Manoj, Diljit On Their Film Being Screened For Covid Warriors



A special screening  of  the Abhishek Sharma-directed  comedy  Suraj Pe  Mangal Bhari was  organized at the PVR  Juhu  Mumbai  on November 18 for the policemen of  Mumbai , as a stressbuster.

Speaking of  screening , the Abhishek Sharma -directed   film’s two leading men  spoke feelingly on how much it matters to spread happiness  among the  Covid warriors.

Says  Manoj, “It’s a privilege to show the film  to  the saviours and the warriors of these  times which will go down in the history as the deadliest time.They are  our  icons and deserve all love care and attention from the entire society.”

Adds Diljit, “Asli hero toh wahin hain. Hum  toh naqli hain(they are  the real heroes). They are the frontline  warriors. They  have been fighting the  Covid19 threat  headlong while we  have  been sitting safely at home.  If we can make them smile for a while, we consider ourselves blessed.”

In  fact Diljit wants to show more of his film to the Covid warriors. “It’s my  good fortune that most  of my films are feelgood comedies. I’d rather spread sunshine during these hard times than  do serious somber films.”

Adds Shariq Patel, CEO Zee Studios (the film’s co-producers), “It was our honour and privilege to help organise this screening. These warriors have been at the forefront battling this deadly virus and we were glad to have provided a couple of hours of entertainment with our family comedy.”
