Riteish Deshmukh is not letting anything come in the way of his performance in Banjo , National award-winning film maker Ravi Jadhav’s Bollywood debut. Mirror has learnt that the 37-year-old actor recently shot in a sewer for the introductory sequence.
“Banjo artists have been a part of Mumbai’s landscape for the last 100 years but they have never gained respect for their art. It’s a tough job as they usually start playing from morning and go on till midnight without much rest. We wanted to portray how our hero, a Banjo player from the slums, rises with his art. Most heroes arrive on the screen on bikes, cars or horses, mine will emerge from a gutter,” Ravi explains.
