‘Baarish Aur Chowmein’ starring Taapsee Pannu and Amit Sadh lands on Indian television.
Directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, the film is slated to premiere on DTH Zindagi platforms on November 27.
‘Baarish Aur Chowmein’ revolves around the story of a Muslim man Siraj, written by talented actor Amit Sadh, who is looking for a house on rent in Mumbai. They face various challenges as few landlords are willing to accommodate a Muslim tenant. Desperate for a roof over his head, Siraj hides his true identity and eventually finds a home. Life takes a different turn when Siraj falls in love with his housekeeper’s daughter, Neela (Taapsee Pannu). A young, bubbly Maharashtrian Neelu works as a dancer in Hindi films. With their strikingly contrasting personalities and ideologies, Siraj is completely smitten with Neelu and asks her to love him in exchange for a month’s salary. This unusual arrangement leads to many revelations between the two.
Actor Taapsee Pannu said about the film, “Baarish Aur Chowmein is a beautiful and touching film. It speaks volumes and showcases the subtle realities of life to the audience. Just like the title of the film, the two characters of Siraj and Neelu are poles apart and yet they complement each other completely. Essaying the character of Neel was indeed a creatively satisfying experience. She has many complex layers to her personality and delving into her mind was challenging and fulfilling for me as an actor. Moreover, working with an ace director like Tigmanshu Dhulia and a passionate actor like Amit Sadh was a great experience. I am looking forward to the Indian television premiere of the film and hope that the audience will be able to resonate with the story.”
Elaborating on his character, actor Amit Sadh said, “Baarish Aur Chowmein gave me an opportunity to essay a very interesting character, Siraj. Torn between his identity and his needs, the character of Siraj experiences inner turmoil on different levels, which made the character challenging and also helped me explore different aspects of myself as an actor. It was an incredible experience to work with a dedicated director like Tigmanshu Dhulia and an extremely talented and dedicated actor like Taapsee Pannu.
