Actor Sohum Shah, who is prominently known for movies like Ship Of Thesus, Simran and Talwar is coming back with the fantasy tale of Tumbadd. He is essaying the lead role and the role of the producer for the movie. He also says that Tumbadd is like the bedtime story we used to listen in our childhood.
He says, “Actually Rahi (Anil Barve, director) brought this idea that we should go with three stories that would become one later. It’s more like bedtime stories like Vikram-Betaal or Singhasan Battissi, the stories we used to hear in our childhood.”
The film’s trailer was loved by one and all, people loved the visuals and the concept; Sohum Shah is really happy with the prerelease response, he comments: “An actor can’t do anything other than following a director’s vision. It was he who decided the look and feel of the film. See, I am not a gym freak, so when Rahi told me that you need to build muscles, I became really happy. This story evolved in last six years. Its structure, politics and redemption change a lot. It wasn’t a very ambitious film in the beginning. That’s why you would find a lot of creative involvement in the film.”
When asked, in what genre Tumbadd falls, Sohum says: “Man versus nature was definitely one of the ideas behind Tumbbad. We also wanted to talk about the natural justice. In a way, it was like Salim-Javed’s character for me who craves love from the society. My character wants acceptance and validation.”
Tumbadd releases on October 12.
