Actress Tisca Chopra felt an adrenaline rush while making her maiden production "Chutney". She says making a film is one of the biggest drugs possible. The Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films' project released on the digital platform earlier this week and was viewed five million times in less than 48 hours. Talking about the short film, which was mostly shot in old Delhi and Gurugram, Tisca told IANS,
"I felt that adrenaline rush. Now I understand what people used to say in the old days that so and so producer spent all his money on making a film. I used to wonder why would anyone risk his or her house for a film. I realise making a film is one of the biggest drugs possible. It gives such a high."
She further commented, "I would really like to do it again. It's liberating to do something in 15 minutes. Tell your tale and get out of there. When you push yourself in a new area and it's quite extreme in that sense. It's like an adventure. It's like I bungee jumped," said Tisca, who even acted in the short film that also stars Adil Hussain.
As of now, she is riding high on the success of "Chutney", which peeps into the seemingly moral world of the Indian middle class with its new aspirations of imported cars and organic food. "I used to perform this particular piece on the stage as an actor. It's been there in my head for about 15-16 years. And I am very familiar with the matter. Jyothi Kapoor Das has directed it. We wrote about 10 to 12 drafts because as an actor, I find that people don't focus enough on writing."
