Ram Kamal Mukherjee: I went onto detailing over Esha’s look
Ram Kamal Mukhrjee an eminent former journalist and is best known for penning down unofficial biography of Hema Malini.Ram Kamal is making his debut as a director with cakewalk starring Esha Deol.
The story of the film revolves around a Bengali woman, Shilpa, who is passionate about baking and confectionary. However, she goes through a tussle between domestic bliss and pursuing her passion. Esha will be seen playing a Bengali character for the first time. The film was shot in Kolkata. It will have its world TV premiere on Rishtey Cineplex channel on February 17.
In conversation with Ram Kamal as he spills beans on roping in Esha for the film and what made him cast Esha in a non-glamorous role.
Ram says, “ I have known Esha and I saw spark in her, she has that charm and quality to get into a non-glamorous role. She has those sharp features like Hemaji and a striking personality like Dharmendraji. The reason the film took a little more time was she shot for few parts and got busy with personally then she again started to shoot.”
“As a filmmaker, this subject came in mind because this is one such topic which happens and how a homemaker balances her life and what happens next is the crux.” Adds the filmmaker.
When asked Ram was it a cakewalk for him to direct Esha to which he said, “I focused on the detailing of many things, including Esha's look as a Bengali bride in the film. She has a side to it which her fans will witness.”
Talking about other genres that intrigues the debut filmmaker, Ram avers, “ I like different genres, as an audience I watch films, and u want to cast actors whom people don’t expect to narrate such a story. My next is with Celina Jaitley and I am looking to it.”
Here’s wishing Ram Kamal all the very best.
