Forever Young

vyg_8379Anuradha Mukharjee (AM): I play a character who will remind you of many of your friends. She is Esha, who constantly cribs and is such a nag!

How close is each of you to your reel character?

NM: I feel I am very different from my on-screen character as I am not a sweet-and-simple kind of girl. My character and I are poles apart. Since I was a tomboy as a child, playing this character was like living a totally different life. But I believe that is the best thing about acting. I had to look for Pooja in myself and do something that was so different from the way I am.

SG: I believe my role is somewhat similar to my real self.  I was a very naughty guy from my childhood to college days. In fact, while shooting for the film, I felt as if I was reliving my college life. It was very nostalgic.

SB:  There are a few attributes that match and some that don’t. Just like my character, I am a foodie but my character loses his cool easily whereas I am a quiet guy who doesn’t get into fights.

vyg_8414MC: Mamta (real) and Vandana (reel) are poles apart. My character Vandana is like an old tape recorder that is stuck. She keeps repeating the same stuff whereas I am a chilled-out person in real life. But, yes, portraying this character and especially working in this film felt like being back in college. All the characters are either relatable or remind you of someone you might have known.

AB: I kind of relate to my character because I used to me very mastikhor. I have always loved spending time with friends. In fact, I also relate to the character Yash is playing as each of us has that personality trait inside us where we go all out for the friends we like.

KR:  I believe I am quite the opposite of my character in the film. I have never got along with boys since I was in school and am a very cool and calm person. But I could relate to my character as I have seen many girls like her. In fact, Krishnadev sir had given us the freedom to improvise. So if we came up with lines he could use in the film, he included them in the script because when you are in college, you speak a certain kind of lingo which we all developed.

vyg_8523YS: It was a wonderful experience to play the character because I didn’t attend college after Class XII. So while shooting for Chhelo Divas, and now for Days Of Tafree, I was able to relive those college days. I didn’t get to do certain things in life which I got to do in this film. We became such good friends that it felt like we were college buddies.
