New Delhi: Demonetization (demonetization) played an integral role in filmmaker Anurag Kashyap ‘s film ‘Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai’ (Choked: paisa bolta hai). Anurag Kashyap says that it helped him to connect the story of money and marriage in a smooth way. The filmmaker said, ‘Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai (Choked: paisa bolta hai) was always a great idea and a good script but lacked the’ X-factor ‘. Demonetization worked to tie it together.
In reference to making the film ‘Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai’ (Choked: paisa bolta hai), Anurag Kashyap told the media, ‘It was a good process to work on the film. It was a long wait. It started in the year 2015 with a script. At that time, there was no demonetization and when it happened, it had to be included in the script and that’s why we rewrote the script. ‘
He further said, ‘The implicit sentiments kept working on it. Sayami Kher came in the year 2017 and Roshan Mathew came in 2018. We shot the film in 2019.
It is worth mentioning that in the year 2016, the Government of India had decided to demonetize 500 and 1,000 rupee old notes by demonetization (demonetization) in order to take out black money, eliminate fake currency and tackle terrorism funding. After this decision, there were long queues in the banks of the country, people were looking for different ways to replace the old notes with new ones and many big events like marriage started getting disrupted. Kashyap has tried to show something similar in the story of Sarita Pillai (Sayami) and Sushant Pillai (Roshan).
The filmmaker said, ‘The film was always about money and marriage, but only when we were shooting the film, demonetization happened and it had to be a part of the film. And it was interesting to keep the film in that period so that it is not completely absurd and it looks more meaningful. Due to the demonetization, the film suddenly found a good basis. ‘Choked: Money Speaks’ is the story of a middle-class housewife. This is the story of how demonetization changes his life. It also sheds light on how she is helping her unemployed husband.
The filmmaker, known for films such as ‘Black Friday’, ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, ‘Dev D’, and ‘Ugly’, claimed, “What I normally do with this film is to get away from it.” ‘Anurag Kashyap said,’ My film making process is also changing, because the idea of the last three films that I did in them was not given to anyone else and in fact it is sometimes a It is a great help. ‘Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai’ will stream on Netflix from June 5.
