A Parallel Life
For Deepti Naval, arthouse cinema still wins over commercial cinema
Just like in her early years in the industry, Deepti Naval still prefers to take the road less travelled. “I have a weakness for off-beat cinema,” she confesses.
What reinforces Naval’s weakness are her latest films, Memories in March and Bhindi Bazaar, and her directorial debut Do Paise Ki Dhoop Chaar Aane Ki Baarish.
Naval is back on the silver screen after almost three years, and this time she promises a longer innings. Soon, she will also be seen sharing screen space with her favourite co-star of the ’80s — Farooque Shaikh — in Hema Malini’s Tell Me Oh Khuda. “Farooque used to pull my leg then and continues to do it even now. He is one of the most talented actors ever,” says Naval.
