With its novel theme, Rashmi Rocket is already making noise. Starring Taapsee Pannu, Abhishek Banerjee and Supriya Pathak, the movie takes on the observe of gender testing. The movie comes out on October 15 on Zee5. In an interview with indianexpress.com, Supriya Pathak, who performs the position of Taapsee’s mom within the movie, talks about her robust character, the enjoyment of working with director Akarsh Khurana, and the professionals and cons of launch on OTT platforms.

Supriya says she was overwhelmed to work with Akarsh, as she has seen him develop up. She says, “I actually loved doing this movie, I liked the script and the inspiration. It’s a very fascinating script. I’ve seen Akarsh as small little one, so it was a pleasure and second of pleasure when he provided me this movie. It’s like your ghar ka baccha providing you a movie. In order that was an enormous excessive for me.”

Talking about her position, she says, “My position is essential because it has a presence and provides poignance within the movie. I hope that has come out. It was nice for me to undergo this.” She added that the mom within the movie is a pillar of a help, and it additionally reminded her of her personal mom. “Moms are our help system. She’s at all times behind our minds… I miss my mom. If she was there, I might have gone to her home and put my head on her lap. On this, she’s the proper particular person to fall again on. That’s the type of mom I play on this, somebody who has gone via so much in life. It’s a pleasant relationship.”

Supriya Pathak has essayed quite a lot of roles through the years — if she made individuals giggle together with her antics as Hansa in Khichdi, she additionally gave them chills together with her efficiency as Dhankor within the movie Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela. Pathak has a passion for her character Hansa, maybe greater than different roles. Requested if she misses the position of Hansa, she says, “I miss Hansa, I miss her on a regular basis.

Owing to the pandemic, movies have been slated to launch on OTT platforms, as an alternative of theatres. Up to now two years, the OTT platforms equivalent to Netflix, Amazon Prime and Zee have turn into a type of lifeline for cinema goers. Talking about this, she says, “OTT is a superb platform. Due to this platform, totally different sorts of tales and genres will be explored. We have now an excellent alternative to do one thing fascinating, and to maintain doing it.”

Nevertheless, she reveals her considerations concerning OTT platforms. “When tv got here, it provided the identical alternative. It was a medium to discover and attain out to lots of people and inform extra tales. Someway it turned regressive.”

Is she referring to the saas-bahu soaps that swept tv for nearly a decade? “The saas-bahu format, something. Related work is being carried out on comparable sorts of channels. Within the day by day soaps, high quality turned unimportant as they turned amount oriented. The face of tv modified, and I wasn’t snug with that. Over right here, we now have a follow-the-leader angle, and that scares me. We’re not competing inside our nation, we’re competing with a worldwide viewers on OTT. When you see all around the world, the exhibits are so fascinating and totally different from one another. I hope we handle that right here. The movies which can be popping out on OTT are actually fairly fascinating.”

Nevertheless, she fears that once more a sample is rising. “No matter I’ve been seeing through the years, we’re once more developing with darkish content material. All of the OTT platforms are starting to provide you darkish content material, and we have to break that. We have to inform totally different sorts of tales. After we began doing tv, there was Idhar Udhar, Hum Log, Saans — so many genres and takes. So many issues had been being carried out. After which this entire saas-bahu factor began, everybody began doing the identical factor. This could not occur with OTT, as a result of it’s a good looking starting.”

With regard to theatres opening once more, Pathak says that whereas she is eager to carry out on stage once more, it shouldn’t be on the danger of anybody’s well being. “As performers, I’m dying to return on stage, however I don’t need to ask my viewers to return and watch with full capability.”

Most of Supriya Pathak’s household is within the trade, together with her stepson Shahid Kapoor. On whether or not we’d ever get to see them on display screen collectively, she laughs, “I don’t know, I don’t know. But when ever provided, we’ll work collectively.”
