Vidarbha farm widows to watch Stanley Ka Dabba
Vidarbha farm widows will watch Stanley Ka Dabba, a film produced jointly by Deepa Bhatia and Amole Gupte. The Vidarbha Farm Widows Association has booked the theatre on the first day of the release of the movie.
DEEPA BHATIA, editor and co-producer of Amole Gupte's film “Stanley ka Dabba” who has earlier directed documentary “Nero’s Guest”, a story about India's farmer suicides and the growing Vidarbha agrarian crisis and it’s impacts on thousands of Vidarbha farm widows has received block booking on the first day of release of movie, when hundreds of Vidarbha farm widows and their kids will watch the movie on May 13 as a matter of surprise.

“In fact, Deepa Bhatia has sent all funds collected through the sale of video cassette of documentary “Nero’s Guest” and more than Rs. 5 lakhs was received as relief aid by dying Vidarbha farm widows, and I was deeply moved when I received Rs. 25,000 cheque last week as special help for my daughter's marriage due on May 18 and there are more than dozen of us who received help from Deepa Bhatia for our daughter’s marriage or for education hence we are very much delighted to see ‘Deepa Didi's fist family movie” Bebitai Bais, president, Vidarbha Farm Widows Association (VFWA) informed today in a press release.
“The response is exactly opposite to Amir’s movie ‘Peepli-live” even when Amole Gupte, the producer of “Stanley ka Dabba” is closely associated with the Amir’smovies like ‘Tare Zamin Par” due to very close association and affection with hundreds of Vidarbha farm widows when they moved here from 2006 to 2009 to produce documentary “Nero’s Guest”.
"This is a fact that even when Amir Khan has made more than Rs. 100 crore from farmers suicide issue showing the problems in a very bad taste, he has not given single paisa to any of the Vidarbha farm widows,” Kishore Tiwari, president of VJAS said in a press release.
“We are making special arrangement to bring all widows to nearby cinema hall so that they can see the movie. Stanley Ka Dabba directed by Amole Gupte is a fantastically charming film, beautifully performed by Amole Gupte and the young boy Partho. It's the real side of the life that we don't see because children put up resilient, happy and shining faces, but behind such faces there are sad stories, which remain untold,” Tiwari added.
