DAVID releases tomorrow and one can see that the men out there, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Vikram and Vinay Virmani, are all over. Though there is some fair deal of focus on Isha Sharvani and Monica Dogra as well, the ones who are conspicuous by their absence are Tabu and Lara Dutta.
However, filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar has hinted in not so uncertain terms that his film is mainly about his three Davids and everyone else has a small part to play in their respective stories.
“Well, there were no false claims being made since at the story level itself we all knew what we were getting into. It was always known to Lara that she would have a cameo appearance and she agreed to do the film. Same for Tabu who knew that it wasn’t like a lead part that she was playing but then whatever she was doing on screen, it was very important. This is the reason why she had immediately latched to it,” reasons Bejoy.
One wonders though whether he wasn’t greedy to utilise these elusive actresses for much larger parts.
“Today no one has any regrets whatsoever about the relevance or the length of the part. Everyone is fitting in perfectly well,” smiles Bejoy while also bringing an end to the topic.
Well Bejoy, we hope so as well!
