Soha Ali Khan newest film 31st October promises to open our eyes to a rather heart-wrenching real story of a Sikh family caught in middle of the 1984 riots. The film that releases alongside Mirzya, also features Vir Das playing the male protagonist. For Soha, this is a kind of role she has never delved into earlier. Here she answered some of our questions on the film.
This role is unlike anything you have done earlier. Tell us about it.
I am playing a sardarni and this is the first time I am playing a mother. It was an exhausting role. It was special nonetheless and exciting. I am greedy actor and it is rare to get a meaty, author-backed part like this. I have done drama and intense roles before. But this is different. 31st October is not a verbose film, there’s not a lot of dialogue. It is also a thrilling film with some suspense, where you want to know what happens next.
The film is based on 1984 riots. Was that a reason when you picked up the film?
I was very young when 1984 happened and I know people who were affected by it. In fact in Pataudi there is a Gurudwara that was ransacked. I have that memory. However, for me to be a part of this as an actor was to get to play a character that is different culturally from anything that I have done before. To do a period film and to do a real life character is an added responsibility. It was an exciting opportunity as an actor.
The 1984 riots have been in news on and off, due to legal proceedings. Would the film in any way try to put a closure for some of the victims?
The film is not a made to provide justice to anyone. Let’s accept that justice delayed is justice denied. The victims of 1984 will not get justice. We have made the film to share a story. It is a human interest story with 1984 as a backdrop. It is a story of a family who could have been from any religion, They happened to be Sikh.
The film apart, we cannot let you go with asking you about Saif and Kareena. They are expecting their first child. What’s the atmosphere at home?
(laughs) Obviously we are all quite excited!
