Ac­tor Tisca Cho­pra (right) — who is rid­ing high on the suc­cess of her maiden pro­duc­tion, on In­dian mid­dle class and its as­pi­ra­tions — says, she felt an adren­a­line rush while mak­ing the short film. “Now I un­der­stand what peo­ple used to say in the old days that so and so pro­ducer spent all his money on mak­ing a film. I’d won­der why would any­one risk his or her house for a film. I re­alise mak­ing a film is one of the big­gest drugs pos­si­ble. It gives such a high,” says Tisca.

The film, mostly shot in old Delhi and Gu­ru­gram, re­leased on­line ear­lier this week, and was viewed five mil­lion times in less than 48 hours.

“I was try­ing to do ev­ery­thing at the same time. It’s a great place to keep per­fect­ing one’s skill. I’d like to do it again. It’s lib­er­at­ing to do some­thing in 15 min­utes. Tell your tale and get out of there... when you push your­self in a new area. It’s quite ex­treme in that sense. It’s like an ad­ven­ture. It’s like I bungee jumped,” adds Tisca, who even acted in the pro­ject along­side Adil Hus­sain.

So, what’s the orig­i­nal source? “It’s a play. I checked with the mak­ers say­ing I’d love to give credit to the writer, but they didn’t want it as changes had been made... I used to per­form this par­tic­u­lar piece on the stage as an ac­tor. It’s been there in my head for about 15-16 years,” she con­cludes.
