Speaking about working with his father, actor Satya Manjrekar said: “From childhood my father has been my idol and my inspiration – as an actor and a director. I’ve watched his craft carefully all these years and how well he directs a story and also plays it as an actor. There are few people who have these two supreme talents and my father is one of them – talented but humble. His hard work and struggles have always inspired me to be more like him. During the shooting of 1962: The War In The Hills, it was a very comfortable working environment; I could easily ask him a lot of questions and also observed that the entire cast of the show was equally comfortable with him as a director. Being on set really made me feel at home when I worked with him.
Satya Manjrekar plays the role of a young Gopal army soldier in the battalion led by Major Suraj Singh (Abhay Deol). Hotstar Specials Presents 1962: War in the Hills is slated for release February 26, 2021 only on Disney + Hotstar VIP and Disney + Hotstar Premium.
