Since the trailer of it has made some noise around the trade and audience, the Duo Raj & DK had a great time chatting with Media. Check out thier quirky answers below…
Q. You are coming with a show like “The Family Man” on the Digital Platform, what makes you to do that?
Raj & DK- We stucked to our kind of films anywhere, we made our kind of films anywhere. We made dark and gritty stuff and we made silly subversive films too. I thought, let me stretch the limit of censorship, now i can explore more. With “The Family Man” we decided to explore more than we do in a film.
Q. You are known for whacky comedies, people expected you to come with something in line of Go Goa Gone, then why this subject?
Raj & DK- We have always been trying various genres. “Go Goa Gone’ is still an example, in “Shor In The City” we showcased darker side of the city and also there was a humourous comedy. So it was like handling various genres. We chose this subject because this is a very relevant subject and we always wanted to do a relevant subject.
Q. Why did you choose Amazon Prime and not the other platform like Netflix and Zee 5?
Raj & DK- They came to us first. Amazon came to us first. We signed like way before, almost 3 years ago when Netflix wasn’t even making series in India. We wanted to write it well so we took an year to finish the writing.
Q. Saif Ali Khan has became a Star after Sacred Games and since you have worked with him, was he your first choice for The Family Man?
Raj & DK- No. He wasn’t. Not for this. Saif, I would come up with something very interesting characters with him. This is Manoj Bajpayee’s fitting, i can’t think of any other actor for “The Family Man”.
Q. You have made horror comedies adding humour into it, that so many people started following it. But Stree is that one Film which people really want to go ahead and you have already said it but what is the final status on it?
Raj & DK- We had lots of offers. I think we should cement ourselves as Horror Comedy makers. With “Stree” the milestone is set, so we are in no hurry to make a horror comedy, we will rather put out some other fresh ideas. We have 2 movies coming, we have 2 Series coming up.
Q. Do you any have plans to work separately?
Raj & DK- We started together. We make films together. We work as a collaborater for a film and we will continue doing the same. In fact, right now we see the strength of actually having 2 people together. We feel it wouldn’t have been possible without 2 people.
