By the promos of Neeru Bajwa’s directorial debut film Sargi, there is a vibe of something new to the storyline, which we haven’t seen for a while.
But first things first, what is making the headlines is Bajwa’s younger sister, Rubina Bajwa who is making her debut on the silver screen with the two dashing young icons of Punjabi music, Jassie Gill and Babbal Rai. The whole cast was in Chandigarh on Wednesday to talk about their film.
Babbal starts off by explaining the storyline of the film. “This is not a love triangle that we have seen many times in the past. Sargi goes beyond that.” In between Jassie interrupts, “Yes! Not a triangle, but a rectangle,” and introduces Karamjeet Anmol as the fourth angle in the film.
Jassie and Babbal further reveal their experience of working with Rubina, as they predicted that it would not be easy for them to romanticise in-front of Neeru Bajwa. “The first thought came to my mind was that since Rubina is Neeru’s sister, she might have an attitude problem, but as we connected on the shoot, Rubina become my dearest friend,” shares Babbal. On that note Rubina adds, “I couldn’t have asked for a better cast to work with. I have been a huge admirer of their music. And more than that, they are so humble in real life. We all share a great chemistry together, which will be easily visible on the screen.”
Actors Jassie Gill, Babbal Rai, Rubina Bajwa and Karamjeet Anmol were in Chandigarh on Wedneday to talk about their film Sargi, which is hitting theatres this Friday
Neeru as a director
Further the cast talked about working under Neeru Bajwa’s direction. For Jassie, who has worked with Neeru before in Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar, shares that she’s not a director who will dictate her actors on the shoot.
“Whenever I made mistakes, she used to come and talk to me one-to-one.”
Here, Rubina says, “I was very nervous to work with her. Being my elder sister, she knows me and out. But on the sets, I saw her as my director only. Though, it was difficult as we are so close in real life, I got my taste of professionalism while shooting for the film”.
Love and Laugh
The film is a rom-com, and who could have fit in better than Karamjeet Anmol, who is renowned for his comic characters in the industry. In his witty way, he mentions the importance of bringing fresh dose of humour in the story.
“In our Punjabi film industry, you can give the audience same songs with the different tunes, but things don’t work out the same way when it comes to comedy. No one will enjoy a repeated joke,” says Karamjeet, who will share the screen among the main leads.
He adds, ‘Sargi is about love. For me, love is comedy,” On that note, the whole cast shares a friendly laugh, and Babbal compliments Karamjeet, saying, “Paaji dil chu ta tussi tan…” Sargi is set to release on February 24.
