‘Yeh Saali Zindagi is my happiest film’
Known for his intense films like
Hazaron Khwaishen Aisi
Khoya Khoya Chand
(2007) Sudhir Mishra is turning a new leaf with a quirky romantic thriller. Mishra says his next film,
Yeh Saali Zindagi
, is his “happiest film”. The film features Chitrangada Singh, with Irrfan Khan and newbie Arunoday Singh.
“This film explores the extent to which people will go for the woman or man they love. It’s about the unpredictability of life and love,” says Mishra. Mishra, who launched Singh in
Hazaron Khwaishen Aisi
, says he “takes pride in his find.” “She is a brilliant actress,” he adds. Singh plays a young girl who is “selfish, yet honest”. Her character was in love with Irrfan’s character first but moves on when he doesn’t show interest. But when Irrfan realises his mistake and comes back to her, it’s too late.
Chitrangada Singh says she likes the complexities of her character and enjoyed working with Irrfan Khan. “I play this selfish yet honest girl with shades of grey. Her lover is a goon and she is ready to go to any extent to help him. She is not conniving. She is straight forward with Irrfan and tells him if he loves her, he should help her find her boyfriend,” she says.
Talking about his lead pair, Mishra is convinced that the duo share a subtle chemistry. He adds, “Irrfan’s character is so caught up in his own issues he doesn’t respond to her until she finds another man. When they confront the newness of their relationship status, there’s the regret of a missed opportunity.” The film was mostly shot in the Chandni Chowk and Karol Bagh neighbourhoods of Delhi, and in a rustic village on the outskirts of the city.
After this, Mishra has
