‘Jeet Lo Marathon’ on a re-run

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - MY CITY -

After tak­ing part in his first Mumbai marathon in 2013, Luc­knowite ‘Aryan’ Neeraj Anand de­cided to make a film re­lated to this sport. He wrote, di­rected and acted in the film ‘Jeet Lo Marathon’ that was pre­miered at a city mul­ti­plex on Fri­day.

Pro­duced by Madhu Rani Gupta, the film has been shot in Lucknow, Mumbai and other cities and has cap­tured the Satara Hill, Mumbai and Pune marathon.

“On De­cem­ber 10, we re­leased the film in Lucknow. This is our rere­lease and we are do­ing it si­mul­ta­ne­ously in other cities of UP, Delhi-NCR, Ma­ha­rash­tra, Ra­jasthan, Chandi­garh and Ut­tarak­hand,” says Neeraj who is work­ing as deputy man­ager with the State Bank of India.

The film also has Ankita Bahuguna from Dehradun, Preena and Chan­dre Ma­rina and all of them are mak­ing their de­but with the film.

“The film has been sent to var­i­ous film fes­ti­vals and has won a few awards too,” says the ac­tor-di­rec­tor. A book by the same name is also up for grabs on the book stores and on­line por­tals.

“This is a ‘zero to hero’ story and our hum­ble ef­fort to pro­mote sports. Ev­ery in­di­vid­ual has one tal­ent or the other and we just need to in­den­tify it. It will surely reap re­sults if our ef­forts are sin­cere,” says Neeraj. They have shot the first half-an­hour of the film in Lucknow.
