As the technical advances in the cinema have opened more space for the experiments in the narration, the veteran actress Shabana Azmi feels that it offers challenges for the interpreter. “I think it has become a bit difficult for the performer to match and bring the same energy level every time he replays the scene. And as an actor you do not know what angle will be taken in the final edition,” Azmi told IANS .
However, she encouraged so much hard work that it helps to reach the level of perfection. The upcoming film of the actress “Idgah”, directed by Piyush Panjuani, has been selected for the 10th NFDC Film Bazaar. It is based on Munshi Premchand’s short story of the same name. Sharing his shooting experience, he said: “I built a bond with the actor child who plays my grandson in the movie.”
Although most of the times it has been observed that the adaptation of the literature on celluloid is hardly successful, Shabana thinks differently. “Well, it has another dimension.You see when you are reading a book, you keep your own imagination while in the movie, you have a visual reference.But what is interesting in ‘Idgah’ is that it has taken from A story and has been expanded to a long feature film, “he said.
