The story of the Banjo movie revolves around the Banjo players in Maharashtra who are not given that importance and attention which they deserve. In the movie, it will be shown that how this sphere of art is neglected despite so many young talents taking part in it. The film is being directed by Ravi Jadhav who is National Award winning director and is known for his remarkable movies like Balak Palak, Natrang, and Timepass. With Banjo, the society will be given a social message and the attention of the audiences will be drawn to the problem of ignorance to this dying art of playing the banjo. The story will move with the character of banjo player aka Ritesh Deshmukh who resides in a slum. To fulfill his dreams he goes to overseas. How he meets with an orchestra, how he takes a leap to complete his journey is what audiences will see in the movie. In the story, Nargis Fakhri is playing the role of an NRI coming from America which best suits the actress due to her accent.

Ravi wanted to make this movie before the Balak Palak and Timepass, but now finally he gets time to direct it. This movie will hit the theater on 19th August 2016. So, you still have to wait for some time for this movie. Meanwhile, Ritesh will be seen with Nargis Fakhri in Housefull 3 which will release on 3 June 2016.

We wish Banjo team good luck and hope that the movie will do good on box office.
