National Award Winning Actress Geetanjali Thapa will be seen in an upcoming Bollywood film Bioscopewala. The cast includes Adil Hussain, Danny Denzongpa and Tisca Chopra. Bioscopewala will be released on May 25.
In an EXCLUSIVE Interview with Cinespeaks, Geetanjali speaks to us.
Speaking on her film Bioscopewala, Geetanjali said, “Bioscopewala is based on Rabindranath Tagore’s short story Kabuliwala. It is a great role and a great script. I auditioned for the role and then read the script. The script excited me immensely because it has the essence of Tagore’s work. I am extremely grateful to my director (Deb Medhekar) as I got to learn a lot from him while working on this film. I play a character called Minnie Basu in the film who is a grown-up filmmaker. She comes to India because of her father’s demise while he was travelling to Afghanistan and meets his old friend. She doesn’t know who is Bioscopewala and why was her travelling to Afghanistan. So, she tries to find out answers to various questions.”
In the film Geetanjali will be sharing screen space with popular actor Danny Denzongpa. When we asked about her working experience with Danny, Geetanjali said. “Danny is an amazing actor and I was a bit nervous and anxious before working with him. He really made me feel comfortable and normal on the set. He is very polite, humble and an awesome person. As an actor too, he is very much giving and is very down to earth and cordial with everyone. I was amazed by his quality of being so humble and polite while working with him.”
On famous poet Rabindranath Tagore, Geetanjali said, “I have read Tagore when I was in school. I have read Neelkanth and Kabuliwala. I love his poetry, prose and various books. In fact, my name ‘Geetanjali’ is the title of one of Tagore’s famous book.”
Post Bioscopewala, Geetanjali will be next seen in famous filmmaker Dr. Bijukumar Damodaran’s upcoming film Painting Life.
