6 Bollywood Directors Take Us Behind Memorable Moments From Their Films, Film Companion
Director Shakun Batra reveals that one of the first drafts of the scene didn’t have the plumber in it. “Tt started to feel very dry. I realized I needed an outsider to take the edge off the scene and bring a certain lightness to it,” he says. “At a craft level I really wanted to make it look like I was documenting a real family argument. I didn’t want to rely on the tools of drama, which is dramatic lighting, dramatic lensing, dramatic background music. I was very excited to break the scene down in a way that it feels like it is all happening in real time,” says Batra.
