Tellychakkar got in touch with the director and got to know some interesting insights.

What was the experience like shooting for such a crime thriller?

“I think the story itself was so interesting and intriguing. We shot this during the lockdown so it had its own challenges. Making a film in those conditions and then getting a theatrical release, it has been an amazing journey. This film has had its own ups and downs. But finally it is out in the theaters and I am so glad about the response. It feels great that we tried to bring something different to the people.”

The film has a stellar cast. What was it like working with such amazing talents?

“When you have an R Madhavan saying yes to a film, it kind of validates the fact that you have written something out of the box and that it’s not a regular film. The biggest victory for me was getting him on board. Once he said yes, my producers got a lot of confidence. Khushali then came on board. I took her audition and I thought that she had something really intriguing and fresh about her. I knew she would add so much to the story. Then the surprise package which I always knew was Aparshakti Khurana. I think between Aparshakti and Khushali, we hit a sixer. Talking about Darshan, I think he is one of the most genuine and hard working actors. He brings in a lot of effort and positivity to the set and the character.”

How was the idea for the plot of Dhokha generated?

“I did an action thriller film “Prince” in 2010. After that I took a sabbatical and stopped filming. Then I thought, why not take everything away that I got so spoiled within Prince and do a one day’s story located in a house. The only tools I had were pure content and acting. That’s where the gem came from and I kept challenging myself while developing the plot.”
