Vyjayanthimala returns to arclights after 42 years
Last seen in 1970 release 'Ganwaar', the 76-year-old will be seen in a two to three minutes' video to be played before the film, which talks about how to save cobra bitten children in villages.
'Janleva 555' has been made to support and help acquire ventilator systems for the hospitals, said the veteran actress and added: "First of all it is a great thought and it's very useful for the people in the villages, and especially children, who die of snake bites."
"This kind of ventilator system to save children dying of snake bites is a very noble task and I appreciate this work. I wish the makers of the film all the success and I request everybody to please watch the film because it will be one of its kind," the actress said in a statement.
The film has been produced by Kalpana Pandit, who is also playing a pivotal role in the film.
"There can be no bigger blessing for my maiden home production 'Janleva 555' than receiving the good wishes of the first original superstar of Indian Cinema. The fact that her (Vyjayanthimala's) ancestral city was also where I hail from, the beautiful garden city of Mysore, made it all the more special," Pandit told us.
She added: "She has given a social message in a special video, which will be shown before the beginning of the film. The two to three minutes' video of superstar Vyjayanthimala will have a critical medical message for cobra bitten children. I can't reveal much about the subject. You will understand it once you will watch the film."
'Janleva 555' also features Anant Nag and Akash Hora and is scheduled for an October 19 release.
