Video: Exclusive Interview of Rittika-Soham
Ravi Kinagi’s Diwali release, Jio Pagla has Rittika and Soham paired up for the first time. Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent caught up with the pair in an exclusive chat about shooting Jio Pagla. Excerpts..
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana- Tell us about the characters that your play in the film.
Rittika- I play Sashikala and Soham da plays the character of Dhol. You can see from the names that they are comical. Whenever I say Jio Pagla now memories of the fun that we had during the shooting comes back to my mind. We were shooting for a song and even after the shoot in the water was over, we all stayed in the water for the next one hour and had fun. This is the kind of fun we had during the shoot of the film. We had a great time and yet we did the work in a disciplined manner. I learnt a lot from everyone and we all used to help each other. I worked with Soham da for the first time and I had a great time.
How was your experience of working with Rittika for the first time?
Soham- It was a good experience working with her because she had the urge to learn. That is what I found during the shoot of the film. Ours is a fresh pair and the audiences will hopefully love the chemistry which according to us is good. My character has different shades and I had to get in the skin of the character to bring out the comedy. When I used to act, people used to laugh beside me. I understood then that I was doing the job well.
Can you share some Jio Pagla moments from the shooting of the film?
Rittika- The whole shooting was full of such moments. During the shoot also, we used to burst out laughing. Those scenes had to be cut though. Even after the shot, we found the technicians laughing. So we understood that if they liked the film so much, then the audiences will also love the film.
What is your expectation from the film?
Soham- Like with every other film that I have acted in, I have a lot of expectations from the film. The songs by Jeet Gannguli are already getting positive feedbacks from the people. We all have worked hard in the tight schedule of the film.
Rittika- I remember when we used to return from the shooting, first everyone used to be very excited. But after some time, all one could hear were people snoring. We used to get very tired due to the tight schedule in which the film was shot. The film is releasing in Diwali and people should go to the halls and enjoy themselves by laughing their hearts out.
Wishing the new pair all the best for Jio Pagla!!
