'I felt like a prostitute while doing pre-production of MLA'- director Shiv Dube

Shiv Dube has been making ads for products like Hiranandani, Orbit White Chewing Gum, Kiwi shoe polish, Lotus & Mayo Optical, PurePlus ghee with Ameesha Patel etc. He is making his debut in Hindi Film industry with his political thriller M.L.A. – An Inside Intruder.The film is releasing on 25 May 2012 all over India. In conversation.


Q-1 From where did the idea of movie MLA come?
Shiv Dube - There are various problems in our surrounding and for every problem there is a helping hand. In the same way politics is too dirty and corrupted but someone has to make an initiative to at least make 1% change in this segment. So this is what my movie wants to give a message to the common man i.e. Aam Adami has to understand his power and bring change
accordingly.

Q-2 How were your artists short listed or selected?
Shiv Dube- It was really very tough for me and my team. I just wanted the perfect actor to match my character. Then we were a new production house with a first time director in the films. So we had our limitations.

Q-3 What were the difficulties that you faced?
Shiv Dube- Frankly speaking, I felt as if I am a prostitute and I am trying to sell myself to others. When you are new in this industry you have to face this humiliation because everybody questions your credibility and ability. Whenever I approached big stars like Sonu Sood they refused me on my face at once without even listening to my story. Hundreds of irrelevant question were asked to me, but this is what life is. It teaches us lesson every
now and then. That is why I took almost all new actors and new technicians.

Q-4 Why did you select Georgian actor Ana Kanandadze while rest of the artists are Indians?

Shiv Dube- In my story line the main lead’s love interest is a foreigner. This girl passed her screen test with flying colours. Then somehow foreigners do get more attention with Indian audience.

Q- 5   Why did you opt for Mukest Tiwari as MLA?
Shiv Dube- Whenever we talk about the movie China Gate, it’s only Mukesh Tiwari which strikes in your mind. I don’t recall him as a Vasuli bhai from Golmaal but always recall his negative image from China Gate. Then
he is an exceptionally good actor and hungry for good roles. When we met and he heard the narration, he immediately said yes.

Q-6 have you shot the film at real time locations?
Shiv dube- Yes, because it brings in more authenticity in the scenes. My film is based out of small towns and village. so we shot at Vai , Panchgani and Mumbai. Today Vai has become more like film city. While doing rekie, I came across a village named Mandawali where we found small school, a temple, river… everything that my script demanded .To put in simple works it was like a complete readymade set meant for my movie. Earlier we had confirmed for the same village where Swadesh was shot, but once I saw Mandawali, we cancelled that.

Q-7 You had mentioned that you took new cast and crew but for music you have taken all established names. Why?
Shiv Dube – What we had in mind needed established music director. Sandesh Shandilya is an amazing musicians and his music is very fresh. Then he chose the singers and we went along with his selection. And the music has come out tops. One song by Sukhwinder Singh is going to turn into an anthem at people’s rallies. It is radical and provoking
