Jagdish Gupta produced Satirical Comedy film MUAVZA, that starts Annu Kapoor in central character, had its moments of scare. While shooting at Bhatta Pasaul village in UP, some gujjars, took exception to the story, and decided to take matters in their own hands. Explains the writer director Girish Juneja, “it’s story is about nova rich villagers who are getting high compensation from government for acquisition of their land around Delhi and NCR. We were shooting there with Annu Kapoor, Akhilendra Mishra, Pankaj Beri and Kamlesh Gill ji. Gujjars are a very proud and head-strong community. Somehow they felt that we were only doing mockery of their customs and behavior in our film. So few people from other village came to our location and put a gun on the temple of one of our team members. We had to stop the shoot for almost a day to sort out the matter but It was a very scary moment for us, because they really don’t think twice before pulling the trigger. Luckily they were from other village, so people from our village came for our rescue.”


A rib tickling, super sarcastic, unique story of razor sharp wit, ‘ MUAVZA’ is focusing on the lives of Nuevo Rich of Delhi & NCR. How expansion of Delhi and NCR into neighboring villages has turned worthless lands also of few villagers into millions. Their absolutely hilarious way of spending money gives an insight into their characters.
