What was the most rewarding part of being involved in this project?
It is a big film for me and I feel that it is like slamming a double century in a test match. The film is one of the biggest tragedies in India and the role I have is an outstanding one. I felt that the film is a huge tribute to the victims – people who died or were maimed by the gas tragedy.
Why did you want to be a part of Bhopal – A Prayer for Rain?
I got this film after the Ram Gopal Varma produced Main Madhuri Dixit Banna Chahti Hoon. I liked the script the most and my character was so good and I felt that I could do a lot of justice to my talent with this role. The director Ravi Kumar was very convincing with the way he wanted to narrate the film.
What was the most unsettling part of this project for you?
The film is about what happened one night in Bhopal. The title Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain is a very poignant one. The gases are those that emerged from water and then at one point of time, you needed water desperately to wash off the pain inflicted by it.
Do you expect Bhopal – A Prayer for Rain to have an effect on the lives of the people who were victims of the Bhopal disaster?
I reckon that it will be an emotional journey for them and it will help create awareness about the hazards of the problem for others. They will surely realize that others can learn from the mistakes committed earlier and they will feel that this film will help safeguard our children in the future.
Do you think a film like Bhopal – A Prayer for Rain might change perceptions enough to change the behaviors of global corporations?
Certainly. In fact people will stop taking things for granted. People will become more responsible and will understand how to prevent issues like this cannot just cause huge damage to people but also hamper their credibility.
