After Irfan-led road trip movie Karwan (2018), Arkash Khurana has again provided for the directory Baton Mismead. The upcoming series of the era, which revolves around two students creating applications while dealing with peers and professors, includes Ranvijay Singha, YouTube sensation Prajakta Koli and ludo actor Rohit Saraf.
“The show is for young adults, so almost the entire cast includes kids. I realized I was twice the age of most of the cast on set,” the director said with a laugh, adding that one needs patience when dealing with youngsters. “Since I have theatrical backgrounds, I have a threshold of tolerance. I realized they came from a different world. They can surprise and shock you at the same time. On set, I took a new lingo from them.”
As captain of the ship, Khurana not only worked towards shaping the project, but also created a happy atmosphere that promotes creativity. “My goal has always been to create an environment that is conducive to team work. I run away when work feels like a job. I’ve done this with a lot of corporate jobs.”
Written by Ghazal Dhaliwal, the Netflix series is Sandhya Menon’s 2017 book, while Dimple is an adaptation of Metishi. The book was published in the U.S. When set in, the writer-director duo decided to re-imagine their story in Rajasthan. “We wanted a setting where we could present old thinking with new age beliefs, which is the theme underlying this show. I wrote the last two films I directed, so I consciously wanted to work with someone else’s story at this point. , Explains Khurana, who is currently shooting a Rashmi rocket.
