Dharmendra Shekhar Ojha to make a film based on Dharamvir Bharti’s classic novel Gunahon Ka Devta, which is a passionate, tender love story of Chander and Sudha set in the late 1940s.
Gunahon ka Devta is a best seller and continues to be one of the most widely read and loved Hindi novels written by Dharamvir Bharti in 1949.
This film is being made with some different Title but it will be an adaptation of iconic novel Gunahon Ka Devta.
There was a film to be made based on this popular novel starring Amitabh Bachchan and jaya bachchan decades ago but later makers of this film stopped filming due to some unknown reasons.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan got nostalgic about a film based on renowned novelist Dharamvir Bharati’s popular book Gunahon Ka Devta with wife Jaya Bachchan, which eventually didn’t get completed.
“When I was a child, I used to hear a lot about Bharati’s novel, Gunahon Ka Devta. During those days in Allahabad and later in Delhi, my mother used to perform in plays of Shakespeare which my father had translated, in the four main tragedies of Shakespeare.
“I read Gunahon Ka Devta at that time, and had that wish of doing a play on it, if there would be one,” Amitabh said here at an event for the rechristening of the Bandra Gate Chowk after Bharati, who was also a recipient of the prestigious Padma Shri award.
“By the grace of God, a few days after I entered the film industry, I got an offer to do a role in a film being made on it. I got the role of Chandar and another delightful part was that the role of Sudha was given to Jaya,” he reminisced.
About the shoot of the film, Amitabh said : “We had not got married at that time, but we worked on the film with a lot of dedication… The shooting took place in Allahabad during the summer.”
“More people knew Jaya since she was a bigger star than me, but still not many knew her and absolutely no one knew me. About 7-8 reels of the film were made but, unfortunately, it couldn’t be completed due to some reasons which we always regret about,” he added.
Incidentally, it has been reported that Rekha was also part of this incomplete film and was one of the lead characters.
Dharmendra Shekhar Ojha, who has announced this film said, “I shall be gratefull if megastar Amitabh Bachchan accepts our proposal to work in this film. We want to cast him as Sudha’s father Dr. Shukla. We are also considering Shahid kapoor for the role of chander.”
Dharmendra Shekhar Ojha is expected to start shooting for the film next year. He currently working on its preproduction things.
