The youngest of the Kapoor clan (well, the Anil and Boney clan i.e.) Sanjay is back with his next flick Unns. Now more into doing smaller banner films, he is quite positive about his forthcoming film. Hope he strikes back with this flick.
What is the film Unns all about?
Unns is basically a love story between a husband and a wife. In this film I play the character of Rahul the husband who is madly in love with his wife. Rahul comes from a broken family and so he knows what harm a broken family can do to people and how it can affect the children in the family. Hence, he strongly believes in the institution of marriage and though unfortunately some serious problems come up in his own married life, at no cost does he want his marriage to break up. He understands and supports his wife through the tough times.
Is Unns somewhere similar to Dhadkan?
I haven't really watched Dhadkan completely but from the parts that I have seen, I can say that Unns is not at all like Dhadkan. Unns is more realistic in that manner. The situations in the film are from daily life. Besides the treatment of this film is also very different.
How was it working your co stars in the film?
I was really looking forward to working with Rituparna in this film because I had heard that she is a very fine actor and of course I knew that she was a national award winner. And when I started working with her for this film, I enjoyed every moment of it. In fact during our very first schedule in Goa, we got along very well because she is a very nice person. So it was a great experience working with her. As far as Sudhanshu goes, in this film we didn't have a scene together but I have seen his work and it is brilliant. He suits the character very well. Juhi Babbar comes from a very illustrious family of good actors and she has done a wonderful job in this film. I have done one court scene with Aman Verma in the film where he plays a lawyer and he spoke some really long lines in just one take for that shot. So that speaks volumes about his calibre as an actor.
Tell us about the director Mr. Bhupendra Gupta.
Though this is Mr.Bhupendra Gupta's first film as a director and producer he was as professional as one can be in the film making business. When he approached me for the film, he had the full script of the film ready with dialogues and songs recorded. He was absolutely sure of what he wanted from his actors and other crew members. And from my experience I can say that it's not very common to find such professional people.
What made you sign this film as it is made under a banner which is not established?
Well for me the reason for signing this film was the passion Bhupendraji had for making Unns. Though the banner is not an established one, I could see the professionalism in his work from perfectly written scripts and the exact understanding of what he wanted to make. So I think instead of just relating to big names, it is very important to work with some talented people irrespective of their recognition level in the industry because that is what will help in the long run to both the actor's career and the industry as well.
How is the music of Unns ?
I think this film has got some excellent music. My favourite song is the one picturised on me called Pal Pal which is very melodious. In fact this is the song with which I started shooting for this film.
What other movies are you working on?
After Unns, my next release will be Beach with Hrishitaa Bhatt. The film is been shot in Goa. Then I have completed a film called Why which is a comeback film for Sudhakar Bokade. Then I am starting a very interesting film called Thodi Masti Thodi Dhoom which is going to be a fun film.
