In the romantic comedy Ginny Weds Sunny, the viewers will get to see Vikrant Massey loosen up and have some enjoyable. Also starring Yami Gautam, who is understood for getting underneath the pores and skin of her characters, the movie has had a digital launch on Netflix. In a dialog with indianexpress.com, Vikrant and Yami opened up on working in a rom-com, the type of marriage ceremony ceremony they want and a lot extra.
Here are excerpts from the dialog:
Vikrant, I don’t imagine we have now seen you in an out and out rom-com earlier than. What was it like to play the lead in such a area?
Vikrant: To be trustworthy, as a lot as I was considering that it is going to be enjoyable to work in a style like this, it was too arduous. It’s robust as a result of inherently I don’t have a sense of vainness. So, it was very tough for me to be continuously conscious of the truth that I would like to look good, which doesn’t come naturally to me.
But all these issues took a backseat after I befriended Yami on the second or third day of the shoot. I feel the time I spent together with her whereas taking pictures for the movie surpassed all of the stress I had. Working with this loopy lady (Yami) on this loopy movie was unbelievable. We had been having enjoyable on a regular basis. I dearly cherish these days.
What form of marriage ceremony would you need?
Vikrant: I feel Yami might be good to reply this query as a result of no matter she’s going to say, it’s precisely how my marriage ceremony would occur.
Yami: Yeah (smiles), the explanation for that’s that Sheetal belongs to the identical place as I do. So, although Masseyji is my good friend, for me it’s at all times going to be like “humaare shehar ki ladki hai jiski shaadi ho rahi hai” (He’s marrying a lady from my city). She’s a pretty lady and so fairly! I was wanting ahead to assembly her formally however due to the pandemic, it couldn’t occur. When it comes to the marriage, again in our city, it’s at all times a small affair with no taam-jhaam (frills).
Vikrant: It isn’t going to be an Instagram marriage ceremony (laughs). The marriage ceremony occurs at residence with everybody in presence. There’s a robust sense of group there.
Yami: So yeah, that’s how Masseyji will get married and even I’d, as and after I discover a groom for myself (laughs).
What made you say sure to Ginny Weds Sunny, contemplating rom-com is a well-watched style, and all attainable themes of the style have already been explored earlier than?
Yami: I feel there’s a dearth of romantic-comedies in the present day. I liked the script and the story of Ginny Weds Sunny. I liked the characters and the distinction between Ginny and Sunny. I believed it is going to be a good movie to do after taking part in intense characters in my earlier movies. I needed to do this movie for myself.
Also, after I received to know that Vikrant is taking part in the a part of Sunny, I was so relieved as a result of he’s an unbelievable actor. With any movie or a character, there’s a tendency for it to flip cliched however with Vikrant on board, I knew he would add a lot to the character. Your half work as an actor turns into straightforward when you might have a workforce with the proper intentions, proper casting and proper technicians on board. I knew this may be enjoyable.
Vikrant: I was very consciously in search of a script, and I was going via a lot of romantic comedies at the moment. As Yami mentioned, romantic comedies or the staple weight-reduction plan of what used to be Indian leisure is vanishing, which has many causes. I had been doing very intense films within the final two-three years, which was very consuming. To be trustworthy, it was taking a toll on me and the atmosphere of my home as a result of I tend to deliver work residence. So, it was a conscious decision to do one thing which is comparatively simpler, a massy movie with songs and dance, which we’re used to watching as our staple of leisure. That’s when this script got here from Sumit Arora and Navjot Gulati, who occur to be my good associates.
Since you guys had been a part of profitable TV exhibits. What do you might have to say about in the present day’s TV exhibits? And would you ever contemplate selecting a TV mission within the close to future?
Yami: I haven’t adopted tv nor am I conscious of its content material. Even after I was working, I didn’t get to watch my very own present as a result of I didn’t have the time. But there’s one present known as Bhabhi Ji Ghar Pe Hain which my household loves to watch. The present has some tremendous actors and really humorous content material. As far as going again to tv is worried, I don’t know if the artistic work I’m in search of suits on this world. But as they are saying, by no means say by no means since you would possibly discover one thing so fascinating that blows you away. Like when Mr Amitabh Bachchan made his (TV) debut with KBC, it was a historic second. That present reached and related so many individuals. So, you by no means know what would possibly come up.
Vikrant: I observe tv very repeatedly. I additionally observe as a result of some issues trouble me. Because I’ve achieved tv for 10 years, my soul nonetheless belongs to that platform. I really imagine I’m what I’m due to it. But it’s a very disheartening situation and I’ve admitted this earlier too. Considering the type of regressive content material we’re seeing on tv, no less than when it comes to day by day soaps, I don’t see myself being a a part of such a narrative. I wouldn’t need to generalise however a majority of them are like that. It was one of many explanation why I give up tv. I’m hopeful we’ll revisit the wonderful days of Nukkad, Byomkesh Bakshi, Buniyaad or Mirza Ghalib or the instances when good content material was being made.
