‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ turns 5: Directors recall casting Pakistan star Mawra Hocane as Telugu Brahmin


‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ turns 5

Sanam Teri Kasam, that includes Harshvardhan Rane and Mawra Hocane, launched 5 years in the past on today. The author-director duo — Vinay Sapru and Radhika Rao — recalled how the movie had no Bollywood famous person. In addition they shared the fascinating story of casting Pakistani model-actress Mawra Hocane as a Telugu Brahmin within the movie. The 2016 movie is a romantic tragedy, primarily based Erich Segal’s 1970 bestseller novel, Love Story.

“Whereas penning this movie, we drew each second, character and dialogue from our private lives. The woman Saru (performed by Mawra) is a Telugu Brahmin and he or she lives like (co-director) Radhika (Rao)’s household. The boy belongs to one thing like my background. Additionally there was an inspiration from mythology — Shiv Puran. Usually, like Indian folktale, if a daughter’s wedding ceremony will not be blessed by the daddy, it’s not thought-about a profitable wedding ceremony,” mentioned Sapru.

Added Rao: “Whereas casting, we had choices to forged current stars however we thought that the texture of a tragic story of affection can solely come from people who find themselves completely new and recent. It was actually nice seeing a Muslim woman like Mawra Hocane enjoying the character of a Brahmin woman. She had no concept concerning the tradition of the character and but she obtained into the pores and skin of it.”

Taking to the Instagram, Vinay Sapru & Radhika Rao mentioned “From Throughout The Border @mawrellous & @harshvardhanrane regardless of dyslexic perfected each phrase… each tune… each second… that we wrote on this story of Star crossed lovers…. #SanamTeriKasam … and just like the dying dialogue of Saru ‘Love You To The Sq. Of Infinity..”
