The Bengaluru International Film Festival is being organized by the Karnataka Chalanachitra Academy for the Government of Karnataka. This is the 12th edition of BIFFES, the Bengaluru International Film Festival and is scheduled to be held from February 26th to March 4th, 2020 in Bengaluru.
The films made by filmmakers of great repute or award-winning films in the major international film festivals will be considered for the selection in different categories. One such category for Indian film competition is ‘The Chitrabharati Competition’. Mahesh Manjrekar's film Panghrun starring daughter Gauri Ingawle, is officially selected for the 12th edition of BIFFES in the Chitrabharati competition.
The film Panghrun is Gauri Ingawale’s official debut as a lead actress, releasing on 20th March 2020. Before even the release of the film, it has turned out to become a huge success. She has worked as a child artist in 3:56 Killari prior to this.
While Mahesh’s daughter Saiee debuted with Bollywood superstar Salman Khan in one of the most popular franchises of Bollywood, Dabangg3, his stepdaughter is making her debut in Marathi.
Last year, in the Bigg Boss Marathi Season 2, Salman Khan joined the stage with Mahesh Manjrekar when he revealed a musical trailer of his new Marathi film starring his step-daughter Gauri Ingawale. This being a period drama, Gauri is sporting a look from the yesteryear era. She is seen performing ballet to the music from a gramophone, in a nauvari saree! Her mature performance is evident in the 2 minutes musical trailer where sensitive emotion is conveyed only through her expressions and body language.
Amol Bavdekar and Sulekha Talwalkar are also a part of this film. The film's backdrop is set in a vintage era. From the looks of it, it seems to be a musical film with the melodious playback by Ketaki Mategaonkar.
