Why do you term it a dream debut?
Well, I had such a good director like Mysskin to work with for my debut and it was a huge learning curve and he is a very patient director. He would explain each shot in detail and makes it very easy for an actor. He knows his characters so well, what they feel and how they react. He knows exactly what he wants from an actor. Thanks to producers UTV the promos and publicity has been so widespread that everyone knows about this film. And I had a dream team of co actors to work with. What more could I have asked for in a debut!
Tell us about shooting in the Swiss Alps..
It was amazing. We were there for 15 days and shot two songs. `Vaaya Moodi` has romantic mountains in the background while `Mayaavi` was shot inside towns. We shot in Bern`s city hall in the night and also in Fribourg. The team did a great job scouting for the right locations.
We shot inside a 20 storey Dam near Grimseln and it was freezing cold especially more so for me since I had a flimsy gown on. But Jiiva for once was glad that he has a Superhero costume on since the heat it normally generated was keeping him warm in the climate!
Any pre release jitters?
Yes plenty! I feel like I have written an exam and am awaiting the results of it on 31st! I am excited to see the audience reaction to the film and eagerly waiting to see how they accept me!
