ATKD pair on visit to Arvindbhai Khatri & Sons in Vadodara
Kinjal Pandya, who is currently wowing everyone with her TV soap 'Qubool Hai', has done copious Hindi serials and has also worked in Gujarati theatre. Now, she is gearing up for her debut Aa Te Kevi Dunniya, a Gujarati film, produced by Vijay Khatri under the banner of Bhagat Entertainment and written & directed by Tejas Padiaa.
Ask Kinjal how she bagged the film and she says, "I always wanted to do a Gujarati film but I wasn't getting the desired projects. They were typical Gujarati films. Though initially I was refusing Aa Te Kevi Dunniya when I got a call, I decided to do the film once I heard the story. I liked it so much that there was no point in giving a second thought."
Besides the story, Kinjal divulges that she took up Aa Te Kevi Dunniya for its Bollywood style presentation. "As our tagline suggests 'A Bollywood Gujarati Film', right from cinematography to other technicalities, Aa Te Kevi Dunniya has been packaged, designed a la Bollywood style. This was also one of the major reasons for me doing the film. I was so glad that a Gujarati film was being made on this level."
While Kinjal is disheartened about Gujarati filmmakers not giving enough attention to Gujarati Cinema, she is hopeful that Aa Te Kevi Dunniya will enhance it. She says, "There are so many talented Gujarati filmmakers out there. But sadly they don't want to exhibit it here. If they can churn out good Bollywood flicks, then why can't they make a good Gujarati film? Earlier Gujarati Cinema was really meaningful. Of late it has lost its charm. But I believe films like Aa Te Kevi Dunniya will once again up the Gujarati level."
Talking about her role, Kinjal says, "I am playing an over enthusiastic rich young girl, who is crazy for finding a suitable partner for her and getting married. She is ever restless single, who is on the look out to get mingled. My character's name is 'Anjali', she is very 'jhalli' type, much on the lines of Kareena Kapoor from Jab We Met."
While the story of Aa Te Kevi Dunniya is about doing good deeds, Kinjal also believes in the theory of Karmas. "I totally believe in the Karma theory. And when people will watch the film, they too will relate with it and take back home some nice message. The film will win over hearts of the audiences with its comedy and lovely message. It will leave a mark on the minds," says Kinjal.
She adds, " Aa Te Kevi Dunniya is a concept which has not been tried in Bollywood or Hollywood earlier. This is a fresh film. The story and idea of the film is so powerful that it will make people sit back and think. At least, after working on this film, I have started thinking in the direction of doing good deeds."
Kinjal is all praise for writer-director Tejas Padiaa and other crew of the film, "Tejas bhai is very down-to-earth and hilarious. The producers were so co-operative and helpful all the time. The entire team of Aa Te Kevi Dunniya has been supportive. I had an amazing time with everyone. Truly, Aa Te Kevi Dunniya will be an unforgettable experience for all of us."
Aa Te Kevi Dunniya also stars Raj Jatania, Yatin Parmar, Sunil Vishrani, Jayesh More, Krishna Rawal, RajKumar Kanojia, Falguni Desai, Padmesh Pandit and Sanat Vyas and is all set to release on 9th January, 2015.
