Mangaluru, Apr 13: ‘Zanvoy No.1’, a much-awaited Konkani film produced by Sangati Creations and directed by Bollywood and Bhojpuri cinema’s ace director Harry Fernandes staring Bollywood actress Varsha Usgaonkar, Goan star Kevin D’Mello, and international model and pageant winner Josita Anola Rodriguez released at 13 theaters of coastal Karnataka on Friday, April 13.

Dr Aloysius Paul D’Souza, bishop of Mangaluru diocese invoked God’s blessings at the inauguration ceremony of the film at Big Cinemas, Bharath Mall.



Addressing the gathering, Bishop Dr Aloysius Paul D’Souza said, “It is great news for the Konkani film industry as we witness back-to-back releases in the past few years. It shows how the industry is growing with the talents of Konkani community using the industry for their growth. This should be a continuous process. With experience in Konkani movies, our actors should shine in other languages too,”

“The title ‘Zanvoy No.1’ indicates that the film is going to be special. We have heard ‘Hero No 1’, ‘Coolie No 1’ and others earlier. But, for the first time it is ‘Zanvoy (Son in Law) No.1’. Normally, parents expect a good husband for their daughter. But, this movie presents the son-in-law as ‘No.1’ which is something really interesting. I request the entire Konkani community to watch this movie,” he said.

Wishing success to the movie Roy Castelino, former president of Konkani Sahitya Academy said, “Making a movie is not an easy job. It involves an investment of large amount of money. If producers earn the money they invest, they can reinvest it in another movie. Hence, we the audience, should support them by watching the movie and also spread good reviews,”

“‘Sangati Creations’, from Mumbai have produced this movie. They want their movie to reach every nook and corner of the world. If they get good returns, they will definitely produce another movie. Today, they have handed over their product to us. We have to promote it,” he added.

Actress Varsha Usgaonkar said, “I always wanted to act in a Konkani movie as it is my mother tongue. Through ‘Zanvoy No.1’ I have fulfilled my dream. I thank director Harry Fernandes for providing me this opportunity. We artists always speak to our audience through the big screen. I request all to watch the movie and support us.”

Richard Castelino, senior director, Eric Ozario, music director and Michael D’Souza, NRI businessman, wished all success to the movie. Harry Fernandes, director and Cyril Castelino thanked the guests and gathering.

Actors Stany Alvares, Rons London, Sujatha Andrade, Deepak Paladka and others were present.
