Amrita Puri on whether Ranjish Hi Sahi is based on Mahesh Bhatt- Parveen Babi's relationship- EXCLUSIVE
Ranjish Hi Sahi actor Amrita Puri reveals if the series, created by Mahesh Bhatt, is indeed inspired by Mahesh Bhatt Parveen Babi's relationship.
Come 13th of January, and the audience will be able to see Tahir Raj Bhasin in a romantic role for the first time with Ranjish Hi Sahi. In fact, it's will be a love triangle also involving Amrita Puri and Amala Paul. The series, set in the 70s, is created by Mahesh Bhatt and directed by Pushpdeep Bharadwaj. The series explores the relationship and the affair that begins between a married director Shankar (played by Tahir) and a superstar Amna Parvez (played by Amala). Many felt that this is based on Mahesh Bhatt's relationship with Parveen Babi. Now, Amrita Puri has opened up about it.
In an exclusive interview with us, Amrita Puri addressed the question and said, "It's not just one person's story really. Our director Pushpdeep himself has been a struggling director for 15 years before he got this break. This is his debut series. There's a lot of the struggle that he's put in this, his own struggle. So it's not based on one person's life."
But is there no reference to Mahesh Bhatt's life at all? Amrita replied, "Yes, there is. There is some inspiration from Mahesh Saab's life and he is involved in creating it, but it's many people's stories put into one so it's not a biopic. It's not autobiographical. And yeah, it's about the 70s so it will remind you of that time."
Well, the series too mentions that it has been inspired by real-life incidents. Mahesh Bhatt and Parveen Babi's relationship has been explored on-screen several times. It has been said that films like Arth and Woh Lamhe were inspired by Mahesh Bhatt's relationship with Parveen Babi.
