The makers of the Inkaar have come up with an interesting concept to promote the film – the Inkaar calendar, which talks about men’s point of view versus women’s point of view. As per reports, within 24 hours of the calender’s release, it registered more than 1,44,000 people downloading.
Meanwhile, if an insider is to be believed, parts of the film have been inspired by director Sudhir Mishra’s real life. “Most of Sudhir’s films have been inspired by real-life incidents. But in Inkaar there are shades from Sudhir’s own life. The story of the film is about the discovery of a new talent, how Arjun Rampal’s character grooms Chitrangada and shapes her to become the creative director of an advertising agency. And once she gets groomed she chooses to take her decisions.
This angle of the creator and the muse is to a large extent inspired by Sudhir and Chitrangada. Though the film then goes on to be played out as a courtroom drama, the premise of the story as far as the mentor and the muse is concerned echoes with that of Sudhir and Chitrangada,” reveals the source.
Sudhir says, “The roles of women I write are slightly mysterious and they are women who will never totally belong to you, yet are feminine and attractive. Chitrangada personifies that for me and I don’t have to convince her as she just comes and plays it. She is quite strong-willed. For me, she is an actor and as an actor I find her interesting. I like the fact that she is somewhere else and she comes and works well with me.”
