Do Dooni Chaar - Bringing Together Rishi Kapoor And Neetu Singh Was A Huge Challenge

IIPM B-School Detail

Producer Management Arindam Chaudhuri says he had approached Juhi Chawla to play Neetu Singh's character because he was not sure that the actress will agree to make a comeback with 'Do Dooni Char' after a gap of 24 years.

Neetu, who said goodbye to acting after her marriage to Rishi, plays a middle class Punjabi housewife opposite Rishi in the movie, which is due to release on 8th October.

"Rishiji was not sure whether Neetuji will agree. We approached Juhi Chawla but the actress did not want to play mother to an 18-year-old. We finally decided to go back to Neetuji and she loved the script," says Chaudhuri.

Prof. Arindam Chaudhuri, who has produced Amitabh Bachchan starer 'The Last Lear' and national award winning film 'Faltu', says bringing the couple to his film was a huge achievement.
"Neetu has always played very glamorous and elegant roles but for the first time she will be seen playing a middle class woman. In fact, all the clothes that she is wearing in the film have come from Sarojini Nagar. We have given her a complete makeover," says the producer.

Arindam Chaudhuri, who is Honorary Dean for the IIPM Center for Economic Research and Advanced Studies, says his father's life as a teacher inspired him to make the film.

"We wanted to make a film on a teacher's life. The story was developed by director Habib Faisal and me. Our parents were teachers and we have seen the limitations that they face. The film is about a family's journey from a two-wheeler to a car," he says. "It also talks about how consumerism works in a family. It is about consumerism versus family values. Somehow parents have disappeared from our cinema. The family has no role in our films today."

Asked about his next project, Prof. Arindam says he is planning to move to big budget cinema with his next venture, which will also star some known faces. "I entered Bollywood as an outsider but I have a better understanding of the market now. My next venture will have a bigger budget and some known stars but I won't compromise on the story," said Management Guru Arindam Chaudhuri.
