On the day of his birthday (5th June) director, Milind Ukey surprised the Monsoon Football team by unveiling the name of the second cast of the movie by roping in Chitrashi Rawat from Chak De! India for the second lead along with Sagarika Ghatge. So it’ll be a reunion for the girls with Monsoon Football, the difference being that they were playing hockey then and now Football.
Chitrashi Rawat was last seen in a 2015 Movie, Black Home and now makes a sporty comeback with Milind Ukey’s most ambitious project Monsoon Football which also marks her debut in Marathi Cinema. The movie shall revolve around the middle-class housewives who’re going through a monotonous schedule and dream to continue their passion even after marriage. The ambitious women shall be seen playing football and forming a team, with the attention score of them playing football in Saree and promoting Women Empowerment.
Chitrashi says Marathi Cinema is known for its hard hitting slice of life stories and I’ve been longing to do a Marathi film,I’m really happy that a film like Monsoon Football has come my way. Which is a nice blend of sports & the stories of mundane housewife lives. Also I’m really glad that our director Milind Ukey bringing me ,Sagarika ghatge and Seema Azmi to share the screen once again . It be a lot of fun.
”I was immensely impressed by Chitrashi Rawat in Chak De! India and I’ve always had the thought of having her on-board whenever I create a sport-centric movie. Monsoon Football is a project which is very close to me, for its concept and perspective that I am giving out to the audience and I want nothing but the best to justify the story. Chitrashi is a package of fun, seriousness, and talent altogether and it’s a wise choice to have her on-board with Monsoon Football.” says Director Milind Ukey.
We’re sure that the concept of the movie will be loved by all, however, it’ll indeed be a treat to watch Sagarika Ghatge & Chitrashi Rawat share the big screen yet again with this sport-centric Marathi Movie.
