Behind closed doors

August 3, 2006
Comic film Darwaaza Band Rakho is all set to release this Friday. Actor-turned-director J D Chakravarty's film has been promoted as a laugh riot with twists and turns every five minutes.

Here's a look at the film's four major players:

Aftab Shivdasani

I'm playing a small time crook, Ajay. He and his friends are armed and have kidnapped a rich businessman's daughter for money. They are not professional gangsters, but they can be dangerous. They put up in a conservative Gujarati household. Anybody who steps into the house becomes a hostage, knowingly or unknowingly, and then there are a series of events -- and it's very funny.

This film is absolutely crazy. We shot it in one house and there were about 35 of us actors on one set and about 40 odd crew members. It was hot and humid. At the same time, we enjoyed it because there was great chemistry between all the actors. Everybody has their own track happening and their own reason for what they are doing. Besides, there's the fact that they are hostages. It becomes a circus as the film progresses.

My equation with Ram Gopal Varma is as good as ever. He's someone I respect a lot and would like to work with over and over again.
