Mumbai, March 30, 2021: Netflix today launched the trailer of its upcoming marathi drama, The Disciple, a multi-award winning film that follows the life of Sharad Nerulkar , essayed by talented actor and musician Aditya Modak. The story encapsulates the journey of Sharad, who diligently follows the traditions and discipline of the old masters- his guru and his father and devoted his life to becoming an Indian classical music vocalist. However, as the years go by, Sharad starts to wonder whether it's really possible to achieve the excellence he's striving for. This is a journey of devotion, passion, and searching for the absolute, in contemporary Mumbai.

Written and Directed by Chaitanya Tamhane, the film is produced by multi talented actor and producer, Vivek Gomber. Executive produced by Alfonso Cuar n, The Disciple is set to release on Netflix on the 30th of April, 2021. The film stars Aditya Modak, Arun Dravid, Sumitra Bhave, Deepika Bhide Bhagwat and Kiran Yadnyopavit in pivotal roles.

Looking back at the journey, Director Chaitanya Tamhane said The Disciple is a true labour of love and a story very close to my heart. It is the journey of a Hindustani classical vocalist's struggles, dreams, and artistic journey in contemporary Mumbai. We were blessed to have an extraordinary talent like Aditya Modak portray the protagonist, Sharad Nerulkar, through whose eyes we immerse ourselves in the fascinating world of Indian classical music. I am beyond happy that the film has found its home on Netflix, as there could not have been a better platform for this truly Indian story to reach a global audience.

Speaking about the film,Producer Vivek Gomber said "I'm incredibly excited to share the film with the world, we have waited a long time to do so. I am thrilled and grateful to have Netflix as our streaming partner. With their global appeal and reach, I have no doubt the film will find a discerning audience worldwide. I sincerely believe this is a universal story and will speak to all of us with dreams and aspirations."

The film was awarded the FIPRESCI International Critics Prize (FIPRESCI, short for Federation Internationale de la Presse Cinematographique) and the Best Screenplay award at the 77th Venice International Film Festival. It was also screened at the 2020 Toronto International Film Festival, where it was named a winner of the Amplify Voices Award. The film has also been nominated at the Film Independent Spirit Awards under the Best International Feature category.

The Disciple explores how Sharad diligently treads along the traditions of his guru and his father to achieve absolute excellence. Will his journey of devotion and passion result in him attaining the success he is searching for?
