Kajol, who has collaborated with filmmaker Pradeep Sarkar for Helicopter Eela can’t stop gushing about her director. The actress feels that Sarkar, who has made films like Mardaani, Parineeta among others, is one of the few directors who still makes relevant films.
Kajol says, “He has just recently joined Instagram so that was a shocker. He has a great sense of humor and it’s evident at any given day and time. You don’t get that older judgmental feel from him or his films.”
The 63-year-old director also doesn’t believe in raising his decibel on sets. “Everybody wants to work with a director who will get the unexpected out of them and he does that without screaming and shouting on sets and doesn’t make you feel pressurised,” she added.
The actress who plays a single mother in the film says that everyone has a pre-conceived notion of what a perfect parent should be like.
“In our head, consciously or unconsciously, we have an idea of what a perfect mother is and we have to live up to that image. Nobody will come to your face and say that you are a bad mom but they may give you these side looks that will indicate that you are not a perfect parent,” she adds.
