Raghubir and Manikpuri together in ‘Alap’ again!

Raghubir Yadav and Omkar Das Manikpuri got much commendation because of their performances in Peepli [Live], and that paved their way to cast together in Nishant Tipathi’s upcoming movie Aalaap.

As Manikpuri belongs to the state of Chhattisgarh and the film is set there, director Manish Manikpuri took it for sure to cast him in the movie. Besides, his stand-up chemistry with Raghubir in their former movie, made him think to cast them again onscreen together, ensures producer Nishant Tripathi.

He makes the matter more clear saying, “We saw Raghubir-Omkar’s chemistry on screen in their earlier film and our film takes that forward. The two were just right for the roles of close relatives of our male protagonist, Rahul, played by Amit Purohit. It was the entire crew’s unanimous decision to cast them!” While Yadav plays Rahul’s father, Manikpuri plays the role of his maternal uncle.

Giving little hints about the storyline of the movie, his partner Abhishek Mishra adds, “It’s a character-driven film. Though they are poor, they lead an idealistic life. Yadav is a lovable father who prepares his son for life ahead.”

Excluding these two actors, the movie also stars Murali Sharma and Abhimanyu Singh. Talking about their characterization in the movie, director Manikpuri says, “Murali has a very challenging role, while Abhimanyu Singh excels as a fearless cop who takes on the challenging task of combating Naxalism.”

The movie ‘Alap’ is set to hit the theatres on July 27 and has been produced under Shri Shankaracharya Arts.
