Team Pink consisting of director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, Andrea Tariang, Ritesh Shah was engaged in a conversation with author Kunal Basu at Tata Steel Kolkata Literary Meet 2017. The session was titled Pink and the power of No.
While speaking about the film, Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury said “When I decided to make the film in Bengali, Shoojit asked me to make it in Hindi so that it could reach out to a wider audience. Many people ask me why I made this film. The main aim of making this film was to showcase the societal ideas about women. I saw this everyday and being a film maker, I thought this will be the best way to vent out my frustrations”.
Andrea Tariang who had initially thought that she will not do the film, later changed her mind. “I auditioned for the film nevertheless. The fact that the director allowed me to be my own self on the sets was a great help. Added to that is the fact that the character’s name was Andrea helped me to enact this role easily” said the actress.
Ritesh Shah explained that it was the story that the director told him which actually made him to say yes to this film. “This is a different story and where the others felt that this is not a big deal, I felt that this will be challenging and hence I said yes to the film” said Ritesh Shah.
The session brought to light important aspects of today’s society and how women are judged by the society.
