Jackie Shroff , work in the film ‘Brothers ‘is earning him accolades. The suave actor is now looking forward to “Chehere”. A modern day classic “Chehere” stars Manisha Koirala and Jackie Shroff with other leading actors, Gulshan Grover, Hrishitaa Bhatt, Aarya Babbar and Divya Dutta.
Jackie Shroff expressed his excitement for the period film “CHEHERE”, written & directed by Rohit Kaushik.
Jackie who plays the role of a silent era/talkies, film producer, Director and actor in “Chehere” is delighted that film is on release. “The story of “Chehere” captures the time when the Film Industry was going through the dramatic change from silent films to Talkies. A fascinating journey which affected the lives of many cine stars. The past is beautifully captured in black & white and the images bring back memories of our yester-year cinema.” Which is why it became more interesting for me to do this film” said Jackie.
Director Rohit said “Film’s B&W portions are shot in India, and Colored portions are shot in London. The essence of the film A Modern Day Classic – CHEHERE are the people, the masks they wore, the lives they lived and the turmoil they faced, in a society structuring itself. The deception, the deceit, the passion and the will to survive unfolds in the film. Filmed in Colour and Black & White, it captures the period and emotions…. Chehere is cinema within cinema. It is a psychological thriller set in 1952 in England, it is a drama of pure essence captured on celluloid, it plays with the inter-relationships of the main cast in the film. Our Protagonist, Tarana, brought to life by Manisha Koirala is a silent era star who did not find her footings in the Talkies cinema and moves away to the U.K. and lives in a huge Mansion with her sister and a retinue of domestic help……the film unfolds under many dimensions and the characters are human but exist with many façades and faces, that somewhere down the line holds true for all of us. A classically mounted film…the canvas is musical, tense and as the film progresses the mystery deepens and the ending shocks you.”
