Aahana Kumra: Love women calling the shots on set

When working in a male dominated world, it is exciting to see women take up the baton and run the show. Aahana Kumra, who has wrapped up the Kajol-starrer Salaam Venky, agrees, having worked with Alankrita Srivastava in Lipstick Under My Burkha (2016) in the past. “They see you differently. The kind of suggestions I get from a female-director [comes] from a woman’s point of view. They tell me how I should be feeling at that moment, but also to be restrained. It has been incredible, like how Alankrita was. It is lovely to hear a woman’s voice. I love the idea of women calling the shot on set,” says Kumra, who was excited to work in Revathy’s directorial venture, Salaam Venky.

Hoping to imbibe some of the director’s qualities, she says, “Revathy is unreal. I have never met a human being like her. If I could even have five per cent of her patience, politeness and compassion, I would consider myself lucky. She is a sensitive, sensible, and a beautiful person.” Talking about the atmosphere on the set, the actor adds that the shoot had a “beautiful energy”. “She wanted that energy on set. It is motherly, sisterly, and friendly. It comes down to what your experience has been with your director.”
