in their respective pivotal roles.

An excited Pratik says, “It’s a real honour to take Mahatma Phule’s legacy to the world. Phule is my first biographical film and even though the challenges are huge, given the fact that he was such an inspirational Indian leader; it’s also a dream role and I can’t wait to get started. I remember saying yes immediately after hearing the narration. Some characters just come to you and I am glad that Ananth sir came to me with this film. It’s wonderful that Content Engineers and Dancing Shiva have taken the responsibility of telling an unexplored part of Mahatma Jyotiba and Savitribai Phule’s life to the millennials.”

An elated Patralekhaa commented on the much-coveted project. “I grew up in Shillong, Meghalaya, which boasts of a matriarchal society so gender equality is very close to my heart. Savitribai joined hands with her husband to start the first indigenously-run school for girls in Pune way back in 1848. Mahatma Phule also championed widow remarriage and together they set up an orphanage to prevent infanticide. This is one film that will stay with me long after it is over,” she asserts.

Writer, actor, director Ananth Mahadevan has made a name for himself with acclaimed biopics like Mee Sindhutai Sapkal which traces the real-life journey of a social activist who became a saviour for homeless children, Gour Hari Dastaan on a freedom fighter and his silent, 32-year war against his government and Doctor Rakhmabai based on the life of India’s first female practising doctor and more recently the highly acclaimed Mai Ghat and Bittersweet.

Says Ananth, “There are so many inspiring stories in our country that are still unknown or for some reasons kept under wraps by historians. Films are a great way to connect the younger generation to these unsung heroes. Jyotiba and Savitri Phule are the torchbearers of social revolution in India and I couldn’t have asked for a better cast and team that is backing this project.“

Phule, starring Pratik Gandhi and Patralekhaa, directed by Ananth Narayan Mahadevan, Produced by Dr. Raj Kishor Khaware, Pranay Chokshi, Saurabh Varma, Utpaal Acharya, Anuya Chauhan Kudecha and Ritesh Kudecha, is slated to release in 2023.
