Unpaused: Shardul Bharadwaj talks about working with Ratna Pathak Shah. Nitya Mehra gives an update on Made In Heaven 2 – Bollywood

The new offering from Amazon Prime Video Unpaused is a collection of five short films that were shot during the Covid-19 pandemic. With her film Chaand Mubarak, Nitya Mehra wants to convey the message of learning to trust people.

Chaand Mubarak, starring Ratna Pathak Shah and Shardul Bharadwaj, is the story of a wealthy middle-aged single woman who forms an unlikely friendship with a young rickshaw driver whom she must seek help during the lockdown. As they slowly overcome their preconceived notions of each other, they find that they are not that different after all – both lonely in the big city of dreams.

Nitya said she never knows if her content will appeal to audiences. “If so, I hope they get a glimpse of an unlikely friendship. When two unlikely people come together, some level of judgment is required. If you leave a little room for conversation, you will understand a lot more about who the other person is and you will realize that there will always be similarities. “

If the audience were to take something away from Chaand Mubarak, it would be learned to trust again. “I think the world got into a different kind of polarization that I haven’t seen before. There is a huge gap between people who live in ivory towers and those who aren’t. Social structures have created this gap and it has only increased in these times. Covid-19 is also a mind game, so to speak. It has caused such a mess that trusting each other will be a whole new thing. When you look at someone who is wearing a mask and sneezing it’s like, “Oh my god, does this person have Covid-19? Will he give it to me ‘I think I was trying to bring Covid-19 and pre-Covid-19 societies together and say,’ Listen, get out there and get to know the person you are talking to before you decide to them not to trust. ” ” She said.

Shardul said, “It’s about people like you and me, and it’s understandable in terms of the situation they are in and the preconceived feelings they have about each other.”

He also spoke about the “wonderful” experience of shooting with Ratna. “Not only is she experienced, a lot of people are experienced. She only knows in one scene where she has to push me a little and where not. As a young actor, you feel comfortable having someone working with you on the scene who takes care of you, ”he said.

Before unsubscribing, Nitya gave an update on the long-awaited second season of Made In Heaven, which she co-ruled. “We’ll start filming early next year. We’re excited to be back on set because it’s been a while. I have no idea of ​​the release dates, so don’t ask me about them, but I know we’ll start our work early next year, ”she said.
