After Seeking Work On Social Media, Neena Gupta Is In Cannes To Unveil Her Film’s First Look!


National award winning actress Neena Gupta broke the norm when she took to social media last year to ask for work. Yes, instead of knocking doors of filmmakers and producers, she took the social media route to seek ‘good parts to play’. She had posted,

And guess what the tables turned for her and how! The veteran actress is currently in Cannes to unveil the first look of her upcoming movie The Last Colour. Talk about getting a jump!

Based on the widows of Vrindavan, the first look of The Last Colour managed to stun the audiences. Neena revealed that it left the audience ‘quiet’.

The talented actress is satisfied with the response and says that it fetched her many projects. So much so, that she has even made a comeback as a writer with ‘Kehne Ko Humsafar Hai’.

Talking to IANS over the phone from Cannes, she said,

“I have done a small role in ‘Veere Di Wedding’, but I have done very nice roles in ‘Mulk’ which stars Rishi Kapoor, then there’s ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’ and Amit Sharma’s ‘Badhai Ho’. I have shot for these… But now after ‘The Last Colour’, what will I do… What is there after fulfilment” .

Interestingly, The Last Colour also marks the debut of chef Vikas Khanna as a director. For Neena, this movie has been her most fulfilling project till date.

“I have recently done four films with very good directors… But this (‘The Last Colour’) was very fulfilling because I was preparing myself that I will act a certain way, my body language will slow down, my eyes will be like that… But when they gave me the sari (to wear for the character), I just became her. Vikas kept on telling me what to do, and I kept on doing it… While doing some scenes, he never cut it, and the shot went on… Everything flowed, so it was very fulfilling. We would wonder ‘Kaise ho gaya’. We shot for 10 days, it was very hot at the Varanasi ghats… It was tough, but it happened,” she recounted.

The actress who has dabbled with theatre, TV and movies in the past, plays Noor, a widow in Vrindavan who wishes to play Holi but is forbidden by tradition. Noor meets a young tightrope walker, Chhoti, and the film traces their impact on each other’s lives. This movie is based on a novel by the same name and it penned by Khanna.

The actress was excited about her debut at the Cannes Film Festival.

“It was very funny because for many years people I know had been visiting the fest. I was very curious to know what (the) Cannes (film festival) was. But I always used to say I will go with my film… and it has happened,” she mused.

On working with Khanna, she said she liked his honesty and passion.

“I feel that with this film, he has dealt with a major issue in a soft and subtle way, where the story flows so beautifully that you say ‘itni badi baat ho gayi (it has made such a strong statement’,” Neena added.

After such a terrific response at a global platform, we wish Neena all the best for her film and hope she gets to work on her craft so that we can see her on the silver screen more frequently.
