In terms of the English language, the subject moves from the letter ‘B’ to the letter ‘A’!

Following  the stupendous success of Baipan Bhari Deva (2023), Jio Studios and Kedar Shinde will rekindle the magic with another celebration of womanhood in their next film, titled Aaipan Bhari Deva, a film dedicated to the multifaceted essence of motherhood.

Baipan Bhari Deva remains the second-highest grossing Marathi film of all time, and Jio Studios and filmmaker Kedar Shinde have announced the new film. If Baipan Bhari Deva meant ‘Being a woman is tough’, the new title means ‘Motherhood is tough’!

On the occasion of International Woman’s Day on March 8, the makers took to social media to make this special announcement.

He added, “Baipan Bhari Deva has taught me valuable lessons. I made the film for my mother, my wife, my daughter, my aunt and my grandfather. With each film, we take away a learning, but the overwhelming response inspired me to understand better and delve deeper into a woman’s mind. With success comes responsibility, and while planning my next film, I thought being a mother has so many facets and a mother’s emotions are like a bottomless sea. So why not make a film dedicated to all mothers? Aaipan Bhari Deva is not just for all women, but for every human being, because everyone has a mother…”

“I’m looking forward to partnering once again with Jio Studios who backed me on my vision for Baipan Bhari Deva and are committed to compelling storytelling. With Aaipan Bhari Deva, we hope to once again deliver a film that will cut across all audiences and leave an enduring impact”.

As the journey unfolds and anticipation builds around the project, knowing the kind of films that Shinde has treated his audience to in the past, one can only expect another out-of-the-box entertainer this time round too.

The Jio Studios presentation is produced by Kedar Shinde Productions, Jyoti Deshpande and Bela Shinde and co-produced by Ajit Bhure. Written by Vaishali Naik and Omkar Mangesh Dutt, the film details are expected to follow soon.
