Writer turned director turned actor turned producer Rakesh Chaturvedi had made his directorial debut with a film called Bolo Ram and now his next film is BHK Bhalla@Halla.Kom that apart he has 2 more projects tucked up his sleeves which have been tentatively titled as Tandon Marega Sala & Sorry Chachoo respectively. And which will go on the floors soon enough.
Describe your directorial experiences between your debut film Bolo Raam & your 2nd directorial outing namely BHK Bhalla@Halla.Kom?
Actually speaking I feel that it is the genre which is different in both the films which made me to have a different experiences all the time But of course the rest of the directorial process was the same.
So what is your latest directorial offering BHK Bhalla@Halla.Kom all about?
Frankly speaking my latest offering BHK Bhalla@Halla.Kom is a movie which will make us to think what happens sometimes when our society norms put us on test.
Does the film BHK Bhalla@Halla.Kom offer any message?
Yes it does and that is, the quest for more is never ending. So we have to choose precisely what we want between our need & our greed, otherwise we will never grow and the situation will be keep throwing us in the same circle. Needless to say I am trying to say the same thing in my latest directorial offering namely BHK Bhalla@Halla.Kom, but of course not in a preachy sort of way but very subtly tickling the audience’s ribs with an unconventional climax and it will be totally depending on person to person as to what he or she gains from BHK Bhalla@Halla.Kom at the end.
Was there any reference point to make BHK Bhalla@Halla.Kom or you observed this as part of a society?
To be absolutely frank I had myself, experienced the basic idea of this film several times in my personal as well as professional life.
As a creative individual, were you always interested in production & direction or even acting?
To answer this query let me rearrange the order of subjects in your question. So here is how it goes, acting, writing, direction & production! I hope you got the answer according to the order of the subjects of your question.
So tell us how was the experience when you were assisting Rahul Dholakia during the making of Parzania?
Actually speaking I had joined Rahul Dholakia as a casting director in Parzania but Rahul Dholakia & Parzania blessed me to experience the varied parts of film making and also injected an interest of writing & direction in my veins.
By the way do you still pursue theatre as you have also done theatre and have been a National School of Drama student.
Yes I do. I still do exclusive theatre with Naseeruddin Shah’s theatre group Motley as an actor and will keep doing it unconditionally.
It seems that you have also assisted well known talented writers and also written several Hindi films. So what interests you the most, writing, direction or production?
The only thing that really interests or rather excites me the most is good concepts or good ideas or any relevant situation that really provokes me to do writing, direction or production. I really put my best efforts in each & every department when it comes to giving my voice for anything which is important to say.
So After BHK Bhalla@Halla.Kom, What is next on your agenda? And are you planning any projects of late?
Yup, I am indeed planning 2 more projects which are soon going on the floors back to back, and both of them are tentatively titled Tandon Marega Sala & Sorry Chachoo respectively.
Will your next 2 projects also be based on comic lines?
I personally think that you can say so, but this time they will border on 2 totally different patterns of comedy. To make it more clear one of the fIlm will be a comic thriller and the other film will be based on satirical take off. Now you keep guessing which of the 2 forthcoming films of mine will be based on which pattern.
