Dir Nitin Chandra’s National Award winning film 'Mithila Makhaan' to be released on Oct 2

Dir Nitin Chandra’s National Award winning film 'Mithila Makhaan' to be released on Oct 2

Mumbai, Sep 6 (UNI) Director Nitin Chandra, who directed the first ever mainstream Maithili film Mithila Makhaan and received the prestigious National Award is going to be released on October 2.
In a statement issued here, he said the idea of the film came in his mind during his visit to flood affected areas of Bihar during 2008-2009.
"I had made a documentary to understand this problem. While talking about flood, I realised and understood one reason for heavy exodus from Bihar. That was no livelihood at grass-root level. Floods were a havoc in the North Bihar. The idea came to me that how about economically abled individuals create jobs in their own village. This was the germ of the story which later developed and 5 - 6 years later I could make this film with help of an investor from Singapore. I wrote the story in 2013 and started searching for money but unfortunately could not find in my state. But I was fortunate that Producer Samir Kumar came along and with some other resources, I could make the film.”
