Rasika Dugal: Collaborating with Naseeruddin Shah again was a wonderful experience
‘Happy that there is a wide audience for short films,’ she said
Naseeruddin Shah and Rasika Dugal recently starred in a short film, The Broken Table. Directed by Chintan Sarda, the film, which was released on the Large Short Films YouTube page, is a tale of love and individual identity. This is the second time Naseeruddin and Rasika have come together. Previously, they have collaborated on the 2022 short The Miniaturist of Junagadh.
Rasika plays a budding psychologist and a young caregiver in The Broken Table. Talking about people’s response to the film, she said, “I am delighted that this simple yet unusual story about love and acceptance is resonating with people. I am always intrigued by the precision required for storytelling in the short film format. And I am happy that there is a wide audience for short films which is noting and appreciating the nuances of this kind of storytelling.”
Rasika also shared her experience of working with Naseeruddin for the second time. "Collaborating with Naseer Sahab again was a wonderful experience. Every moment with him on set is a masterclass. His commitment to the work never ceases to amaze me and brings out the best in me as an actor,” she added.
While Naseeruddin will be next seen in the web series Taj: Divided by Blood, Rasika has Adhura, Fairy Folk, Lord Curzon Ki Haveli, Little Thomas and Mirzapur 3 in her kitty.
