Parvati the city of Pune’s biggest slum must feel happy now. Reason is a four year old boy named Mayur Patole from that slum has acted in a biopic of Budhia Singh. It is well known that this Buddha Singh was regarded as the youngest in the world to have run a great distance of 65 kms from Bhubaneshwar to Puri in 7 hours and 2 min at the age of four. This biopic has been produced by the famous Viacom18 that had previously produced films like Mary Kom, Bhaag Milkha Singh etc.
It is now brought to light that this kid Mayur Patole took part in the auditioning and there were around 3000 kids who also came for the audition. In the end Mayur won and was selected to play the role in the biopic. According to Poorva Paranjape who is one of the artist coordinators of this biopic kids who were earthy and unschooled were considered for the role that was primarily from the slum background.
It is interesting to note that Mayur Patole was one amongst shortlisted kids of 300 and that list was further reduced to 20. Paranjape further said that they needed someone with no acting experience and Mayur fitted the role completely in all aspects. Mayur Patole expressed his delight regarding the role the acting schedule was for three months and he traveled to Mumbai for the shooting. He also said that he would do films also whenever chance to act comes. Great Mayur Patole!!
