The chemistry of Shefali Shah and Neeraj Kabi sizzles in ONCE AGAIN

The chemistry of Shefali Shah and Neeraj Kabi sizzles in the upcoming Indo-German feature love story, Once Again which is slated to release soon.

Check out the first look and trailer!

Witten and Directed by Kanwal Sethi, Once Again is an unusual and mature love story of Tara, a widowed mother who runs a small restaurant and one of her customers, a popular film actor Amar, who she delivers his daily meals. Tara has never seen him – except on the big screen.

Apart from the lead stars, Shefali Shah and Neeraj Kabi, the film features a stellar cast including Rasika Dugal, Bhagwan Tiwari, Bidita Bag and Priyanshu Painyuli.

The music composer, Talvin Singh, who has been at the helm of fusion music, and has played with the likes of Madonna creates an enchanting and melodious soundtrack.

Actor Neeraj Kabi, who was last seen in Netflix show Sacred Games as DCP Parulkar has done diverse roles in films such as Talvar, Byomkesh Bakshi, Ship Of Theseus, Hichki. Excited about playing a romantic hero on celluloid for the first time, Neeraj says, “I have always wanted to perform a love story on celluloid. I am so happy I finally did.”

Talking about his co-star Shefali, he adds, “Shooting this film has been such an incredible journey with my co-actor Shefali Shah. We were both deeply engaged into the characters we were playing and kept exploring various ways of soaking ourselves into more complex sensations of love and romance. I was fortunate to have Shefali performing because she had this quality of just throwing herself into the scenes and consume everything around her.” “Kanwal, the director, eventually became a friend on set and was always supporting towards our process of work. His sensitivity can be felt in the way he has put the film together. The film has been sensitively shot, thoughtfully edited and the music has a soul of itself.” He adds about the director.

Dil Dhadakne Do, Monsoon Wedding, Satya actress who was recently seen in a acclaimed short film Juice, Shefali Shah describes her character and the unusual love story as, “Strangers from different worlds and from different lives, He from a world of cameras and light. She from a world of smoke and spice. It’s an old-world romance not much said, not in words not in gestures and yet volumes of passion, craving respect and companionship passes between their silent looks. The fact that it doesn’t cross a line of expression and it leaves one hankering for more. That’s the chemistry Tara and Amar share. It’s subtle and yet volatile. Juxtapose of implosion and explosion.”

Writer-director of Once Again Kanwal Sethi, says, “Once Again is an attempt to capture this feeling of loneliness and its different facets in modern urban India. It’s a story of an independent middle-class woman, who after the death of her husband tries to be the pillar of strength and love for herself and her kids, all alone. It’s about a man who has fulfilled all his material desires and achieved novel heights in his career and yet feels incapable of being able to receive love or happiness in his life. My very first thoughts regarding the film were of the atmosphere.”

Sanjay Gulati, the producer and presenter of the film adds “There was a time when stalwarts like Gulzar Saab created sensitive meaningful and mature love stories, it has been a long time since then and for all who long for that era, here is your chance to relive the magic.”

The Indo-German film is produced by Crawling Angel Films, Jar Pictures, Neufilm in collaboration with ZDF/ARTE and is presented by Sanjay Gulati and Neeraj Pandey. ZDF/ARTE are the powerful channels behind films like Lunchbox, Masaan and Qissa.

The film won Facebook Award for the best Work-in-Progress Lab project at the Film Bazaar in Goa.

Tailoring coach inspires Varun’s look in Sui Dhaaga!

Varun Dhawan plays the role of an innocent local tailor from heartland India, Mauji, in YRF’s upcoming entertainer Sui Dhaaga – Made in India. From the time the first look of Varun was released, it was hugely lauded. Audiences praised the simplicity and authenticity and the look became a huge talking point. The costume designer, Darshan Jalan, revealed the big secret behind his inspiration and it’s a really heart-warming one. No one knows that the tailor overseeing Varun’s prep and training for the film, Noor, is the real inspiration behind Mauji’s look!

Darshan says, “Mauji is from the lower middle class income strata. He is simple person who works in the city as a help/peon in a sewing machine store. Regular people on the streets became an inspiration for us, like the ittar perfume guy from the streets of Haridwar and particularly Noor, our in-house tailor who was also training Varun to perfect his art of stitching and tailoring! From a styling point of view, we ensured that Varun’s look had things that a tailor who could think left of centre would come up with. Such as, zipper on the side of the pants so that he could reduce the size of the flare to keep it from getting caught while cycling. Zipper on the trouser hem so that the ends don’t tear. These intricate details I believe makes audience see something new and adds to the authenticity of the character from a small town in India.”

Varun says, “Noor has been integral to Sui Dhaaga. He was my trainer for 3 months. He laid the foundation stone to me becoming Mauji. I’m indebted to him for teaching me the art of sui dhaaga and making me a believable tailor on screen. And I heard that his sense of dressing inspired my look in the film also! Everything in Sui Dhaaga is about authenticity, about being real and that’s what is making audiences love our trailer. I’m happy that my look has been well received and the credit goes to Darshan and obviously my teacher Noor, who has again left his mark over my character.”

A film about finding love and respect through self-reliance, Varun is paired opposite Anushka Sharma who plays an embroiderer in the film. Both champion actors, Varun and Anushka have been paired for the first time and are definitely the most-awaited on-screen jodis of 2018. Yash Raj Films’ entertainer Sui Dhaaga – Made in India is set to release on September 28 this year, just before Gandhi Jayanti.

Sui Dhaaga brings together National Award winning producer-director combo of Maneesh Sharma and Sharat Katariya after their blockbuster Dum Laga Ke Haisha. The film is a special salute to the inherent entrepreneurial spirit that the youth of India and our local artisans have.

Baaghi was only my second film and now wherever I go, I am asked about the developments on Baaghi 3. The expectations are too high and we will work twice as hard to try and achieve them.”
