Sooni Taraporewala gives you immense freedom as an actor, says Filmmaker Takesh Singh

MUMBAI: Takesh Singh, an Actor and Filmmaker, who has acted in projects like Mission Mangal, Selection Day, The Tashkent Files, Manto, and many others recently, had the honor to work with Sooni Taraporewala, the screenwriter of films like The Namesake and Salaam Bombay. Sooni directed the Netflix original film “Yeh Ballet” in which Takesh is playing a role. During the shooting Sooni used to joke with Takesh that his bearded look reminded her son of a character from Game of Thrones.

On talking about the experience of working with Sooni, Takesh expressed, that “she is a dream to work with. She gives you immense freedom to perform and is extremely clear about what she wants from the character which is a great help for any actor. Sooni has a calm demeanour and if something didn’t work with her she would point it out in a very polite manner. Shooting with her was like a picnic on set and with a leader like Sooni there was amazing positive energy throughout the unit. Playing an upmarket snob, which is very unlike what I am in reality, was something that intrigued me and there was no way I could pass off a chance to work with Sooni Taraporewala. I am very thankful to the team at Tess Joseph Casting for casting me in this gem of a film”, adds Takesh

On being asked why he chose to direct this particular film, he commented “The subject is something that is uncannily similar to what has happened to me in the past. Mistaken identity is one of the underlying themes of the film and I have experienced something like was in the story for real. The script also is very funny and intriguing at the same time, and the ending is heartwarming. When the story was narrated to me, it really connected. I knew I had to direct this”.
