While it is a known fact that APARTMENT is a contemporary psycho-thriller set amidst life in a metropolis, there is also another interesting tale around how director Jagmohan Mundhra aspired for some real shock to translate on screen as well.
In the film, lead actress Neetu Chandra was required to shoot a scene where she had to enter her bedroom and get startled on switching the lights. Just as the scene begun and Neetu switched on the lights, she was actually shocked to see her mom right in front of her. Neetu has been living alone since the time she has moved to Mumbai to fulfill her dreams and due to her hectic schedules she had not got a chance to visit her family.
Informs a source attached to the film, "After interrogating, Neetu got to know that while she was getting ready in her vanity, Jag Mundhra, the director of APARTMENT spotted her mom and planned the whole thing. Neetu got an actual surprise and the director got the real expression."
Starring Tanushree Dutta, Rohit Roy and Anupam Kher in principal roles, APARTMENT is a cautionary tale for young urban professionals flocking to the cities, coupled with shortage of affordable housing makes them vulnerable as they take perilous chances by sharing their most intimate spaces with complete strangers. It's a story set in this milieu where what one should fear is not the 'unknown' but the 'known'.
Touted to be an edge of the seat thriller, the film releases all over on 23rd April.
