Incidentally Raja Harishchandra was released exactly 95 years ago-on May 3, 1913.
Paresh Mokashi is the writer and the director of the film, whereas Shrirang Godbole is the executive producer of this first of his kind venture.
"The film is of two hours duration and is totally based on facts. The budget goes slightly higher as compared with other movies, but the audience will surely like the film," said Mokashi. According to the maker, no feature film has been made so far on Dadasaheb Phalke. His film Harishchandrachi Factory is an attempt to bring forward the incredible story of how India's first film was put together. "Currently the Marathi film industry is doing very well in terms of effective handling of innovative subjects, which is matter of great sense of pride for all of us, who are associated with it. We hope that this film will not only introduce the current generation to origin of film making in India but would also act as a source of inspiration for them," said Shrirang Goadbole. The production of the film is underway in Pune since April 15 and is likely to be completed in a schedule of 45 days.
