Excerpts from the interview:
Why Slicing Chai? How completely different is it to work in movies and OTT initiatives?
One by no means has a slicing chai alone, it’s all the time ‘do slicing’ (two half cups of tea). And, I believe it’s a stunning factor really. I’m glad we may do it earlier than anyone else did. How completely different is working in movies and on OTT? I don’t know. I learn a script. I prefer it. No matter I’m informed to play, I play. That’s how it’s for me. It’s not a giant subject, neither is it difficult.
You might be doing extra work than ever earlier than.
I’m all over the place. However there has not been a swap per say. As I’ve all the time mentioned, I’m so snug with my home and little den. I like being there. So, it’s important to get me one thing actually good for me to get out of that consolation zone. For me, if there’s a good script, I’ll do it. I can’t do crap. I’d quite keep house, go on a vacation or hang around with my children.
Slicing Chai looks as if a love story of a middle-aged couple. We don’t see such tales a lot in our movies.
Films are a special ball sport. They’re made for a special cause. They’re made to generate some huge cash. And, you generate extra income when you’ve two younger children falling in love. The second you modify age, all these bits of enjoyable go away. It’s a completely different relationship. It’s a completely different type of love, extra mature love. ‘Uss pyar mein theraav aa gaya hai‘ (Mature relationships have a type of calmness). It’s deeper and completely different. It’s not enjoyable anymore. It’s educating. You be taught from that love. It’s enjoyable to look at a younger couple singing and dancing round timber, and doing disco. It’s visually interesting, and it’s enterprise.
So has the viewers developed and would they not like some mature storytelling additionally?
That’s why Fashionable Love has come. For instance, if in case you have a really actual love story on display screen, it’s laborious for folks to go and watch it. They’ll anticipate one thing like this to return on TV. So why not carry it on TV instantly by OTT?
If you go to look at a movie in a theatre, it’s a completely different feeling.. There’s a very small quantity of people that really watch smart cinema. The vast majority of our nation watches pure leisure, which incorporates your south remakes or Salman Khan’s motion pictures.

Within the Fashionable Love: Mumbai trailer, we see you asking Chitrangada, “Meri tie kahaan hai?” How completely different are you as a husband in actual life?
Personally, Maria (Arshad’s spouse Maria Goretti) asks me, “Meri tie kahaan hai”. I believe I’m fairly an developed man. There was a time once I had no work and Maria was working. She was the bread earner of the household. For 3 years, I used to be sitting at house and taking care of the home. I used to prepare dinner and clear the home. I don’t care about all this stuff. I’ve been like this all my life. That is how I’m made, and I’m positive with it. For me, it’s fairly a balanced factor between a person and a lady. I’ve no qualms in saying that Maria is a much more clever individual than I’m. She is much extra educated. Tomorrow, if she is working and I’m not, it received’t hassle me. This has occurred in our life and it didn’t hassle me in any respect.
