MUMBAI: Producer Smita Thackarey is kicked about her next production, Kaise Kahein, which will release next week. A youth oriented story, it stars newbies Rajveer Dutt and Neha Jhulka.
What’s more, Thackarey is also mulling over a film on her father-in-law Bal Thackarey. She adds, â€œOnce, I told him to tell me about the incidents in his life on which I could make a movie.â€ So is she seriously planning a film on him? â€œYes, I would love to. I donâ€™t know when, but I will make one. Everyone knows him as a political figure; Iâ€™ll project the true Balasaheb Thackarey.â€
Says Thackarey, â€œAfter doing two comedy films, (Haseena Maan Jayengi and Sandwich), I wanted to test another genre. Mohit Hussein (director) came up with a brilliant script of how love gets sidelined when career becomes priority. And this is to be seen among the youth today, so everyone will be able to relate to it.â€
On being asked about making a film on politics, she says, â€œItâ€™s more of dirty politics today. It has not inspired me as yet.â€
About Ram Gopal Vermaâ€™s Sarrkar, the movie based on Balasaheb Thackareyâ€™s life, she feels the character was not even remotely similarly to her father-in-law. â€œExcept for a few incidents, there was nothing similar between the character and him. For that matter, even the other members of my family had no resemblance with the characters. I think it was more of a media hype, which was an added advantage for the film maker.â€
