It has been an underlying truth of the Ballewood industry that no comedy film is ever complete without the takia-kalams and the comic presence of Jaswinder Bhalla. So, with the view to make Ballewood’s first one-of-its-kind fantasy film, Mar Gaye Oye Loko a complete package for everyone alike, the movie features Jaswinder Bhalla in a special appearance in the shoes of Karamraj.
As unusual as it may sound, but this ‘special appearance’ is not very rare in the movie; for a majority aspect of the plot revolves around his role.
“My role as the Karamraj is to maintain the records of the dead & alive up in the heaven. The storyline draws a fine line of similarity between how things function on earth and up there. We have elections, we have nepotism, we have confusions and what not!,” smiles Mr. Bhalla.
Speaking about the greatest mess surrounding which the plot revolves, Mr. Bhalla quips, “The storyline keeps the readers on the hook of laughter & craziness when Yamdoot brings Gippy Grewal instead of Binnu Dhillon and the mess continues throughout the movie.”
We further talk to Mr. Bhalla about his experience on working with Gippy Grewal in the shoes of a writer & producer, to which he smiles firmly and says, “Gippy is a versatile artist who knows how to excel in every hat that he dons. As a writer, I think he has done an amazing job because Mar Gaye Oye Loko is certainly the first one-of-its-kind fantasy film of the industry, and I am affirmative that it will be loved by the audiences.”
He adjoins, “Same goes on his expertise as a producer. Throughout the shoot of the film, Gippy always maintained absolute professionalism and ensured that every artist was happy & satisfied. Although my role being a special appearance had a tentative shoot of two days, due to his time management and professional approach, my shoot was wrapped in one and a half days. He is a very systematic & professional producer and there’s a long way to go!”
With just a few days left for the movie to hit the silver screen, we cannot stop marking our calendar for August 31, 2018.
