Video: Interview of Actress Ishaa Saha
After Projapoti Biskut and Guptodhoner Sondhane, actress Ishaa Saha has secured much popularity both among the masses as well as among the critics. The young, talented actress will be now making her debut in web-series with Japani Toy directed by Sourav Chakraborty. Sholoana Bangaliana caught up with the talented actress in an exclusive chat. Excerpts..
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana- This is your first work in a web series. What role do you play in Japani Toy?
Ishaa Saha- I play Kinkini in Japani Toy. She is just like the typical Bengali girl. She loves Joy and is supportive and caring about him. When she hears that Joy wants to open the first sex toy store in Kolkata, she is anxious just like any other normal person. But later when she understands Joy’s logic behind the decision, she becomes his support system. To know more about Kinkini, do watch Japani Toy.
How was the working experience of acting in a web series?
Ishaa Saha- Well, the team of Trickster is very young. There were some individuals who were even younger than me too. Since this is a web series, time was a constraint and we had to shoot for long hours. That was a hardship. However that was made up by the fact that we were all a young group and we had great fun shooting for Japani Toy.
You have worked with Rajdeep before. How was it working with him again?
Ishaa Saha- (laughs) Yes, it was a good experience working with him yet again. When I initially worked with him in television, I knew nothing about facing the camera or about camera angles. He used to help me a lot. Now I am aware of those things. That has helped a lot. Moreover I know how he will react to certain situations and that understanding helps during shooting. Let’s see how the audience reacts to our chemistry.
How was Sourav as a director?
Ishaa Saha- He was very good actually. The team was young and we understood each other very well. So the working atmosphere was very cordial and I had a great time shooting for this web series.
The name Japani Toy will ignite in the minds of many audiences that this web series is a sex comedy. How do you think the audience will react to this series?
Ishaa Saha- I want to make it very clear that this is not a sex comedy but rather a political satire. One can say it is a dark comedy. The hero and the heroine do not kiss in the series. Hence once can understand that the word sex has been used to serve another purpose. The word Japani always triggers sex in the minds of the people. But that is not the case here. That has been used to throw light on other issues. I was initially sceptical of whether I should do this. But when I heard the script, I liked it and hence I agreed. Here’s hoping that the audience too likes it.
We also hope that Ishaa gets much love for her act as Kinkini and blossoms further as a young and talented actress!!
