The love lust confusion

first_imgIs this show inspired from any real incident/person? How did you guys balance fiction, while keeping in mind the real issues addressed in the show?Victor: What inspired me to go ahead with this show was the intriguing journey of a woman who I’d met a few years ago. She had a similar list of desires like the protagonist of the show (Poroma) currently has. This lady was in many ways the muse behind the plot line for this show. Once that was in place, the concept was built and created with the characters who were part of my surrounding environment to give it a realistic feel/vibe.

Majority of us in the cast, while acting, would witness certain moments on the set where we felt ‘OMG!!! I’ve been through this before’ or ‘I’ve said this exact sentence before.’ It is rare to get to be part of such well-written content and I feel really blessed that Victor and Neha believed in me. As the protagonist of the story is inspired by a real person, what all did you keep in mind while choosing the actor? Also Read – Physical therapy better for low back painVictor: For me, it was important that the lead character, Poroma looked Bengali, spoke the language and above all had to be extremely subtle in her acting. Poroma is one who roams with the look of uncertainty and confusion on her face wherever she goes. For this, I needed a girl who is a calm head. The moment I saw Tara, I knew that she is my Poroma. She fits the role like a glove. Tara, how did you land up in this show? Tara: It is quite a long story, but to cut it short, I met Victor, the director, and writer of the story, and knew that I had to work with him as I absolutely loved his vision for the show. Luckily he felt I was perfect for Poroma’s part. As an actor which season was more fun to shoot? Tara: Without a doubt, Kolkata schedule of season 2 was the best. We had a blast shooting there and also eating the yummy food in the ‘City of Joy’. As this is a new concept, what were the initial expectations from the show? Victor: As this show is more about the story of millennials, while making the show we thought that it would attract youngsters more. There are people like Poroma in every corner of India. And to be honest, even now, we get several messages from fans who thank us for creating a story like this, one that they can highly relate to. The biggest confusion that the youth today faces is between love and lust. By giving them a show that speaks about this dilemma in their life, we were very optimistic and confident that the show would do wonders and strike the right chord with them. But what surprised us the most is the response that we received from the older adults too – who have lived this life and now reminisce about it. For them, this show spoke about their secret lives and we were just happy to connect to them as well. Which is your favourite part/scene of the show? Victor: As a creator, I can’t choose any particular scene. Tara: I think a scene that I’ll absolutely cherish till the very end was where I’m painting a wall with Momo (Mohini Shimpi) and also Jet Skiing with Abir (Shiv Pandit). I know this is not the conventional answer, but both scenes were very special for different reasons for me. I think I really loved the scenes with Abir and Poro when she goes over to his place and then they spend the night and morning after together. What is one piece of advice Paromo Sarkar wants to share with other confused ‘Poromas’ out there? Tara: Don’t judge yourself. It’s okay to be confused and make mistakes as long as you self-reflect, accept them and try and grow from them. What do you think is one similarity and one difference between Poroma and Tara? Tara: I think the similarity is Poro and I have few friends, but the ones that we do, are close to us like family. And the difference is that sometimes Poro acts without thinking things through. I have always been the opposite and can really over-think things sometimes. Is there a third season. When is it scheduled to release? Will there be new characters? Victor: Viu is in a much better position to come out and let fans of the show know if there will be a third season. But if we plan on the third season anytime in future, you can be absolutely sure that there will be new additions to this highly-appreciated show.last_img
