Bhubaneswar: Odia director Nila Madhab Panda's Bollywood movie, co-produced by Akshay Kumar Parija, is all set to release on November 24. The film titled 'Kadvi Hawa' is based on the global issue of climate change and focuses on Bundelkhand, Chambal and coastal villages of Kendrapara in Odisha.
Speaking to odishatv.in, Nila Madhab Panda said, "This is a story which we find everywhere in the world. It's about two people coming from two extreme weather conditions and what they face due to climate change."
Sanjay Mishra plays the most important character called Hedu who is a blind old man whereas Ranvir Shorey plays Gunu babu, a loan recovery agent from Odisha. Tillotama Shome is seen as the daughter-in-law of Hedu in the movie.
" My character is that of a normal Indian man. He is a blind man who is trying to protect himself from the cruelty of nature. He is trying to survive," said Sanjay Mishra.
"I play the character called Parvati and I am the emotional anchor of the movie," said actress Tillotama Shome.
"I play a ruthless and relentless bank recovery agent. Speaking Hindi in Odia accent is very difficult. Hope I have done a good job in the film and justice to the character," said actor Ranvir Shorey.
Reputed Ollywood producer Akshay Kumar Parija is also delighted to be a part of this film which is on a serious topic of climate change and global warming and is partly based on Odisha.
"The only difference is in Hindi we get larger audience than Odia. It was a very good journey working in the film," explained producer Akshay Kumar Parija.
The film which shows two extreme conditions of climate change and its impact got a special mention at the 64th National Film Awards earlier this year.
