Sanam Teri Kasam with Harshvardhan Rane and none other than Pakistani star Mawra Hocane, which was released five years ago, on February 5 to be precise. On that occasion, the writer-director duo – Vinay Sapru and Radhika Rao – recalled that the film lacked Bollywood superstars. They also tell an interesting story about how they ended up choosing Hokan as the Telugu brahmin in the film.
Sanam Terry Kassam is a romantic tragedy based on Erich Segal’s 1970 love story, reports IANS. “As we wrote this film, we drew every moment, character and dialogue from our private lives. Saru (played by Hodjane) is a Telugu brahmin and lives as a family (co-director) Radhika (Rao). The boy belongs to him. something like my background, “said Sapru. “There is also inspiration from mythology – Shiv Puran. As in Indian fairy tales, the marriage of a daughter who is not blessed by her father is not usually considered a successful marriage.”
Rao added, “During the casting we had the opportunity to portray the existing stars, but we imagined that the feeling of a tragic love story could only come from completely new and fresh people. It was great to see a Muslim girl like Mavra. Hoxhane plays the character of a brahmin. He doesn’t know about the character’s culture, but he penetrates the skin. “”
Sanam Terry Kassam has marked Bollywood’s first and only Hocane project.
