It has been reported that the young director of Peepli Live, Anusha Rizvi is quite nervous. This is her directorial debut and the movie is a dark comedy on the increasing breach between rural and urban lives.
Her anxiety is coordinated by that of Omkar Das Manikpuri from Brindanagar village in Chhattisgarh. He is none other than the lead actor of the movie, who wants the movie to do well at the box-office so that he can go ahead and shake hands with his idol, Amitabh Bachchan, the Bollywood legend.
Manikpuri plays the role of Natha in Peepli Live. The movie is slated for release on this 13th August. Manikpuri hopes that the Big B would come at the premier of the movie.
He says that it is his long-cherished dream to shake hands with Big B. He also said that Aamir Khan had arranged his meeting with the Love Aaj Kal heroine, Deepika Padukone and she was nice to him.
