Embracing The Challenge: Juhi Chaturvedi
The National Film Award-winning storyteller eloquently translates new ideas and thoughts into gripping scripts with lovable characters.
After Piku, it has been a struggle. Bhashkor, Piku and Rana are strong personas and are deeply rooted inside me. It’s not that easy to move on…I did take a break, thinking I will quietly leave them up on mountains and come back but they still haven’t left my surroundings.
Right now I am busy with finishing my next, dealing with all mixed emotions….
My favourite place to write is my worktable. I try to use up the mornings as much as I can…at least a couple of hours, and then I restart late in the evening.
Surrender to that one idea. Allow it to take over all your consciousness…all your instincts. What comes out of you then is your reformed version.
I don’t have a success mantra. I just do what I must, in its absolute form.
I believe that the story chooses you…. So far it’s been a gratifying journey, without my taking any pressure. Going forward also, with open arms I will welcome all the ideas that’ll come looking for me.
Any form of recognition is an honour — be it awards or when the audience notices your work. It’s a positive reaffirmation of your thinking and the impact that it can have.
