‘Baar Baar Dekho’: Nitya Mehra says she had the best team
Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ has hit the screens. The film is receiving mixed response from the critics and has taken a slow start at the box office. The director of movie, Nitya Mehra, recently stated that she had the best team that any first time director could get.
Nitya said, “I find myself in a privilege position that the kind of producers and actors I had for my first film. I had Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani, Karan Johar, Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif. I had the best team that any first time director or any director could ask for.”
“They believed in the script so much that they came and collaborated with me so I couldn’t have asked for anything better,” she added.
The director revealed that the post-production activities were difficult for her. She said, “The hard part for me is promotion and talking about the film. Sometimes it makes me feel like I don’t want to talk about the film. I want people to come and watch it. It has been the toughest part. In terms of creating the film, I was very excited because I have always wanted to be a director so it was just like living my dream.”
Talking about the star cast of the film, Nitya said, “Sidharth is fresh and very new. He is very experimental with the kind of films he takes on and I find that very endearing about him. While Katrina is someone, who has been working in the industry for so long, and I don’t think anyone has tapped the side of her that we tried to show in ‘Baar Baar Dekho’. She is playing a very real character. We tried to infuse Diya with real Katrina.”
