IN AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH THE WRITER OF 'ATTE DI CHRI', MEET RAJU VERMA

Raju Verma has been working in the industry for past 15 years and at last, all of his hard work has paid him all the debts. He started with writing for stage shows of prominent Punjabi artists like ace comedian-actor Karamjit Anmol and many others. And now after a long struggle in the industry Raju is to bounce back like no one has ever, he is ready with a set of near about 9 to 10 films in a row. Making his writing debut with none other than Neeru Bajwa and Amrit Maan starrer 'Aate Di Chiri', we tried talking about his struggles and strengths in the industry to which he answered as beautifully as he writes. The first project is always difficult, what difficulties did you have to go through while making this writing debut? The first and foremost is to win producers trust through your communication skills and them comes in winning the trust of the actors, after all, they had invested enormous energy and time to make their name. Everyone wants to work with a writer who is best at it. The best part for me was I had the support of film's producer Charanjit Singh Walia, it was him and actors as well, who supported me a lot. After the first project, everything seems to fall in its place, whats your take on it? Well, yes it is true to some extent, for me, it started in May this year and will go on up to the same month until next year and if everything falls in its place as you say, I have near about 10 to 11 projects that will see a finish. In addition to it my second project after 'Aate Di Chiri' will be a White Hill presentation, Ammy Virk and Sonam Bajwa starrer 'Muklawa'.

Amrit Maan was and is like a brother to me not only he delivered everything like I wanted. I also had all the support I wanted from film's director Harry Bhatti. Neeru ma'am taught me a lot, everyone thaught me something or other. BN Sharma, Sardar Sohi would make me sit next to them, respectively, and explain to me about concepts. All in all, it is a never forgettable experience.

How is it different from regular movies? Well, I will frame it like this, even today if you somehow manage to fulfill all of your materialistic desire but the peace you had holding that flour made bird by your mum, you'll get in nowhere. Today kids have exceptionally expensive toys but this flour made bird it is the best toy that above the poverty line or below everyone can easily afford it. There is one more specialty in it, every scene you watch in this film, every scene has its own unique concept on which one would love to make another film. Every artist working in this film you've seen will appear in a never seen avatar before and you'd be forced to say that this is a complete satirical-comedy film. We have tried to engulf our Punjabi culture as much as we can in this film. 'Aate Di Chiri' will be distributed worldwide by Munish Sahni’s Omjee Group. The film will hit the theatres on 19th October 2018.
