Take 2

vyg_6786BOI: While Vidya was in search of her husband, Durga is in search of her daughter.

SG: In the next film, she will be searching for her mom or mother-in-law. (Laughs)

VB: Then you will get to know that it was she who has kidnapped her mother-in-law. (Laughs)

SG: Durga is much more complicated, unlike Vidya Bagchi, who was very cushioned. Everybody was very protective about her. Here, Durga is quite alone in the world and she has to look after herself. That is the basic difference between the two. Durga has to fight it out.

BOI: While watching the trailer, one is unable to figure out whether Durga’s character is positive or negative.

VB: Yes, even I haven’t been able to figure that out as I was in a coma in the film. (Laughs)

SG: Yes, good question. We would like to figure that one out.

VB: You have all the answers. Stop acting!

BOI: Kahaani stood out also because of how you explored Kolkata. Is there anything similar in this film too?

SG: Hopefully, yes, because we have shot not only in the suburbs of Kolkata but in other parts of West Bengal. We shot in a place called Kalimpong.

VB: Which is beautiful. I want to promote the film there but they have only one theatre, which is why they are not taking me there. People shoot in Darjeeling but this place is divine. It’s like heaven on earth. This film has explored West Bengal, not just Kolkata. Also, the Kolkata you see this time is very different from earlier.

SG: Yes, hopefully you haven’t seen this kind of Kolkata before.

BOI: Was this shoot more comfortable than the first one?

VB: No, it was far tougher. Kalimpong was easy because the weather was lovely. Then we shot in Chandannagar, where it was 50 degrees. I cannot even begin to tell you what that was like, it was so hot and humid. It was energy-sapping, and the moment you reached the sets, you were already drained. So the weather made it very difficult, this time. We had shot Kahaani in November-December in Kolkata, that was wonderful. I have never experienced 50 degrees before. I think main kisi baat ka prashchit kar rahi thi.

vyg_6739SG: What is more surprising is that she is saying all this now. She never once mentioned any of this on the sets. Then, it was always, like, ‘Let’s work.’ Besides, the challenges the weather posed, we also shot in real locations, which comes with its own set of challenges. So, for instance,
we couldn’t use air-conditioning or even fans.

VB: Even our vanities would have to be parked far away, which means you couldn’t really access your vanity.

SG: It was quite a tough shoot but there were good sweets in Chandannagar, good momos in Kalimpong and chilly chicken in Kolkata.

VB: Main prashchit issiliye kehe rahi thi because after that I went to Jharkhand to shoot for Begum Jaan. While everyone there found the weather really hot, I thought, ye toh main already bhugat chuki hu. (Laughs)

SG: Tough but good.

VB: That’s the only thing that made it tough, really.

vyg_6886BOI: So, expectations from December 2?

VB: That everyone is going to love Kahaani 2 and Durga Rani Singh.

SG: Yes, same, same.

BOI: And where do you see Kahaani 3?

SG: Inse dates poochhona!

VB: Aap likho pehele.
