Tahira Kashyap Khurrana’s Sharmajee Ki Beti was recently premiered at the ongoing MAMI Mumbai Film Festival. The film tells the struggles of a group of women and girls from different age groups to lead a normal life. The film, however, is a light-hearted affair peppered with humour.
Tahira Kashyap on Mumbai playing a part in Sharmajee Ki Beti, “It took me 7 years to love this city”
After the screening, Tahira said that all the characters in the film, played by Divya Dutta, Saiyami Kher, Sakshi Tanwar, Vanshika Taparia, Arista Mehta and others, are inspired from her. “The best part is that I got to make this film. The saddest part is that you all know a part of me is in all those characters. You know my struggles as well; the period thing included (menstruation is a part of the film). Every character had a part of me,” she said.
A character in Sharmajee Ki Beti is shown struggling to adjust to a new life in Mumbai after migrating in the city from Patiala. Touching upon this, Tahira added, “It’s something I have observed in other women. Yes, Bombay really takes time… It took me seven years to love this city and now I am in love with it. It’s when you find your mission and goal is when you find happiness. I am glad I was able to do that. I think it’s never too late to find your wings and mission and go for it.”
Tahira is happy that despite Sharmajee Ki Beti being a story of a group of women, it is produced by three men – Atul Kasbekar, Tanuj Garg and Sameer Nair. “Sharmajee Ki Beti is a film written and directed by a woman but supported by men, which again shows the evolving perspective of the society. I had fantastic collaborators, and this is entirely, a team effort. Today, the audiences are eager to see a film based on women, which again, is a monumental shift. My greatest hope is that this film continues to resonate with audiences, just as it has resonated within me,” she said.
