Mumbai, July 5 (IANS) On the third anniversary of the release of “Lootera” on Tuesday, its lead actor Ranveer Singh said the 2013 Bollywood film is a cinematic jewel whose value appreciates with every passing year.
“Lootera”, directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, tells the story of a girl named Pakhi, an aristocrat’s daughter, who falls in love with an archaeologist in 1953 Bengal. However, she does not know that he leads a double life and eventually ends up breaking her heart and devastating her.
Ranveer reminisced the film’s release and tweeted: “Three years of ‘Lootera’… A cinematic jewel whose value appreciates with every passing year.”
The “Bajirao Mastani” star also lauded the film’s director, whom he calls a “revolutionary filmmaker”.
“Three years ‘Lootera’…honoured to have collaborated with this genius… Vikramaditya Motwane…revolutionary filmmaker,” he added.
“Lootera” saw Sonakshi Sinha in the role of Pakhi, and the simple and subtle character was a departure from past characters that she had played.
