However, this journey of the man and goat will be one which will bring in a new insight in the man’s life and how this new friend (goat) will give him few new learnings of life will form the crux of the story…The movie stars Sandip Pathankar, Usha Naik, Sneha Wagh and Suhas Palshikar in the main cast.
The movie has been shot in Sholapur and Bhimashankarunder telling weather conditions during rains in order to capture the lush green landscape to the fullest.
Baishakhi who has served the Indian TV industry for a long time has been a successful Creative Director on the small screen. She has also been involved in writing dialogues and lyrics. Baishaki and her husband Deepak won a National Award for Family Values for their short film ‘Heyro Party’ in the year 2014.

When contacted, Baishakhi told IndianWikiMedia.com, “It has been complete hard work for the last few years. Sharad is a good friend and it was great to join hands with him for the movie. The Goat (IDAK) has been shot under extreme weather conditions, and shooting with an animal in the main role is not easy at all. The initial response for the movie is promising and we look forward to the premiere at MAMI on 16 October.”
Wishing the team of IDAK all the very best!!
