Sakshi Tanwar is making her Bollywood debut with Sunny Deol in >>Mohalla Assi<< and they’re both in never-seen-before avatars! The film’s apparently leaked trailer that is doing the rounds on social media is garnering a lot of attention due to the free use of abuses by all the characters. Lying in the cans since 2012, Mohalla Assi is an upcoming Bollywood satirical film and also stars Ravi Kishan, Saurabh Shukla, Mukesh Tiwari, Rajendra Gupta and others in pivotal roles. The film is directed by Chandra Prakash Dwivedi who is most known for the television epic Chanakya and the Urmila Matondkar starrer Pinjar (2003).
Set in the post-independence period, the film is based in a famous and historical 'Mohalla' (locality) by the ghat Assi, on the southern fringes of Banaras. The film is loosely based on Dr. Kashinath Singh's popular Hindi novel “Kashi Ka Assi”, a satire on the commercialization of the pilgrimage city, and fake gurus that lure foreign tourists.
In the film Sunny Deol is playing a poor Brahmin Sanskrit teacher and an orthodox religious priest (Pundit) who is extremely upset with foreigners who damage the Benaras ghats by smoking ‘ganja’ and ‘bhang’. While the promo looks interesting and tells the story of Banaras in the post independence period, one can already sense the drama the censor board is going to have over this. Sakshi Tanwar plays Sunny Deol’s wife in the film.
