Shweta Tripathi: Nawazuddin Siddiqui never behaved like a senior actor on the sets of Haraamkhor

Shweta Tripathi who made a fabulous debut in Neeraj Ghaywan’s Masaan is back with Haraamkhor. The lady plays the role of a 16-year-old who falls in love with her school teacher. The film stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui as her teacher. Shlok Sharma, the director of Haraamkhor worked with Nawaz in Gangs of Wasseypur. He was an assistant director with the film. Sharing her experience of working with Nawaz, Shweta said, “When I first heard that he is on board, I was a little nervous. However, there is nothing starry about Nawazuddin. He is a remarkable actor but an even better human being. He used to be like, Shweta do your scene your way.” So, did the powerhouse performer guide Shweta? “No, no…he is not the person who will turn into an acting guru on the sets. He gives a lot of space to his co-actors and is very patient,” she says.Haraamkhor was shot in real locations and the team had to wrap up fast as they had access only for a limited period of time.Shlok Sharma, the director of Haraamkhor tells us, “When I was working in Gangs of Wasseypur, I told Nawazbhai about the film. It would be my first feature film.

He heard the idea and was on board. I did not have a bound script then. We started shooting for it almost immediately. On the day of the shoot, he was like I hope the script is in place.” The idea for the film came to Shlok after a read a newspaper article about a love story between a school teacher and his student. The two were beaten up in their village and paraded on donkeys. The chirpy filmmaker states, “I felt that was one way of seeing things. You should understand the perspective of the girl and the master as well. That gave rise to Haraamkhor. There is either black or white, few see the grey in between. Why the girl fall in love with her teacher and vice versa? The film is told from the point of view of two kids. You must have seen the trailer…the story is told from the eyes of two kids. It is a fun film.”Whether it is Masaan or Haraamkhor, Shweta seems to love stories that come from India. “Yes…I feel we make superb films when we tell stories that resonate with what’s happening in India and its smaller towns. You see films like Sairat or Killa, they are brilliant because the tales are real,” says the actress. Haraamkhor had run into trouble with the Censors but the director says children above the age of 15 can watch it with parents. “I will not recommend it for younger kids,” signs off the director.
