What are your expectations with your latest film, ‘Mayaboti’?
Tisha: The expectations are rather high, because if the story is intriguing, it is meant to attract the audience to the cinemas. Besides, the stellar cast gave their very best in this film, making it a true work of art.
Yash: Apart from having a fascinating story line and an amazing cast, the director did not leave any stones unturned. We have all worked really hard for this project, hence the expectations are high.
Does the film give out a message to the audience?
Tisha: It surely does, but I would not like to disclose it at the moment. That is for the audience to discover once they reach the cinema halls. All I would like to say at the moment is, every human being has the right to disagree, and we must all respect that.
Yash: Likewise, I would not like to spill the beans as of now. However, I would like to add that one will surely find the film entertaining along with its message.
How was the experience like shooting at the infamous brothel of Daulatdia?
Tisha: I visited the place thrice for shooting. The workers were very welcoming, which in turn was helpful for our team. Some of them told us stories, while others danced and sang. Their friendly behaviour turned the atmosphere rather favourable.
Yash: It was a first-time experience for me and I had so many memorable moments. I felt the workers there were helpless. However, we did not face any trouble, in fact, they enjoyed our presence.
Could you both describe your respective characters in ‘Mayaboti’?
Tisha: I play the character Maya, a simple girl from the village who likes to sing. The plot mostly revolves around her. She will face extreme hardships, through which she fights to see the light of day.
Yash: I play Iqbal in the film. My father is a law enforcement officer. I have my fair share of troubles with my family, and at one point, come across Maya. This role helped me rediscover myself.
What would you like to convey to the audience?
Tisha: A lot of hard work goes behind making a film, and we do all that for the audience. We would like them to go to the cinemas to watch the film.
Yash: On a similar note, I would like everyone to go to the theatres with their friends, families and loved ones to watch Mayaboti.
What are you two currently busy with?
Tisha: I am currently busy with the promotion of Mayaboti. I will start shooting for Dipankar Dipon’s Dhaka 2040 in the near future.
Yash: I am shooting for two films recently. One is called Adom and the other is Poran.
