Films like 'Panchlait' happen once in a while: Yashpal Sharma

IANS  |  Mumbai 

Actor Yashpal Sharma, who will next be seen in Prem Modis "Panchlait", says such films come once in a while.

"'Panchlait' is the kind of cinema that happens once in a while and I'm glad to be a part of the project. The biggest draw for this film is that it is a Phanishwar Nath Renu story and we have made the film in its purest form keeping everything realistic. I'm waiting for the release now," Yashpal said in a statement.

The film also features Manoj Mitra and Churni Ganguly.

"Panchlait" tells the story of a kerosene lamp, which plays an integral part in a villager's life.

Talking about the film, Modi said: "I always had Phanishwar Nath Renu's stories in mind for my next venture. The simplicity in his stories is irresistible and growing up in Bengal I believe I have acquired a literary bent of mind. Besides I wanted to go pan India and Hindi had to be my medium of communication this time.

He added: "The storyline of 'Panchlait' is straight from the Hindi heartland which is the better part of our country and I'm sure audiences around the country will relate to it. It was extremely important to preserve the same regional flavour and philosophy upon which Renu's stories are based."

"Panchlait" is slated to release on November 17.
