“It’s my first film with mom. Hopefully, we won’t have to to face the camera in a hurry again. In spite of having years of experience playing her daughter, the experience of doing it for the camera just unnerved me,” Soha, 31, told IANS.
Soha and Sharmila will be seen together in London-based Indian filmmaker Sangeeta Datta’s directorial venture “Life Goes On”, which is inspired by the old tale of King Lear and his daughters. Set in London, the film explores the relations between a grief stricken father, played by Girish Karnard, and his three daughters. Soha plays one of the daughters, while Sharmila will be seen as her mother in the movie.
“Normally when it comes to shooting, my mom is usually very hands-on. But this time she just let it be. She did take a keen interest in my clothes makeup, etc. But once we faced the camera, she let the director Sangeeta Dutta do all the directing,” said Soha.
The young actress entered showbiz in 2004 with “Dil Maange More” and has so far featured in 13 films including “Antar Mahal” (2005), “Rang De Basanti” (2006) and “Khoya Khoya Chand” (2007).
Soha says she listened to her mother about clothes. “Because she has a great taste. But it’s so morbid. I’ve become petrified about losing my mother after doing a film on a daughter losing her mom.”
As for love, Soha isn’t naming anyone. But she admits she’s not single.
“I’m seeing someone. It’s still in the early stages. And it’s great fun.”
