`Bumboo` is an intelligent comedy: Jagdish Rajpurohit
New Delhi: Director Jagdish Rajpurohit says his film, an adaptation of Francis Veber`s French film `L`emmerdeur`, is a slice of life film with great comic moments.
Rajpurohit, who is making his Bollywood debut with comedy "Bumboo", said that the film, which will hit theatres on March 30, will be appreciated by the Indian audience too.
"I was flying from Mumbai to Paris few years ago and I watched the film on board and I decided to make a Hindi adaptation of this great film. Unlike our slapstick comedies, this film has got some intelligent moments and great dialogues," he told PTI.
The small-budget film that stars Kavin Dave, Sanjay Mishra and Sudhir Pandey in the prominent roles, revolves around the various circumstances in one`s life that make it more beautiful.
The filmmaker, who started his career with hard hitting plays and worked with late theatre playwright Satyadev Dubey, said his film does not need superstars.
"My film is not a formula based one rather it`s a slice of life film. So, I needed people who could act and deliver dialogue. It`s a dialogue based comedy and I feel Sanjay and Sudhir are best names in it," he said.
Before the release of his debut film, Rajpurohit has already started working on his forthcoming project which will be based on custodial death.
"I am basically a storyteller and through my stories I want to make people aware of many serious issues. India is the country which faces the highest custodial deaths and I am currently working on the script," he said.
