Auteur director Sudhir Mishra who returns to direction after five years in Daas Dev, his revisionist adaptation of Sarat Chandra Chatterjee’s Devdas, says there is no catfights between his Chandramukhi and Paro.
There are reports of the two actresses Aditi Rao Hydari and Richa Chadha refusing to promote the film together.
But Sudhir laughs off these reports of a rumoured skirmish , arguing that fights between two leading actresses(Sharmila Tagore-Raakhee Gulzar in Daag, Mala Sinha-Sharmila Tagore in Humsaaya,Shabana Azmi-Smita Patil in Arth) are a thing of the past.
“Both Aditi and Richa are thorough professionals and they love the film more than they love themselves. So no. There is no fight between them. The reason they won’t be promoting the film together is because Aditi will be shooting for Mani Ratnam in Hyderabad and Richa will be in Lucknow.So here’s what we will do. Aditi promotes the film on that side of the world, and Richaon this side. In this way we cover more territory, don’t you think?” reasons Sudhir
So is Sudhir nervous about how audiences receive his film?
“Well, we are finally releasing the film on April 20, alongside Majid Majidi’s Beyond The Clouds.Am I nervous? After 11 feature films, should I be nervous?” Sudhir asks
