Tanushree Dutta has cast her name in the book of Bollywood history by being the first mainstream actress from India to have acted in a Warner Bros. film. As the production house opens its channels for Bollywood, SAAS BAHU AUR SENSEX turns out to be their first ever outing in India.
Says Tanushree, ''This is the first film which Warner Bros. is backing in India and my experience with them has been great since Day One. I was impressed by their entire approach towards things and the manner they conduct themselves. One must not forget that they have decades of movie making experience behind them and this is the very reason why they are so organized.''
Shedding some more light about the factors that have impressed her about one of the biggest Hollywood movie making houses, Tanushree adds, ''They are movie giants and quite disciplined. I like the kind of movies they are backing because SAAS BAHU AUR SENSEX isn't one of your run of the mill nonsensical tales. It isn't a case of unnecessary hype with no substantial content to back it up.''
Declaring her love for the film, Tanushree says in a firm tone, ''These are the kind of films that should be made in India. Director Shona Urvashi knows what she is talking about and her narrative makes complete sense.''
One gets an impression that the film has a Hrishikesh Mukherjee/Basu Chatterjee flavor to it. How far is this true?
''I guess it would be unfair to compare a two film old director (Shona) with greats like Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee'', says Tanushree, ''Yes, what Shona has succeeded in doing though is keeping the light hearted flavor of the narrative intact. In any case, now that the movie is out, it is for all to see how well she had done the job.''
