About Salaam Venky
In Salaam Venky, Kajol is essaying the role of a mother to a terminally ill boy. Directed by actress-director Revathy, the film tells the heartwarming story of a mother-son duo as they face challenges thrown at them by life. It builds on the theme of making the most of life and features the legendary dialogue “Zindagi lambi nahi, badi honi chahiye, Babumoshai (Life should not be long but grand and meaningful)” from the Amitabh Bachchan and Rajesh Khanna-starrer movie ‘Anand’.
It sees Vishal in a wheelchair-bound character, who takes everything in his stride rather than being negative about his life. Salaam Venky touches upon the subject of ‘euthanasia’, which means the act of deliberately ending a person’s life to end their suffering.
The film also stars actors like Rajeev Khandelwal, Rahul Bose, Prakash Raj and a cameo by Aamir Khan. Presented by Connekkt Media and produced by Suuraj Sinngh, Shraddha Agrawal, and Varsha Kukreja under the banner Blive Productions and RTAKE Studios, ‘Salaam Venky’ is based on the novel The Last Hurrah by Shrikant Murthy.
