A film is not run by names, it is run by content: Rajeev Khandelwal

When Paresh RawalRajeev Khandelwal and Tena Desaewalked in to the DNA office, there was a wave of humility, confidence and grace. Amidst conversations and cheer, the actors got candid and witty. Excerpts from the conversation:

Tell us about your new film ?
Rajeev: While you must be watching thrillers everyday, Table No. 21 is nota routine one. It is the kind of filmwhich will keep you at the edge of your seat, but at the same time compel you to think about it. Mostly what happens is, you watch the film, you enjoy it and say it was a great cinematic experience. But there are very few films that you carry back home...

How is it working with newcomers as compared to seasoned actors?
Paresh: 
Newcomers these days are very clear, in fact they are more prepared than before. Earlier in the80s or 90s, the actors would come to the set, then the script would be written and slowly things would roll into place. The atmosphere is healthier now.

How was the interaction between the three of you during the shooting?
Rajeev:
 It was complete fun. The unit was very young and Pareshji can fit into any age group. We spent a lot of time together. We had a blast and didn't even realise we were doing an intense film. Anyway, it cannot get intense when you're working with Pareshji. He kept us going with his one-liners. I cannot remember a single day, when we were tense.

Was it easy for you to disconnect and keep aside the darkness and intensity of the character that the film demanded?
Paresh:
 Certain roles affect me, but my training as an actor and the control over the craft, allows me to disconnect

How has this new project been for you after your Hollywood sojourn?
Tena:
 This film has been difficult compared to the previous one. This is a thriller and it gets progressively really dark and intense and I am pitted against these two (Paresh Rawal and Rajeev Khandelwal). They are both at ease with high intensity scenes.

Did you find working with senior artistes, like Paresh Rawal and Anupam Kher intimidating?
Tena: 
It is stroke of luck that I have been able to work and learn from such brilliant actors. That is the most important thing for me right now.

There are lot more barriers a televiison star has to break in the absence of a godfather in the film industry...
Rajeev:
 A film is not run by names, it is run by content. Paresh Rawal is an example of the same. When someone comes along and breaks the myth, everyone starts looking up to that person. It is all about breaking rules. I am not the quintessential Bollywood hero. I don't want to be one. There are already so many of them

Do you think actors and directors are finally getting their due?
Paresh: 
With new ideas surging in, this change has been triggered. The earlier trash still exists. But the new projects are challenging. Good roles are written. The sensibilities have changed.

Comedy comes naturally to you. How does your acting look so effortless on screen?
Paresh: 
The only thing that works for me is belief in my work. The training and the experience that I have got in theatre makes it easier for me. Also a good co-actor adds to the ease of the performance.

Some of your most memorable performances were in films like Hera Pheri and Andaaz Apna Apna. How do you play two comic roles differently?
Paresh:
 The script does it for me. Sometimes you have to segregate the two with a hammer, but with a good script it can be worked out.

When would you say the change started happening in the industry?
Paresh:
 I think the change started taking place in 1998-99 with movies like Dil Chahta Hai and Lagaan. There is a new kind of writing in today's cinema. When Dibakar Banerjee narrates a script to me, it seems as if he is having a conversation about life and not just repeating filmy dialogues. 

The kind of films you have done have been very different. Do you select these films on any criteria?
Tena:
 I haven't completely figured that out. I am the kind of person who likes to watch sensible movies, and that is the kind of films I would like to do. But I also think its important to do other genre that are entertaining and not always intelligent. So far I have gone with films that are sensible but that doesn't mean I have made a pattern of it.

"The journey have been very smooth": Rajeev Khandelwal
Published by: Faisal Saif
Published on: Tue, 01 Jan 2013 at 06:44 IST

Mumbai: Rajeev Khandelwal who was once considered as Shah Rukh Khan of small screen and made his film debut with the 2008 flick Aamir, Wants to explore new and challenging roles. With his latest edgy thriller 'Table No 21' ready to hit the silver screens on 4th January 2013, Rajeev sounds very confident and excited.

Rajeev says, "It is the first film of the 2013 and it's definitely not going to remind you of anything that you have seen in the past. Every character is multidimensional and the layers keep getting uncovered as the film progresses. As far as the concept of 21 is concerned, it has a deep relation with the Article 21 of our Constitution, you'll see the connection when you watch the film." The actor also seems to shy away from doing Rom-Com's and has a very unusual and different take on it as he adds "I don't want to do romantic comedies and films that are being done in dozens, everyone's doing these film and we have been watching these films for the longest time. I would rather let these films be handled by those who are veterans in this genre and would rather be a part of the movement which is at least attempting to give something new and aims in adding variety to the industry."

The actor is very much satisfied with the way his career has been shaping up so far, He further concludes "The journey has been very smooth and I am very happy with the way it has happened, but at the same time I haven't moved away from TV. Whenever I get a good offer, I'd be happy to take it up.
