The movie had first been screened at the Venice Film Festival last year and since then it has received accolades in all international film festivals. On his expectations from the movie, Anurag said, “I am going with a blind eye for this movie and I am expecting the audiences to do the same. We have been deliberately sitting on the movie for past one year because I wanted an international release for this film. I didn’t want Indian distributors to sell it as a sex movie because it is not one. Only when Viacom 18 decided to become a part of it, we knew it was in the right hands.”
After the screening there was a Q&A session was held with the director and the lead actors when audiences bombarded Anurag and Kalki with various questions. Most of them wanted to know the various elements that the director used in the movie and he was gracious enough to explain the nuances of being a filmmaker and how it’s not important to get in to the technicalities, but to go with the flow.
On the other hand Kalki, who was also present (minus her yellow boots!), explained how she prepared herself for the character of Ruth (her character name in the movie). “As I have co-written the story with Anurag, it was simpler for me to get into the character. Other than that, I prepared a playlist for the kind of songs that I thought Ruth will listen to. It was mostly grunge and Muse type of songs. I would listen to them while shooting and I distanced myself from others to get into the character,” confesses Kalki.
Anurag Kashyap has been a part of SHAMIANA since its inception. When asked about his relationship with SHAMIANA, he claims, “SHAMIANA is like family to me, I have been with them for the past 10 years and their first screening was of a play written by me.”
