Veteran actress Rohini Hattangady who is currently sinking in the success of her recent blockbuster Marathi film Baipan Bhari Deva directed by Kedar Shinde said that she admires Shinde for his directing chops and how skillfully he carves every scene without interfering within our screen space.
“I admire Kedar for knowing what point needed to be conveyed through each character and which character needed how much footage,” said Hattangady in an interview with Film Companion.
“It’s not like one character after the other was just speaking. Kedar gives each of his actors space to perform. He first lets us perform and then he carved out a scene from our performances. Since we are all from the theatre, we just performed the scene. I didn't know on whom the camera angle was placed or who was focused during the scene - so even we were pleasantly surprised when we saw the final result. It’s ultimately in the director’s hands to decide what to keep and what not to.”
From playing negative role in Chaalbaaz (1989) alongside Anupam Kher and Sridevi, Hattangady has also played significant characters in films like Gandhi (1982), Agneepath (1990), Saaransh (1984), Munnabhai MBBS (2003) to name a few.
