Maithili Makhaan to be released on October 2

Meanwhile, this is India’s first film in Maithili Language is all set to be release on www.bejod.in on October 2. “Bejod” is India’s No. 1 platform when it comes to quality content in Bhojpuri and Maithili language.

The movie was conceived during the tragic Kosi floods of 2008, when filmmaker Nitin Neera Chandra was working with NGOs in the flood-affected areas of Nepal and Bihar borders. It’s 2020 and the filmmaker has still not found a single investor or platform that would showcase his project.

For this achievement, Roshan, who played the role of a Bihari, math genius, Anand Kumar, in his film, ‘Super 30’, did not leave a chance to congratulate them for this big win.

The actor had completely transformed himself to play a Bihari in Super 30 and convincingly so. He was hugely applauded for his portrayal.
