Amcha Bucket List 😎

I recently saw the Marathi movie Bucket List starring Madhuri Dixit. It was great to see her do a full fledged Marathi movie for the first time in her career, but more than that it is the happiness of seeing mainstream Bollywood actors contribute to regional cinema. Be it actors like Nana Patekar (who has…
