In 2010, top Bollywood producer Sanjay Lila bansali announced to the media that he would bring a real transnational love story to the screen, which has now stood out from the bidding of French, British and other multinational production teams.
A few years later, Indian superstar Dave Patel, the hero of Slumdog Millionaire, has decided to play the character prototype.
However, the film has not yet started.
The press trust of India (PTI) interviewed mahanandia’s daughter and asked why, but the result was unexpected: the parties and their families decided not to sell the film and television adaptation rights to maintain the sanctity of this love story.
“We never promised any film and television production, but the voice never stopped.” The story of Indian men cycling to Sweden for love was soon adapted into a self-made movie by fans.
“This is an almost magical love epic, enough to make you doubt its authenticity.” In the 1970s, pradyumnakumarmahanandia, an Indian low caste man, rode a bicycle over 6000 miles to Gothenburg, Sweden, to find charlottevonschedvin, a girl who fell in love at first sight.
Over the past 45 years, the couple love each other as before, and their children Siddhartha and Emily have grown up.
Their stories have been repeatedly publicized by National Geographic, the daily mail and other media.
Mahanandia was born in a poor village in eastern India and is a Dalit of low caste.
Unlike her Weaver parents, mahanandia showed an amazing talent for painting from an early age.
After graduating from high school, mahanandia won a scholarship from Orissa and successfully entered the art college founded by the British.
However, the good times did not last long.
Due to insufficient tuition fees, mahanandia dropped out of school halfway, and the road ahead was boundless.
He would not return to the desperate village.
In the streets and railway stations of Delhi, he painted for a living, slept on the ground and became a wandering painter.
When the former Soviet Union’s heroine astronaut Valentina Tereshkova visited India at the invitation of Mahatma Gandhi, mahanandia, who was painting at the station, brightened the eyes of the visiting delegation.
Mahanandia was honored to be invited by the Indian Soviet association to paint 10 portraits of Valentina.
When his work appeared on television, mahanandia became famous overnight in Delhi.
At the same time, his portrait of Gandhi once again made him famous.
He was able to study at the Delhi Institute of art, and with the permission of the authorities, he regularly sat in Connaught square to paint for the travelling people.
It is also such an opportunity that the God of love comes quietly.
On December 17, 1975, a day mahanandia will never forget, a blonde girl sat in front of his easel, which made him lose his language instantly.
“I’ve never seen eyes so penetrating into my heart.
My hand holding the pen was shaking.
I didn’t dare to look directly into her eyes.
I was naked in front of her.” Mahanandia told National Geographic.
He was so frightened that he asked the girl if she could come back tomorrow.
In this way, he had the first agreement in his life.
Mahanandia had the most difficult night of his life.
He recalled what his mother had said in his childhood.
In India, when a newborn comes to earth, parents usually ask astrologers.
Mahanandia was told that he would have an extraordinary fate: he could not be arranged for marriage by his family.
His wife came from a distant land and was born in Taurus.
She is the master of the forest.
She has the attribute of a musician and may be good at playing flute.
The next day, the girl sat down in front of the easel.
Mahanandia blurted out a series of questions, all of which were answered one by one.
Charlotte, a music lover from Sweden, felt strange and interesting.
In an interview with national geographic, she also told her state of mind in detail.
On december17,1975, Charlotte, a 19-year-old girl strolling in Connaught square, just got off a Volkswagen bus, which is a must-have car for a hippie road trip.
The car, carrying four young people and a baby, drove all the way from Sweden to India in 22 days and nights and stopped near Connaught square.
“During that time, I participated in the work in London and came into contact with Indian culture.
I was deeply fascinated by it.
I listened to Indian concerts and watched tribal dance performances in Orissa (later learned that this is mahanandia’s hometown).
I decided to go here immediately.
That is the purpose of my coming to India.” “When I arrived at the square, I noticed the romantic artist sitting in front of the fountain.
His hair was curly and his eyes were clear.
I asked him if he could draw one for me.
He smiled kindly and his teeth were white.” Charlotte recalled that she had a wonderful feeling when she first met.
The appointment the next day, the seeds of love take root.
Mahanandia invited Charlotte to visit his hometown, where Charlotte experienced the tribal customs of Orissa with her own eyes.
The wonderful music and ceremonies made her dream like.
After 2-3 weeks, mahanandia proposed to his beloved girl.
Charlotte, 19, was not intimidated by the decision, but for practical reasons, she had to return to Sweden to continue living.
Even so, Charlotte and mahanandia still held their wedding under the auspices of their relatives and friends, as a witness of their eternal love.
For a year after their separation, the couple had been exchanging letters, and their love was only growing in their hearts..
