Sonali Cable marked the debut film of Dum maaro Dum director-producer Rohan Sippy and Nautanki Saala screenwriter Charudutt Acharya. The one thing that makes him comfortable is indeed the reality that he will have 1st seen any of the High – speed broadband wars and it has transformed certain expertise into his first director endeavour.
While discussing this, the filmmaker adds, “If I say Sonali Cable is my story, it won’t be wrong. Seven – eight years ago when I used to write for television, I had to send a story on urgent basis anyhow, when I was done with story and was about to send that time my internet connection failed. This happened during the time when our cell phones did not have internet and it was late at night, no cyber cafes were open. I was worried but that time I remembered an 18 years old girl’s number who used to work for that internet service provider. I had spoken to her earlier but I doubted if she would speak to me that late night. I called her and told her jokingly ‘kal tum sab meri mayyat me aa jaana’, when she heard my dilemma she was quick to come to my rescue. She forwarded me over to a guy who within matter of minutes had my internet functioning. That time I decided I would meet these kids, but that time I didn’t know I would get such nice story from them.”
The filmmaker further added that, “I think through this film everybody will get to know talented middle class youngster’s story. All these youngsters need is proper guidance and a little financial help and they can do many wonders.”
