It has always been since October 24, 1978, when Karz starring Rishi Kapoor was launched by Subhash Ghai as a producer for the first time under his production banner, Mukta Arts, named after his wife, Mukta Ghai on their wedding anniversary. Karz went on to become a classic. Again, on October 24, 1982, Subhash Ghai launched Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Sheshadri for the hit musical, Hero, establishing Mukta Arts as a private limited company and turning it into one of the top production banners following the launch of several blockbusters, each of them being launched on October 24.
Since then, October 24th has become a red-letter day for Subhash Ghai and even the Hindi film industry, with everyone being keen to know about the next launch by Mukta Arts Ltd., which also introduced several stars, as we all know of.
This year too, on October 24, 2021, the team at Mukta Arts Ltd. celebrated its 43rd anniversary with a simple havan ceremony at ISCON Mumbai along with the announcement of the completion of their current film, 36 Farmhouse, which is a comedy drama featuring the meeting of migrants with a rich family during the lockdown. As part of the anniversary celebration, Mukta Arts Ltd. also announced the theatre release of their Marathi sports film, Vijeta starring Subodh Bhave and Pooja Sawant on December 03, 2021.
The important celebration at ISCON, Mumbai on October 24, 2021, was attended by several well-wishers including Jackie Shroff, Amol Parashar, Alka Yagnik, Sonu Nigam, Kumar Taurani & Ramesh Taurani of Tips Industries Ltd., Manmohan Shetty, directors like Anees Bazmee, Satish Kaushik, Karan Razdan and many other friends.
The only thing missing at the celebration was the announcement of the launch of a new film. When asked about it to Subhash Ghai, he revealed to his friends that the team at Mukta Arts Ltd. has finalised a wonderful script based on the story of a reformist jailer and his five young terrible prisoners of today. Jackie Shroff will play the pivotal role as a cynic jailer in this unusual jail-based film to be ever produced by Mukta Arts Ltd. and Zee Studios.
Mukta Arts Ltd. Is also planning new venture into producing web series for small screens in this year along with feature films for the big screens, which are yet to be announced.
