Soon-to-be-released “U Me Aur Hum” really deserves that name. Looking at the project it seems Ajay and Kajol have decided to take care of all the fields of film making. Ajay is directing for the first time and he is directing Kajol.
Ajay-Kajol are acting in it. Kajol is debuting as producer with this film. Okay, no more introductions. It’s now the time for Kajol, me, you and the eve of music release of “U Me Aur Hum”.
Q.: Ajay Devgan directed Kajol. How was the experience?
Q.: You are the producer of the film. How was the chemistry between the director and the producer? Did you discuss the film in home also?
We used to chat and develop new ideas. And there was little chance of improvisation as we had a bound script to follow. Since we are in the stage of post production our discussion over the film has increased. Ajay speaks only about the film.
Q.: From acting to producing film. Would there be the next step of directing film?
And it’s obvious that if principal is not disciplined then school goes haywire. He made sure everyone on the sets feel who the captain of the ship was. He has a completely different working pattern.
Well, for the record though he was the director of the film I was also the producer so he couldn’t scold me (smiling). He was so clear with his ideas that he never got a chance to reprimand me.
Q.: Vishal Bharadwaj sang the title track of the film. How do you think the music will work?
The album has lovely tracks for the audience. There is a slow romantic number, a naughty number and a fast Punjabi track. So it is a mix of everything so that people of every taste can enjoy that.
Q.: As an actress what kind of roles are you looking forward to?
As for my roles I am completely dependant on the scripts. It has to be a good script and a good director must be ready to direct that. I won’t say yes unless I like the script.
Q.: Did Nyasa come to the sets of U Me Aur Hum? How does she enjoy your earlier films?
When she is around on the set my motherly instinct comes forward and that prevents me concentrating on my work. (Smiling) I tried showing her my films. You know, when she sees me crying she starts crying too and asks us to change the channel. She can’t tolerate tears in my eyes.
Maybe she will enjoy my films when she grows up and can understand that I am just acting.
Q.: Do you think the coming back of married heroines in the film is a trend now?
Films on different subjects are being experienced. I think I am lucky to be in such an age where I can experiment on different kinds of films. It’s now no more a 16 year old heroine’s leading time.
