Zaid also talked about his experience shooting in Kashi. He said- ‘The experience of shooting in Kashi was amazing, when I and the team went to look for the location in Banaras, we were surprised to see Kashi. This is a city where wherever you put your camera, you will find a location to shoot. The release of the movie is awaited and it should get lots of love from the audience, that’s all we want.
Banaras – How was this title chosen?
At first we were a bit confused about the title of the film. Many people suggested different titles. But, then 2-4 said, when we are shooting the entire film in Banaras, its title should also be attached to it. Finally we acted on this suggestion and ‘Banaras’ was selected. 90 percent shooting of the film has also taken place in Banaras.
You are the first debut actor whose film is releasing in five languages across the country, how are you feeling?
It is a big responsibility. It is not that we have made such a decision. The producers have trusted me and I am very happy about that. This is a big deal for me. Hopefully it will get a lot of love not only from the south but also from the audience from the north and across the country.
Will the film be ‘Banarsia Love Story’?
Of course you are going to see the whole of Banaras in the film. In this film you will get to see every street, ghat and everything. Romance and action, you are going to get it all in ‘Banaras’. Just hope the audience likes it.
This is your first film, what do you expect from it?
Just want to say, watch the movie. I can only promise you 100 percent entertainment. I can say that my film will not bore you. Hope everyone likes this movie. I would like the audience to want to see more of me.
Coming from a political background, how did you get into films?
I wanted to be an actor since childhood. He also used to participate in school-college shows. However, my father was not happy with my decision. It also took me a long time to tell him that I wanted to be an actor.
How was the experience of working with Jayathirth and Sonal?
It was wonderful. Sonal is a very big actress of the industry. He has done 7-8 films and I am a newbie. It was a little scary at first. But, working with him afterwards was a lot of fun. We had a lot of fun together.
Talking about his upcoming projects, Zayed said- I have projects, but I haven’t started reading any yet. Because right now I want to focus only on ‘Banaras’. In this film you will get to see all my avatars from romantic to action. I will announce whichever project I choose after the release of the film.
