In this fast-paced lifestyle, many IT professionals have forgotten to understand the importance of living life wholeheartedly. In a bid to make them realise this, director Pramod Joshi is now making a movie on the topic. Titled Chhodo Kal Ki Baatein, his film has completed its shooting and is ready for release this month.
Recently, the director held a press meet to share his wonderful moments and experiences while making the film. Talking to the media, Pramod Joshi said, "For the first time, Anupam Kher is reprising the role of a visually impaired man and he is only the person who convinced me for this role.”
The story of Anupam Kher’s strong blind characterisation is very interesting! On the first day of shoot, Pramod Gajanan Joshi did not know what came to his mind. When just 15 minutes before the shooting, Anupam Kher told the director that he wanted his character of a social commentator to be blind!
“When Anupam ji told me about this thought, it’s true that I was completely taken aback. He then understood my side and asked to hold the shoot for an hour just to think about it. Still I was not getting convinced since we have been working on the script from 4 months,” said Pramod Gajanan Joshi.
The director added, “My query was simple: How can you make such a vital change? Then we sat and had discussion and during which he actually enacted the scene in our room, which was ready for the shoot outside. This exercise was encouraging enough to make me understand what he was trying to convey. And the line thought occurred in my mind - a blind person giving vision to normal person.”
Pramod Joshi further said, “Luckily for next 7 days, we were supposed to shoot a song sequence and after which the next schedule was planned with a gap of one month. So, I had time to make necessary changes in the script. We did this and they worked wonderfully. In fact, Anupam was so involved in the character and he truly believed that this change will definitely work. And I’m happy he convinced me about it.”
