I Am 24: taking facts of life jocularly
Saurabh Shukla's new film I Am 24 is all set to release on 31 August. The film narrates the story of a balding writer who falls in love with a woman over the internet and their meeting thereafter. Shukla, who is himself bald, says that the story was easy to write as it is based on his real-life experience.
Relating an old story, Shukla talks about a female pen-friend while he was pursuing theatre in Delhi. “Once the girl dropped by in the city and evinced interest to meet me. But when she actually came, she was in shock to see me a bald man,” Shukla says.
Similarly, I Am 24, that features Rajat Kapoor, Ranvir Shorey, Neha Dhupia and Manjari Phadnis, tells what happens when the lady decides to meet the balding writer and finds him nothing like what she had imagined.
But baldness is not a matter of major concern, observes Shukla. "We all have different kinds of inferiority complexes - some economic and some physical. Most of the time, we end up lying because of it. We start hiding them and that is what sets out a chain of events."
Rajat Kapoor plays the bald man.
