I don’t interfere in director’s work: Shreyas Talpade
Mumbai–Actor Shreyas Talpade, who is set to debut as a director in Bollywood with the Hindi remake of his Marathi movie “Poshter Boys”, said that as an actor he never likes to interfere in director’s work.

Speaking about the film, the “Iqbal” actor said, “The subject is quite unique. When the director (Ajit Sinha) came to meet me, I asked him for one line. He told me that this is a story of a farmer who claims that the land on which Taj Mahal was built is his land. The one line surprised me, thus got interested in the rest of the story. That is the USP of the film. The story seems to be appealing.”
“I am so happy that I am a part of the film like ‘Wah Taj’ which is a content-driven film with a very strong message,” he added.

Directed by Ajit Sinha, “Wah Taj” revolves around a Maharashtrian farmer’s struggle amidst the corrupt system. The film also features Manjari Fadnis in the lead and slated to release on September 23.
