SHOR - IN THE CITY is up for release and it is obvious that the film is an all-male show, what with the promos being entirely focused on Tusshar Kapoor, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Nikhil Dwivedi and Pithobash Tripathy. One wonders if it is pretty much intentional that women in the story have been kept on the back-foot here. Or is there some surprise element in store? After all there are just two women here and while Radhika Apte (Tusshar's leading lady) still has a song (Saibo) to her credit, Preeti Desai (opposite Sendhil) is being seen and heard only in her interviews.
"Well, let me not deny that essentially SHOR... is about three male characters and their respective stories. It is not the story about these women. However what I can say with confidence is that both Radhika and Preeti have an equal footage here," Tusshar sets the records straight.
One wonders whether his 'good friend' Radhika would be too happy with the revelation here. Though one waits to see what really happens on the screens for the couple, how has Tusshar's personal equation been with Radhika in the recent times? After all reports haven't really died down about their romantic rendezvous ever since the film's promotion began.
"Of course she is quite good in her act and that's the reason why she is in the film. What more did you want to hear", smiles Tusshar, "Having said that she is a lot of fun off the camera and is a different person when not on sets. She is a very bubbly girl and fun to be with. I enjoy her company."
Ahem ahem, well Tusshar, isn't that what everyone says at the start?
