Mumbai, 08 March 2023 (UTN).
Actor-director Balraj Sya
l recently shot his directorial Apne Ghar Begane in Canada. He says that it has been quite a journey making this film.
“We shot this in minus 30-35
in proper winters when people don’t even prefer going out. We were supposed to shoot in the summer but couldn’t because of Visa issue
s. I thought we would get a different
look which will look very good so decided to shoot in winters. I’ve always wanted to be the make
r of the films. I wrote the film
and my producers
liked a lot so they also asked me to direct the film,” he says.
This film stars Yograj Singh, father of Yuvraj Singh, Kulraj Randhawa, Roshan prince
, Armaan Aujla
and Rana Ranbir. Ask him who is his favourite director, and he says, “One of my favourite directors is Rajkumar Hirani sir, because all his films have so many emotions which excite the audiences. Anurag Kashyap’ sway of storytelling is commendable. These are my favourite two directors.
”Talking about how it is to be behind the camera as well, he says, “It was really tough being behind the camera because it was very cold and our whole crew’s visa wasn’t on time and we were short of manpower. The Canadian
crew and my actors were very supportive.
Being an actor is not easy but being a director, you have to look after various situations. The work never ends. It was very tough and I also lost almost 10 kgs weight
during that time but it’s said that ‘all that goes well ends well
’. The film is very nicely made and I can’t wait for all of you to see the magic. The best part was my wife was also there in canada during th shoot which helped me a lot. He adds, “I didn’t give much attention to writing while I was busy with my acting work but during covid time I started writing again. Now I am working on other films and hopefully we will start shooting for another film soon. ”The film Apne Ghar Begane
is produced by gang of filmmaker and Ravishing
