Anshuman’s ‘rare experiment’ in his next
In his five-year long career, Love Sex aur Dhoka (2010) fame actor Anshuman Jha (right) has never been part of a co-directed project. But he calls his next film, helmed by eleven directors, a rare experiment.
“It was exciting to be a part of something that has never happened before. Working with different filmmakers for the same film... it’s a rare experiment,” Anshuman says.
The list of directors includes Rajshree Ojha of Aisha fame, London Paris New York director Anu Menon, Bengali director Qaushiq Mukherjee (popularly known as Q), Aatma director Suparn Verma, Abhinav Shiv Tiwari, Nalan Kumarasamy, Hemant Gaba, Pratim D Gupta, Raja Sen, Sandeep Mohan and Sudhish Kamath.
The actor plays a character called ‘K’. “It is quite crazy as all of them are different thinkers, diverse filmmakers. Each segment will be unique. I even had to modulate my voice as my character was ageing to sound mature,” he added.
Anshuman, who has worked with actors Huma Qureshi and Swara Bhaskar in the film, says: “I had a fantastic time working with them. Huma is clinical, Swara is instinctive. They both have different approaches but create magic in their own way.”
