Nitin Desai heralds post covid era with cultural MahaUtsav at ND Studios end-April, pays musical tribute to Bharat Ratna Lata Mangeshkar

Four-time National Award-winning and three three-time Filmfare winning Veteran Art Director Nitin Desai is once again a Newsmaker. This time for organising the MahaUtsav to bring out the art, culture and heritage of Maharashtra encompassing a musical tribute to Bharat Ratna Lata Mangeshkar at the sprawling 52 acre ND Film Studios at Karjat.



On from April 28-May 1 (11am-10pm), the art, culture, drama,movies, food and films, the MahaUtsav as the name suggests promises workshops, fashion et al as well. The Glitterati of Tinsel Town will obviously descend at the Festival, given Nitin Desai's illustrious career spanning over two decades with cult films like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Lagaan, Devdas, 1942 -- A Love Story, Jodhaa Akbar, Parinda, Khamoshi, Maachis, Slumdog Millionaire, Such A Long Journey, and recent megastarrers like Prem Ratan Dhan Payo among many others. Nitin Desai is revered and appreciated for his work with directors like Ashutosh Gowarikar, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Sooraj R Barjatya, Rajkumar Hirani and Sanjay Leela Bhansali among others.



Considering that this festival is a tribute to the glorious history of Maharashtra, looks like we are in for a colourful cultural extravaganza to welcome the post covid era.
