Indian painters ride in Europe to find Swedish wives, and the legendary love story moves the whole network
The focus is set to star mark and not miss every push in 2010.
Bollywood’s top producer, Sanjay Rilla Bansally, 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 production teams from France, the United Kingdom and other countries.
A few years later, Indian superstar Dave Patel, the hero of Slumdog Millionaire, has decided to play the role of the character prototype.
However, the film has not yet started.
The 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 an Indian man riding his bicycle to Sweden to find love was soon adapted into a movie made by movie fans.
“This is an almost fantasy love epic, enough to make you doubt its authenticity.” In the 1970s, the Indian low-caste man Pradyumna Kumar Mahanandia crossed 6000 miles on his bicycle to Gothenburg, Sweden, to find the girl Charlotte Von Schedvin who fell in love at first sight.
Over the past 45 years, the couple loved each other as before, and their children Siddhartha and Emily have grown up.
Their stories have been repeated by many media such as National Geographic and the Daily Mail.
Mahanandia was born in a poor village in eastern India and belongs to the low-caste Dalit people.
Unlike the weaver’s parents, Mahanandia has shown amazing talent in painting since childhood.
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 are not long.
Due to insufficient tuition fees, Mahanandia dropped out of school halfway and has a long way to go.
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.
During the former Soviet heroine astronaut Valentina Tereshkova’s visit to India at the invitation of Mahatma Gandhi, Mahanandia, who was painting at the station, brightened the delegation’s eyes.
Mahanandia had the honor to draw 10 portraits of Valentina at the invitation of the Indo-Soviet Association.
When his works appeared on television, Mahanandia became famous overnight in Delhi.
At the same time, the portrait of Gandhi that he painted once again made him famous.
He was able to enter the Delhi Academy of Art to study and, with the permission of the authorities, regularly sat in the Connaught Square to paint for the travelling people.
It is also under this opportunity that the god of love comes quietly.
On December 17, 1975, a day Mahanandia will never forget, a girl with blonde hair and blue eyes sat in front of his easel, making him lose his language instantly.
“I have never seen an eye that can see through the heart like this.
My hand with the pen is trembling.
I dare not look directly into her eyes.
I feel naked in front of her,” Mahanandia told National Geographic.
He asked the girl if she could come back tomorrow because she was in a panic.
In this way, he had the first agreement in his life.
Mahanandia spent the most difficult night in his life, and he repeatedly recalled what his childhood mother had said.
In India, when a newborn comes to Earth, parents usually ask the astrologer.
Mahanandia was told that he would have an extraordinary fate: he could not be arranged by his family.
His wife came from a distant land, was born in Taurus, was the master of the forest, had the attribute of a musician, and might be good at playing flute.
The next day, when 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.
She also told her mood in detail in an interview with National Geographic.
On December 17, 1975, Charlotte, a 19-year-old girl strolling in Connaught Square, just got off a public bus, which was the necessary car for the hippie road trip.
This car, carrying four young people and a baby, drove all the way from Sweden to India 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 the Indian concert and watched the tribal dance performance in Orissa (later learned that this is Mahanandia’s hometown).
I decided to go here immediately.
That is why I came to India.” “When I arrived at the square, I noticed the romantic artist sitting in front of the fountain at a glance.
His hair was curly and his eyes were clear.
I asked him if he could draw a picture for me.
He showed a kind smile and his teeth were white.” Charlotte recalled that he had a wonderful feeling when he first met.
The next day’s appointment, the seeds of love took root and sprouted.
Mahanandia invited Charlotte to visit his hometown, where Charlotte felt the tribal customs of Orissa with her own eyes, and the wonderful music and ceremony made her dream like a dream.
After 2-3 weeks together, Mahanandia proposed to his beloved girl.
Charlotte, 19, was not intimidated by this choice, but for practical reasons, she had to return to Sweden to continue her life.
Even so, Charlotte and Mahanandia still held a wedding under the guidance of relatives and friends, as a witness of their eternal love.
In the year after their separation, the couple had been exchanging letters, and their love had only increased in their hearts.
