2 Get­ting to Know… Karan Gour ce

Cosmopolitan (India) - - LIFESTYLIST -

The first-time di­rec­tor of the indie flick Kshay talks about his award-win­ning project that took four years to com­plete, all done with a two-man crew.

Cosmo: What’s your film about?

Karan Gour: “It’s about a lower mid­dle-class house­wife’s un­flinch­ing ob­ses­sion for an un­fin­ished statue of God­dess Lak­shmi. It re­volves around her in­tan­gi­ble de­sires and grad­ual men­tal de­te­ri­o­ra­tion in the quest for the statue which costs more than she can af­ford.” KG: “It was dif­fi­cult. We did not have any dead­lines, so that eased our sit­u­a­tion. The film took four years to com­plete.”

C: What prob­lems did you face as a film­maker?

KG: “Since I was han­dling a lot of the line pro­duc­tion my­self, there were mo­ments when I had to shift fo­cus from di­rec­tion to pro­duc­tion (food and travel). My ac­tors were re­ally pa­tient.”

KG: “The film has just been re­leased on DVD in July.”
