Renu Saluja who died tragically young, was not only one of the finest editors of Indian cinema, she was also an extremely hindered spirit who happened to be married to director Sudhir Mishra when her premature end came.
To hear that Sudhir Mishra was making a film on Renu Suluja’s life was of great interest to all the fans of serious cinema.
However the news is not entirely true.
Explains Sudhir, “No, I am not making a bio-pic on Renu’s life. That would be too much information and experience to accommodate on one film.What I am doing is something more manageable. I am taking one very important incident that happened in Renu’s life towards the end, and making a film based on that incident. While focusing on that incident I hope to bring out various aspects of her life.”
While Aditi Rao will play Renu Saluja, Sudhir has not decided on who will play him.
“But it won’t be me. I won’t act and direct. It won’t be a star.Because a star will be consciously ACTING the part of my character. It will be an actor , someone who can play me without the baggage of stardom,” promises Sudhir.
He begins shooting for the Renu Saluja film in November.
