Peepli Live director Anusha Rizvi remembers late actor Sitaram through his performance.

The film industry is in shock with the agonizing demise of the prominent actor Sitaram Panchal. Sitaram Panchal is known for his work in the movie Peepli Live. The actor from Peepli Live was suffering from cancer and died on Thursday after fighting a long battle between life and death. On this sorrowful occasion, the director of the film Anusha Rizvi  wanted to express her feelings for the director.


“I first met Sitaraman Panchal, or Situ Bhai as he was popularly known, when I was casting for ‘Peepli Live’. Unlike many other actors who would tell me that they are ‘one take’ actors and perform best only on the set, Situ bhai had no issues auditioning for the role of Bhai Thakur,” Anusha said.

“The character I felt was best represented by his opening line ‘Oh ho! Budhiyon babu aaiyen hain’. In this one line, I wanted condescension but also the confidence of a man so acutely aware of the power equation between the characters that he doesn’t need to be menacing in any way,” she said.


“Several fine actors auditioned for the role and somehow couldn’t strike a balance for me. Then came Situ Bhai. I along with my casting director Mahmood Farooqui went into the audition pretty low on expectations,” the filmmaker said.

“…’Bambayya actors hain’, we would say to each other. After brief introduction of the story and character , the filmmaker asked him to do the introduction scene,s he remembers this properly.
