Actor-director Arjun Sarja prefers to let his work do all the talking. He says that when he began writing the script for 'Prema Baraha', he wanted to make a film that not only provided entertainment but also offered some food for thought. Well, that doesn't come as a surprise because most of Arjun's earlier projects have always come with a strong message.

Arjun's latest offering 'Prema Baraha' has his daughter Aishwarya Arjun play the lead opposite Chandan Kumar. Arjun says that he carefully chose the lead actors because he not only wanted them to look good together but also wanted actors who could stand up to a tough challenge. "I believe that films must add value to the viewer's experience. There must be more to my films than just action and romance," says Arjun.

'Prema Baraha' is a beautiful love story with a patriotic slant to it. "I was at the theatre this morning and I was overwhelmed by the reaction of the audience. They were appreciative at every scene. I felt that people could totally relate to the emotions,"
he says.

Talking about Aishwarya's character, Arjun, says "As a director, my job is to extract the versatility in every actor. What matters is the presentation and quality of the content. People will get to see a very bubbly Aishwarya who can also quickly switches emotions from being extremely sad to being humourous."

Actor Chandan Kumar was hand-picked by Arjun because he perfectly fit the characterisation. "The hero must not only be good looking but must be someone who can bring quality into both the physical and emotional aspects of the character. Chandan had both," says Arjun. The director informs that the fights are something to watch out for.

"Chandan underwent special training in a stunt called Parkour for about 15 to 20 days. It involves jumping from one building to another. In fact, this is the opening scene," informs Arjun.

Actor Darshan has made a special appearance in the song and Arjun says that he couldn't thank him enough. "Darshan offered to be a part of the song. He is, in fact, one of the finest gentlemen that I have met so far. He has now become a part of our big family," says Arjun.

A special screening of 'Prema Baraha' was held at a popular multiplex a day before its release and the who's who of Sandawlood were in full attendance.
