Landmarc Films’ Medium Spicy directed by Mohit Takalkar and Produced by Vidhi Kasliwal stars Lalit Prabhakar in the leading role. Major amounts of preparation, workshops, etc. were to be done over the last 3 months in Pune. Such is Lalit’s dedication to his craft and his fondness for this script that he set aside an extra month to stay in Pune with Mohit. This was Lalit’s way to stay away from any and all distractions and only concentrate on the new role in his upcoming film.
Despite all the work being sporadically spread out, Prabhakar decided to stay put for almost a month with Mohit Takalkar instead of travelling from Mumbai every now and then only on the required dates.
Said Lalit, “For me a film is a marriage of minds. Considering Mohit and I were going to work together for the first time, it effectively became like a live-in that was imperative to both of us as a process before we took the plunge. Mohit was an extremely good host and a very considerate director. Whenever he was free from his other pre-production work, he’d sit with me to discuss the subtext and underlying meaning of each scene. And since both Mohit and I are foodies, we connected on a whole new level. Food is such a unifying thing and when you get to share every meal of every day with someone, you get to know them even more closely. It was an amazing break for me and a great way to unwind and unlearn to play this new character. The icing on the cake was that I got to spend so much time in Pune, a city I am very fond of and I also got to bond with the entire cast and crew.”
Medium Spicy is touted to be an urban tale of relationships and the film stars Sai Tamhankar and Parna Pethe opposite Lalit. It even has a stellar ensemble that includes Sagar Deshmukh and other great actors that are yet to be revealed.
While Mohit Takalkar is known for his award-winning works in theater, Vidhi Kasliwal is known for producing commercial films with strong content. The coming together of these two surely makes Medium Spicy one of the films to look forward to.
