Mumbai, April 11 (IANS) First time director Rajesh Bachchani enjoyed working with TV actor Hussain Kuwajerwala in "Shree" because he feels both of them exude same passion and determination.
Before turning director, Bachchani wrote TV shows like "Ssshhhh... Koi Hai", "Kahani Saat Pheron Ki", and "Comedy Circus". The film also marks Hussain's big screen debut.
The director said it is good "when two passionate people join together" and another "good thing" for him was that "Shree" was both, his and Hussain's, first film.
"Hussain has the same amount of determination that I have, in fact, more than that. Even while preparing for the film, we both used to give 200 to 500 percent," Bachchani said here Wednesday in an interview.
Praising Hussain's dedication and commitment, he said: "While rehearsals,...we used to rehearse day and night as the whole shooting was on the real locations. So, we couldn't afford to take the risk of re-takes. Besides, we had to make the film within limited budget and limited resources."
"Since, it was our first film, so we got a lot of benefit...we both knew that any mistake could...backfire. So we both worked hard, developed a good chemistry and that passion reflects in the film," Bachchani said.
Coming out April 26, "Shree" also features Anjali Patil, who was last seen in Prakash Jha's "Chakravyuh".
