Veteran actor Kulbhushan Kharbanda, who has teamed with Farida Jalal after a long time for YRF’s short movie “Scandal Point”, says she is a brilliant actress. The actors have collaborated for the Ankur Tewari directed love story, which narrates the story of a senior couple reliving their romantic college days when they used to drive up to a lover’s point.
“Farida ji is a brilliant actress. We have worked together many times. She is still the same. There is not an iota of change in her appearance in last 25 years. She is also a thorough professional,” Kulbhushan told PTI.
Kharbanda, 71, and the 67-year-old actress have worked together in “Pukar”, “Pinjar”, “Garv”, “Soldier” among others. The “Earth” actor said he enjoyed being the part of the short film.
“It just took a day to shoot. I had no idea about digital short films. I am technologically challenged. I don’t even know how does a link open in a mobile phone. I agreed to be a part of the film because it was coming out of Yash Raj and people associated with it are my old friends.” “Scandal Point”, a part of Y-Films’ anthology “Love Shots”, sees a sweet and efforless chemistry between Kulbhushan and Farida.
“We often come across such sweet old people in real life. It’s not that they argue always. There are many light moments between them. The script of the short was lovely,” he said.
Besides his outing in a short film, Kulbhushan is busy with Padatik Theatre’s production “Atmakatha”. The play marks the noted actor’s return to the stage after a gap of two decades.
“I get film offers. But they are not the prominent ones and I have no issues with it. I am devoting my time to the play ‘Atmakatha’. We are touring across the country with the play and the response we are receiving is phenomenal.”
