Suhasini Mani Ratnam: I planned to rope in Kamal Haasan for this anthology
The actor spoke to senior journalist Kaveree Bamzai, as a part of Cinema Express' Timepass
In this edition of Time Pass, we have Suhasini Mani Ratnam in conversation with senior journalist Kaveree Bamzai about working during the Covid19 lockdown for Putham Pudhu Kaalai, nepotism and more.
“I wrote about six short stories during the lockdown, and when Amazon approached me. I pitched two of them, and one of them was Coffee, Anyone?” Suhasini says. As the film was made during the lockdown, the resources that were available were limited. “I roped in my father, Charuhasan, my cousin, Anu (Haasan), who lives across the street, and Shruti (Haasan), with whom I had developed a special bond through video calls during the lockdown. My father couldn't be part of the story due to an injury. I even had ideas to rope in my uncle Kamal Haasan but decided against it.”
