She has always essayed serious award-winning roles, and yet, her husband and acclaimed film-maker Ketan Mehta admits that it is her sense of humor that has contributed a lot to the marriage remaining so firm through life's roller-coaster ride.
It is this same Deepa Sahi's uncanny sense of humor and looking at life as an adventure in the lighter spirit prompted her to make TERE MERE PHERE her maiden feature film. Says she, 'Two things are exciting in life, love and war. I thought let us combine love and war. Love begins from childhood and till your grave, you are constantly dealing with it. I think people should kind of take a perspective and identification with the film because it deals with various kind of love especially between men and women because that is the ultimate kind of love.'
Why Himalayas? 'Well, it is unpredictable as weddings. So beautiful on instant, clouded the next. A hill on one side, a 14000 feet fall on the other... And you find locations from Google earth, make your mark, get your scenes in place and yet, with every move, shoot something else that is either more beautiful or enchanting.'
And drawing juxtaposition with marriage, Deepa has sure done a wonderful takeoff. Here is looking out for TERE MERE PHERE, produced by Ketan Mehta and Anup Jalota and directed by Deepa Sahi.
