This Mountain Man laid the road through the mountain only by using hammer and chisel in memory of his wife, who had passed away by not getting proper medical treatment who could not even travel to the nearest hospital and it took a lot of time due to the mountain, as there was no road.

This movie is directed by Ketan Mehta and the Mountain Man’s role played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Dashrath Manjhi and his wife’s role is played by Radhika Apte. This movie is going to hit theaters from 21th of August.
