Abhishek Bachchan’s Reaction On Dasvi Inspiring Agra Jail Inmates To Clear Board Exams, “Bigger Than Any Award”
The last outing of actor Abhishek Bachchan, Dasvi might not have done well on the digital platform in terms of numbers but seems like the film has become inspirational for many. Recently, a piece of news has confirmed that the movie has made twelve inmates from Agra Central Jail clear their class 10 and 12 UP Board exams. Seeing the impact of the film on the lives of people prompted a reaction from Junior Bachchan himself. Here’s what he said.
Reacting to the same, an elated Abhishek called it ‘bigger than any award’ the film’s team could have hoped for. “It feels wonderful when you see the positive effect a film you’ve been a part of make in real life. Credit has to go to the students and my director, Tushar. His belief in the film and the story he wanted to tell. This news is bigger than any award or accolade we as a team could have received,” he stated.
Dasvi was released two months back. The film portrays the journey of a politician (played by Abhishek Bachchan) clearing his class 10 exams in his 40s. Back in April, it was reported that several inmates of Agra Central Jail, where the major portion of Dasvi was shot, will sit for their exams after watching the film. Now that the results of UP Board’s Class 10 exams are out, many of them have passed with flying colors.
Sharing the same news, the director of Dasvi Tushar Jalota said, “I’m really happy to hear such heartwarming news. With Dasvi, we always wanted to make a mainstream, entertaining film where we spoke about the importance of education. But the most important thing was that we all had very honest intentions while making it. The fact that we could manage to inspire and impact so many lives for the good has truly made it a very fulfilling experience.”
Dasvi also starred Yami Gautam and Nimrat Kaur in pivotal roles. It was produced by Jio Studios and Maddock and was released on Netflix and Jio Cinemas.
