‘Don’t see any difference between male or female director’
Actor Pulkit Samrat, who is gearing up for the release of filmmaker Divya Khosla Kumar’s romantic drama film Sanam Re, says he does not see any difference between a male or a female director.
Pulkit, who has mainly starred in films directed by male director till now, has been directed by a female director for the first time.
He, however, feels that there is no difference between the two genders when it comes to direction.
“I don’t see any different between a male or a female director. It’s only about being a director and having the full control and do justice to the story,” said Pulkit.
“Divya is very prepped up and very passionate about her work. She wrote the characters so strong on paper that it made our job a little easier to depict them onscreen,” added the actor, who has starred in films like Fukrey, O Teri and Bangistan.
Sanam Re, which is slated to release on Friday, also stars Vicky Donor fame actor Yami Gautam. Sharing his experience of working with the actor, Pulkit said: “ She completely forgot us while shooting in the school at Chelsea in Shimla because that was the school where her school used to go for competitions. She definitely relived her childhood days there. She used to tell all her experiences there.”
“For preparations we even had to go through each others’ school photographs. It was a fun experience.”
Apart from them, Sanam Re also stars veteran actor Rishi Kapoor and Urvashi Rautela.
