Director Manish Tiwary’s film ‘Chidiakhana’ to release June 2



After Dil Dosti Etc and Issaq director Manish Tiwary’s latest offering Chidiakhana is all set for a June 2 release. Produced by National Film Development Corporation (NFDC) and presented by Bharati Studios, the film will be released by Platoon One.

A coming-of-age story of a Bihari boy (Ritwik Sahore) who is embraced by residents of a Maharashtrian chawl due to his grit, imagination and especially his soccer skills. The film beautifully highlights on how there is a tiger in every underdog among us.

Says Manish, “Chidiakhana is the story of an underdog who makes his mark thanks to his passion for football, and in the process, not just empowers himself, but also his friends, his educational institution and turns enemies into friends. Chidiakhana is a story of team spirit and togetherness, and how when small drops come together, can become the ocean”.

Manish Tiwary is particularly passionate about the casting choices for this film. “Ritvik Sahore seemed the perfect fit for the lead character Sooraj, as his innocence reflects in his demeanor. Avneet Kaur, as Sooraj’s crush, is like a breath of fresh air. Rajeshwari Sachdev works well as the mother who has left everything to safeguard her child. Prashant Narayanan stands out as the gunda with the golden heart. Ravi Kishan, Govind Namdev and Aanjjan Srivastava play their characters with amazing conviction. Each of the boys from the football team come with their own strengths, weaknesses and character. Hence, Chidiakhana, as seen through the eyes of the protagonist,” elaborates Manish Tiwary.

Interestingly, Manish Tiwary, who hails from Bihar, was educated at Cambridge University, UK, and Yale University, USA.The film ia about  Sooraj  from Bihar and coming to Mumbai and finding his foothold in the labyrinth of this city.
