With only a few days left for Uda Aida to hit the theatres, we had a frank conversation with the writer and the co-producer of the film, Naresh Kathooria. Not just the audience but even the filmmakers are also looking forward to the release of the film.
Naresh Kathooria, who is the writer of the film, said that it is the everyday incidents and events that inspire him to write down the concept of any film. And it generally takes three to four months for a concept to be finalized.
He also frankly continues that the filmmakers try and make clean comedy films which the people can watch with their families and are easily able to connect with the film. He further adds that Uda Aida is a film which will have a message in it. Showing something serious, the movie will still have moments which will give the audience a laughter riot. The children who don’t want to learn Uda Aida, this is a must watch for them because the film will touch the soul and heart of those people.
Explaining how he designs his characters, he says
“the character is designed first and the actor is finalized later. And if later any modifications are to be done, then the characters and the actors equally are changed a little to seem convincing enough to the audience.”
Naresh is an actor also, but he had different aspirations when he decided to enter the field of entertainment. He said
“Chakk De Phatte was my first film as a writer and before that, I was a struggling actor in the university and even in Bombay. I have also done MA Theatre. But professionally I always wanted to be a director. I had gone to Bombay to become a director only, but ever since I started writing, I haven’t even once felt like directing because I’m enjoying the process of writing to the fullest.”
Towards the end of the interview, writer and the co-producer of the film said the one message he really wants the audience to get after watching the film is that they should not be ashamed of their mother tongue. According to him, learning various languages only makes a man intelligent and smart to sustain in this world, but not at the cost of his mother tongue.
