Actor Sanjai Mishra, who has acted in movies like Ankhon Dekhi and Golmaal Again, says all the films that are made are commercial as money goes into making them.
“Every film is commercial. Filmmaking is not about writing a love letter. Some money goes into it. In some, it’s a lot and others, it’s less. But movies are not made only with money,” he says.
“Movies are made from the heart. Big films also meet with failure. If there’s no heart in the film, then it won’t work,” added the actor, who will be next seen in Kadvi Hawa.
Talking about the film, he said, “I feel fortunate to be associated with this kind of cinema. This is India’s first film on climate change. It is ‘Make in India’ that we have made. That’s why it is an important film. In our education system or politics, the least importance is given to climate.”
“I have coined a term ‘former farmer’. Every farmer is becoming former because his entire business is dependent on nature and nature is dependent on us. Be it Ghaziabad, Patna or Hyderabad, all the cities look the same – cemented.”
He does his bit to save the planet by planting saplings and taking care of them. As far as the film goes, it has already received a Special Mention at the National Film Awards.
While actor Ranvir Shorey said, “It’s not an art film or a documentary on climate change. It is an entertaining film and is engaging. It is not a masala film or comedy, but that does not mean there are no comic moments. It is a wholesome entertainer.” He is positive about its success despite the box office clash with Kapil Sharma’s Firangi.
Asked about being worried about the clash, Ranvir said in one line, “Not worried at all.” To which, Sanjay added, “It’s like vegetarian and non-vegetarian. People will go according to their preference.”
The film’s director Nila Madhab Panda also believes Kadvi Hawa will do well. The Drishyam Films’ project stars Sanjay Mishra, Ranvir and Tillotama Shome.
The film will release on November 24.
