After Deepika Natha Desire to Meet Big B

After meeting with Deepika Padukone, now Natha’s desire of meeting with Bollywood stars are growing. Now, it’s a turn for Amitabh Bachchan with whom Natha (Omkar Das Manikpuri) wants to meet. Omkar is playing a lead role of Natha in Aamir’s next PeepliLive.

Excited Natha wants that soon his film hit the box office so that he can meet with his ideal, Amitabh Bachchan. Manikpuri says,

“Since childhood, I have been a huge fan of Mr Bachchan. I am hoping he comes for the film premiere.”

“All this seems like a dream. It is quite unbelievable. My friends and family back in the village call me and talk about the promos on television. I feel really happy when they say all such nice things. Aamir ji recently made me meet the Love Aaj Kal heroine— Deepika ji (Padukone). She was very nice to me too.”

Omkar is Chhattisgarh artist and actor, who was taking part in the local form of folk theatre called Nacha, honing his skills as a singer, actor and a stand-up comedian over the course of shows. Explaining about what he felt when he putted into Natha’s character, Manipuri said,

“I could do this film because I did not have to do any homework on how I have to look or how I have to talk. I just needed to get acquainted with the camera and Anushaji helped me with that.”

When asked about who is his best friend on the sets, Manikpuri happily replied Shalini Vatsa, who plays the role of Dhania — Natha’s wife. He said,

“It was nice meeting great actors like Naseeruddin Shah and Raghubir Yadav, but Shalini ji helped me a lot by explaining things really well. All the difficult scenes were taken care of by her.”

Hope, Omkar will be able to meet his ideal, Amitabh Bachchan and move forward in Bollywood.
