Konkona Sen Sharma may have impressed the audience with her performances but Kalki Koechlin says the actress is also a fantastic director with great understanding of the craft. The “Ek Thi Daayan” star is all set with her directorial debut “A Death in the Gunj”.
“Konkona is a very smart, self assured director. She knows exactly what she wants from the artists and is very clear in her vision. That clarity also helps the actors to perform well,” Kalki told PTI.
“A Death in the Gunj” is a coming-of-age story which traces the journey of five individuals who are on a holiday. The “Waiting” actress plays an Anglo-Indian in the movie and says she couldn’t believe Konkona was directing for the first time because of her clarity and insight into the craft.
“It was really an amazing experience to be directed by her. I couldn’t believe it was her first time as a director. I think it is because she has grown up in a film family which has given her a deep insight of the craft.”
“A Death in the Gunj” has an ensemble cast of actors like Vikrant Massey, Gulshan Devaiah, Tanuja Mukherjee, Om Puri, Tillotama Shome, and also stars Konkona’s estranged husband Ranvir Shorey. The upcoming film has been produced by Honey Trehan and filmmaker Abhishek Chaubey’s production company -MacGuffin Pictures.
