Tanushree Dutta and Neetu Chandra starrer APARTMENT is up for release this Friday and there is much curiosity value building up around this thriller which has surprisingly been in news more for its perceived sex element rather than the thriller quotient that it carries.
Though director Jag Mundhra insists that the film has nothing to do with sex, he doesn't deny the fact that there would be portions in the film where his leading ladies would be uninhibited in front of the camera.
"If there are young women living in an apartment, they would not be sitting in their house coats, right? Of course they would be in their lingerie; they are young girls after all. Having said that, APARTMENT is not about sex", Mundhra comments with caution.
Mundhra is extremely happy with the way his leading ladies have performed in the film and as per him; the hallmark of a confident performer is to be completely uninhibited in front of camera.
"Just because there is a camera, one should not get conscious. For example, it would look really unreal if you show someone taking a shower with full clothes on. Tell me, who does that", questions Mundhra.
Talking about the thriller element of APARTMENT, Mundhra adds, "My last big release PROVOKED [starring Aishwarya Rai] was a drama but APARTMENT isn't one. Instead it is a slick thriller where one girl is a tormentor (Neetu Chandra) and another (Tanushree Dutta) a victim. It is a very entertaining and well paced film. There have been so many films about the fear of the unknown. Now watch out for something different because this one is based on the fear of the known."
