The Movie was leaked online, but it is the Rough cut: Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Bollywood Actor who is riding high on success with Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, plays the role of Dashrath Manjhi in Ketan Mehta’s biopic “Manjhi-The Mountain Man”, said that the leaked version of the movie is just a rough cut and not the final version.

The 41-year-old “Kick 2” actor said he wants people to watch the movie on a big screen, including those who have already seen in their laptops, the online version.

“This is not the final cut. People who have watched it are calling it a cult classic, they have loved the movie. It is just the rough cut that they have watched. But picture abhi baaki hai…,” Nawazuddin told PTI.

“I just want people to watch the final version in theatres. They will enjoy it more. It is a big screen movie.”

The team, including Nawazuddin, Radhika Apte and Mehta, was in Gehlaur, Manjhi’s village to pay their tribute to the man, who single handedly broke down an entire mountain after his wife died due to unavailability of medical help.

Manjhi, after 22 years of struggle, carved the way between mountain so that the villagers get easier access to the nearby hospital and other places. He cut short the 70Kms travel to merely a Kilometres distance.

Mehta said while the leak incident was sad, fortunately it was an earlier rough cut of the movie.

“It is unfortunate. We were shocked when we heard about it that just before ten days of the movie’s release such a thing happened. Fortunately, it is an earlier rough cut, so hopefully when people see the final cut they will enjoy it much better.

Radhika Apte, who plays Manjhi’s wife in the film, praised Mehta for maintaining his positivity even after the leak.

“There have been obstacles in the last two years. Even the leak is unfortunate. But Ketan is a very positive person. And he has made a wonderful film which should be enjoyed in a theatre.”
The movie will hit the theatres on August 21.
