Q: your reason behind choosing that concept..?
Ans: As we all know, most of Punjabi films are coming they are comedy based. That topic is a bit different according to today’s scenario . And I think that kind of concept is coming to Punjabi cinema after 15-20 years. And also there is a great message “ਪਿਓ ਦਾਦੇ ਦੀ ਜਾਇਦਾਦ ਕਿਸੇ ਨਾਲ ਨਹੀਂ ਜਾਣੀ,ਇਹ ਧਰਤੀ ਤਾਂ ਏਥੇ ਹੀ ਸੀ ਏਥੇ ਹੀ ਰਹਿ ਜਾਣੀ“.
Q: Shareek’s team is really talented team. How was your experience working with them..??
Ans: all the members of our team are great. They are really professional and talented people. I never feel that I’m a new comer here. They are really supportive people. Whenever you work with that kind of people you feel proud off so am I.
Q: Any memorable moment..? ?
Ans: here I would like to mention that I am a great fan of Guggu Gill Ji. I grow up by watching his movies. And my first scene was with him. It’s felt so good that I’m working with a guy that I’m praising so much.. I will not forget that moment for rest of my life.
Q: on which locations the movie been captured on camera …??
Ans: well the 80% of the film been shoot in near by villages of Bhatinda and Mansa and the rest been shoot in England.
Q: what was the reason behind shooting in Malwa area.??
Ans: The team tried to find the things in Doaaba first but couldn’t them like old buildings , old tinda (ਖੂਹ/ਟਿੰਡਾ) ..then we found them in Malwa. Every character in the movie has a journey. Jimmy Shergill Ji played a character which has a journey of 40-45 years. So we needed to create a atmosphere of 1990 – 2007 – 2015…so that was the reason behind choosing the locations in Malwa area.
Q: Film’s music and trailer been appreciated everywhere. Tell us something about music. ??
Ans: ya everyone is talking about the film and music. If we talk about the music. It’s composed by Mr. Jaidev Kumar ji. Sippy Gill‘s song ‘ ਘਰਾਂ ਵਿੱਚੋਂ ਕੱਢ ਕੱਢ ਠੋਕਨੇ ਸ਼ਰੀਕ ਗੱਡੀ ਚਾੜ ਦੇਣੇ ਨੇ” ‘ is making buzz all over. Apart from that there is a really beautiful song by Micky Singh .there is another song by javed from Pakistan. Which reveal the story of the film…
Q: what is different we will see in that movie..??
Ans: it’s a multi starer high voltage family drama. The people will feel that is there story. Because when we were child we loved each other but as we grow the divide rule always comes and make separations in a family. According to me Shareek‘ word is worst word then enemy. Enemy is a enemy but Shareek is our blood, our brothers and relatives which is so difficult to digest. The word Shareek’ was for brotherhood but not anymore… Now a days brotherhood is a different concept and Shareek is a different. That’s the moral of the story as well. ਜੇ ਭਾਈ ਨੂੰ ਭਾਈ ਨਾ ਮਾਰੇ, ਜੱਟ ਨੂੰ ਜੱਟ ਨਾ ਮਾਰੇ,ਜੇ ਪਿਓ ਨੂੰ ਪੁੱਤ ਨਾ ਮਾਰੇ,ਜੱਟ ਨੁੰ ਜ਼ਮੀਨ ਨਾ ਮਾਰੇ,ਤਾਂ ਦੋਸਤੋ ਇਹ ਕੌਮ ਨੀ ਮਰ ਸਕਦੀ” …
At the end we wish all the best to the entire team of film Shareek.
