Technical advancements pose challenges for actors: Shabana Azmi

IANS  |  Panjim 

As technical advancements in cinema have opened more room for experiments in narration, veteran actress Shabana Azmi feels that it provides challenges to the performer.

"I think it has become a bit challenging for the performer to match up and bring the equal energy level every time while re-doing the scene. And as an actor you do not know which angle will be taken in the final edit," Azmi told IANS.

However, she encouraged such hard work as it helps to reach the level of perfection.

The actress' upcoming film "Idgah", directed by Piyush Panjuani, has been selected for the 10th NFDC Film Bazaar. It is based on Munshi Premchand's short story of the same name.

Sharing her shooting experience she said: "I built up a bond with the child actor who is playing my grandson in the film."

While most of the time it has been observed that adaptation of literature on celluloid is barely successful, Shabana thinks differently.

"Well, it has got another dimension. You see when you are reading a book; you are left with your own imagination whereas in film, you have a visual reference. But what's interesting in 'Idgah' is that it has taken from a short story and has expanded to a full length feature film," she said.
