Divya Dutta does a Meena Kumari
In today’s techno world when black and white movies are being converted into color, Bollywood now also seems to be going the ‘Schindler’s List’ way.
Yes, ‘Chehre’ will be one such film to be made in black-and-white totally.
The film casts Divya Dutta sporting a look similar to that of yester year actress Meena Kumari.
Directed by debutant Rohit Kaushik, ‘Chehre’ is a suspense thriller and is set in the backdrop of 50’s era. The story revolves around lives of two sisters. The movie is almost complete and in its Post Production and will be releasing soon.
Divya Dutta, said: “I am very excited about this movie. I have been a huge fan of stalwarts like Meena Kumari Ji and Nutan Ji. Playing a character based in 50’s for a black and white movie was like stepping into their shoes.
“But I am glad that directors are coming up with innovative ideas and interesting subjects these days and are ready to experiment with the look of the film, as per the demands of script. When I heard that the film was not in colour and Black & White Instead, I was taken aback, but I immediately said yes as I knew it was one of its kind film.”
The film is also a comeback for Manisha Koirala who is in a pivotal role in the film, playing one of the sisters along with Divya.
Now we will have to wait and watch whether in this commercialized world of global cinema, such an experiment will be worth to lure audience or not.
