For someone who has worked with Sudhir Mishra in two films now (with TERA KYA HOGA JOHNY coming after KHOYA KHOYA CHAND), Soha believes that the film maker (who shot to fame decades back with DHARAVI and later IS RAAT KI SUBAH NAHI) has a knack of extracting wonderful performances from relatively new actors.
"I have always heard him saying that he likes working with new faces and bringing to fore an altogether fresh perspective of story telling", says Soha, "In my case also, I truly believe that this holds good. Also, when Neil and Shahana signed the film, they too had just joined the industry. I am sure they too must have cherished the experience of working with Sudhir."
The film tells the story of a boy called Johnny who comes across various people from different walks of life. Other than Soha and Neil, the major protagonists in the film are Kay Kay Menon and Shahana Goswami. In fact going by the promos, TERA KYA HOGA JOHNNY appears to be an interesting drama with a touch of humour to it.
Agrees Soha, "I think you are right here. Every film becomes more entertaining when there are different shades to the narrative. So yes, TERA KYA HOGA JOHNNY doesn't turn dark since there is a dose of humour interspersed into it. The film has stories which show various facets of someone's personality, be it ambition, greed, betrayal or trust. This is not a film where we see a regular hero-heroine drama out there. I guess a tag of 'being different' definitely comes along with this film. But then the subject matter never gets heavy either."
Well, we would wait for 31st December (when the film releases) to check this out for ourselves.
