After impressing viewers with her performances in films like 'Taare Zameen Par' and 'Rahasya', Tisca Chopra is set to turn producer with a 15-minute short film, Chutney. Her look in it is a complete shocker. The debut venture, which also features Adil Hussain and Rasika Duggal, has been made under Tisca's banner The Eastern Way and presented by Royal Stag Barrel Select. It delves into voyeurism, infidelity, marital relationships and insecurity.
Ask Tisca how she came up with the title 'Chutney', and she replies, "Isn't spice a necessary aspect of our lives? However, much like Vanita, 'chutney' often goes unnoticed. Despite all its spiciness, it is never the centre of attention or attraction in the Indian diet; it is never served alone."
The actress reveals that apart from a feature film that will be coming up soon, she is also keen to produce commercials and web series in the near future.
Making a short film was creatively satisfying: Tisca Chopra
Web series and short films have become a rage these days. It not only gives a film-maker the freedom to explore unique content, but also unleashes their creative side. Actor Tisca Chopra has recently turned producer with her short film, titled Chutney.
The theme of the film is about guarding one’s turf. Tisca, who started her acting career in 1993, wanted to share certain stories with the audience. “This story has been on my mind since a while now,” says the Taare Zameen Par actor.
Interestingly, it was director Imtiaz Ali, who suggested that she make a short film. “It was a random remark that stayed with me. He said, ‘Once you do make a short film, you will understand many things’,” she adds. Since then, Tisca has been sure about making a short film, as the “story lends itself better to the format”. “Had it been shot as a long movie, it wouldn’t have worked. The story will teach people how not to take ordinary people for granted. It is also about women taking control,” she says.
Apparently, the actor and her team finished the film in a month and half. Tisca was part of the entire process. “From writing to learning the nuances of editing, I was involved in everything. Making a short film was creatively satisfying. As an actor, one does not get to experience so much. You take everything for granted. A lot of learning was required for this movie,” she says.
