Mishra is known for his power-packed performances in films like ‘Aankhon Dekhi’, ‘Masaan’, ‘Kadvi Hawa’ was thrilled to have his next ‘Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain’ have its International Premiere at South Asian International Film Festival NYC. The screening at the Sunshine theater was followed by a Q&A with the team.
Actor Anushuman Jha who is widely known for his roles in ‘Chauranga’, ‘Mona Darling’ etc was present along with Director Harish Vyas and Producers Manav Malhotra.
Directed by Harish Vyas says ‘Angrezi Main Kehta Hain’ comes with a slice of life, family drama set in the temple town of #Varanasi, where Yashwant (played by talent powerhouse, Sanjay Mishra) realises that one needs to put old wine in a new bottle and brings romance back into his rusty #married life.”
Speaking at the Q&A, Producer Manav Malhotra said, “In ‘Angrezi Main Kehta Hain’ we have tried to explore this grossly sidelined aspect of middle age love. It addresses a certain neglected romance of married life amidst growing up children and the routine mundane humdrum where love gets buried underneath layers of duties and commitments of life. Our film also tends to throw light on the social message, how kids react to parents romance and how parents lead their lives in middle-class India. Sanjay comes across as a Middle class honest and very relatable character. He is someone who has got critical acclaim, has done a variety of cinema. We needed our protagonist for his realistic approach as our character becomes a hero in the process.”
Speaking on the film, Director Harish Vyas said, “It’s a romantic film. It is a middle-aged love story. I wanted to address this side of romance which is subdued and wrapped in the fine nuances of the daily grind. Romance in India belongs to the younger youthful generation. Sanjay Ji was the only person I had in mind to play this character.”
Other artists in the Film include the most promising Anshuman Jha, the most versatile Pankaj Tripathi and the new talent Ekavali Khanna, Brijendra Kala, Shivani Raghuvanshi, Teji Sandhi, Imran Zahid & Shukla.
