After over a decade,
In a press conference held in Delhi on 27th February,
Sharmila was mesmerized with Suraj as his presence behind the camera was so comforting to me he is so calming so I have to give my best for him. I have done this film for him somehow. this movie is a 3 generation movie. Sharmila Tagore revealed that she cried 'profusely' after watching her film Gulmohar for the third time, adding to it she said not me only, even her daughter (Saba) has watched it multiple times and she is obsessed with the dialogues of this movie .
Furthermore, talking about the similarity between her and the character that she plays in Gulmohar, Sharmila ji said, “Yes, in a way, my experiences and the stage of my life and age of where I am. I have taken hard decisions and I have decision contrary to the social expectation and I realized there is no other way to, you cannot like say you’re a single person playing a tennis match and there are lots of other so if you take them all, live accounting to other people’s perspective then your perspective uh in any case you won’t be able to please anybody. So, you might as well do what you want to do.”
She added, “Hopefully not hurting anybody. But it is your right to express yourself the way you wish to and live the life that you want to so that you have minimum regrets. Regrets there always will be but you’ll have less regrets. You can’t say because of that person I didn’t do this. So, I think I’ve lived like that and I’ve found some resonance in Kusum.”
