They are starting a new innings of their life in the enchanting alleys of Bollywood, but how exactly are they doing it? Well, by holding up a mirror to...“the new innings of fresh-out-of-school students as they enter the warm embrace of college life! That phase of life when, you can both kill and die for your friends,” beam actors Nimisha Mehta, Sanchay Goswami and Ansh Bagri, in Chandigarh to spread the word about their upcoming comedy film Days of Tafree — In Class; Out of Class (slated to release on September 23).

The film, as the name suggests, draws upon the blissful days of college life. It traces the ups and downs of a group of seven college buddies. The movie is an adaptation of the highest-grossing Gujarati film Chhello Divas – A New Beginning, which was released last year. So, is it an exact replication? “The basic storyline is the same, but while Chhello had elements relating to Gujarat at its fulcrum, the Bollywood version has a Delhi twist to it. There are other subtle differences as well,” responds Ansh, a self-taught artiste, with no formal training in acting.

Evoking nostalgia

Is the film just targeting college students then? Nimisha Mehta, who was earlier seen in TV mini-series — Aisha — my virtual girlfriend’, replies, “It would be a hasty conclusion to term it as a movie catering to the young brigade alone. Of course it will strike a chord with the college-goers for obvious reasons, but I can assure you that their parents and grandparents will enjoy it too.”

Universal appeal

When someone devoid of a Godfather ventures into the realm of cinema, it is indeed tough! While for Nimisha, it was the “great reach of cinema and its power to function as a life-changer by stirring people’s consciousness” that acted as a strong force,

Sanchay reveals that it was his association with theatre “as part of National School of Drama, Delhi (NSD), and his pure love for movies” that governed his choice. As for their style icon, Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor emerges as a unanimous choice. Three cheers!
