Kaagaz 2 is an independent sequel to the 2021 social comedy movie. Just like the Pankaj Tripathi starrer, the upcoming movie is also inspired by a real-life story. Starring Anupam Kher and Satish Kaushik, the V.K. Prakash directorial also stars Smriti Kalra in a major role.
In a recent chat with OTTplay, the Suvreen Guggal fame actor shared her thoughts on her next film and her experience of working with such veteran actors.
Talking about Kher and Kaushik, the actress shared that they are an institution in themselves. "So when you enter the institution, as a student what do you do? You be a good student, and you grasp and learn as much as you can, and that is what I endeavoured to do with them. They have experience of life, the experience of work and not only experience of what is right, but they have experience of what can go wrong and what not to do. So, I have just been like a sponge absorbing all that I can. Both of them - Anupam Kher Sir and Satish Kaushik Sir are so full of energy. It's an honour to be working with them," she added.
Speaking about the forthcoming movie, Smriti mentioned, "Like the 2021 film, Kaagaz 2 is also based on an incident that happened that affected a family and that incident actually affects one and all in some or another way in our daily life. But, Kaagaz 2 is a mainstream film. It has a social message, but it has been made like a mainstream film."
When asked if the forthcoming flick will be a theatrical or direct-to-OTT release, the actress said, "I signed it as a performer, as an actor. I acted, I performed. I was creatively involved. What happens on the business side, I'm not a part of it. So I have no idea."
Kaagaz 2, which also stars Darshan Kumar and Neena Gupta, is gearing up to release soon, meanwhile, Kaagaz is available to stream on ZEE5.
