'Deepa gives you a lot of freedom'

'Deepa gives you a lot of freedom'

Shriya Saran is full of praise for Deepa Mehta, the director of her upcoming film, ‘Midnight’s Children’, where she dons the role of Parvati the Witch.

The talented actress admits that being part of ‘Midnight’s Children’ gave her an opportunity to learn the spirit of the gifted director.

Shriya says, “As an actor, what I have really learnt from her is to believe in yourself and to go beyond what you think you just can’t achieve. Whenever she comes on the sets, she gives you a beautiful hug. She gives you a lot of freedom as an actor, but also expects a lot of work and knows exactly how to get it from you. She has this great
madness and magic and I just simply love her spirit.”

 ‘Midnight’s Children’ is an epic film from Oscar-nominated director Deepa Mehta, based on the Booker Prize-winning novel by Salman Rushdie. At the stroke of midnight on
August 15, 1947, as India

declares independence from Great Britain, two newborn babies are switched by a nurse in a Bombay hospital. Saleem Sinai, the illegitimate son of a poor woman, and Shiva, the son of a wealthy couple, are fated to live the destiny meant for each other.

Their lives become mysteriously intertwined and are inextricably linked to India’s whirlwind journey of triumphs and disasters.
