The film is directed by debutant Anirban and also features Mrinmayee Godbole as the female lead.
Days after the release of Amazon Prime Video's Mumbai Diaries 26/11, Satyajeet Dubey jumped on to the next project which is Aye Zindagi. The film marks the return of veteran actor-filmmaker Revathy in Hindi movies and also features Mrinmayee Godbole in a pivotal role. The film went on floors earlier this week and marks the directorial debut of Anirban. Now, during an exclusive interaction with OTTPlay, Satyajeet dished out a few details of Aye Zindagi.
The actor told us, "Aye Zindagi is basically about the uncertainty of life. It's about loss, hope and love. It's also about ethical organ donation. This guy who is 25-26 has no time to live, he has another six to seven months. He is through a kind of shame and misery and also denial, acceptance and everything."
While talking about Revathy's character, Satyajeet shared, "Revathy ma'am is playing a beautiful character and she's a lead counsellor. She's constantly there for this guy as a friend too."
The actor further revealed that he was in tears while reading the script of Aye Zindagi. Dubey said, "It's one of those stories that when I was reading the script, at three moments I had to stop as I was choking and crying. It is such a moving script and it's not just about death."
Satyajeet concluded by saying, "I'm realizing all these characters, which are extremely beautiful and hopeful are coming to me. I think that resonates with the spirit of who I am and I feel really lucky that it's happening now."
The actor also revealed his acting process stating, "I'm playing a part right now of a guy who is going to die in six months. He gets to know that he is terminally ill and he has only six months to live. Something happens within me; my body language and my tone change and even the look in the eye's changes."
