A week after news of his association with director Pradeep Sarkar hit headlines, Ali Fazal told the media that ‘Arranged Marriage’ is set to explore the emotion of love in contemporary times.
“The film is a unique modern-day love story which is set in Kolkata. It’s a twisted tale of a relationship that has its own complexities, which will be beautifully explored by Pradeep sir for a large canvas,” Fazal tells Mid Day, adding that filming in Kolkata commenced recently.
Apart from exploring the relationships between lovers and within families, the film, Fazal says, will showcase how dynamics change when a marriage brings two families together. Indecisive about naming his co-actors, he expresses excitement at collaborating with them.
He adds, “It is also a privilege to work with a veteran director and writer like Pradeep dada, who has delivered powerful and meaningful cinema.” While Sarkar — who carefully created Kajol’s character in ‘Helicopter Eela’ (2018) — has etched out incredible stories for women, he is now set to depict this offering from a man’s point of view.
