In 2001, Randeep Hooda had started his career with Monsoon Wedding. In the film he had a small but significant role to play. Interestingly, the film was helmed by a female director, Meera Nair. Now 8 years later, Randeep is seen in Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaye (MKMJA)and after a long gap and a time frame that saw Randeep working only with male film makers, the actor is back with a female director Madhureeta Anand.
"And please note that I am in love with both my directors," quips Randeep who is looking at a flurry of releases in 2009, ''The fact that I am being directed by a woman is a different experience altogether. My first movie was by Mira Nair and now it is Madhureeta Anand - man, I am lucky!''
Getting serious he goes on to point out quite some similarities in the two ladies. ''Both of them have a similar background to them since they started off with making documentary films. When it comes to work, they both have the same kind of enthusiasm. They both are in the thick of things and always have ready answers for any questions that you may have for them. Also, not to forget that they have similar (and wonderful) eyes'', he winks.
He is extremely happy with the way Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaye has shaped up. ''This is one film which is very urban, very funny and quite fantastical. Madhureeta has spun such an original screenplay for the film and there is a definite original thought behind it. The film has a bit of everything, whether it is humour, satire, drama, fantasy, music or romance. It is one entertainer that you want your beloved to watch with you'', he concludes with a smile.
