"Have you ever had a memory of a friend/ lover impact the way you experience your day-to-day life? The experience of having that memory so close that you can feel it like a real person?" Roshini asks and smiles, "That will be the crux of My Story."
So, how did a costume designer with over 15 years of experience in the Southern film industry decide to debut in direction? "For years, I have been reading scripts. I don't just give a set of costumes for the leads, I get involved in creating characters for a film. It's destiny that I am directing this movie." She believes that the characters of Jay and Tara will lure us in as well. "They are very real and you will definitely fall in love with Tara," Roshini affirms.
The film also has a strong technical crew with script-writer Shankar Ramakrishnan, music composer Shaan Rahman. My Story also has several Bollywood technicians as part of the film including Bajirao Mastani fame sound designer Bishwadeep Chatterjee and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara choreographers Bosco and Caesar and Dilwale DOP Dudley. Cannes award-winner Priyank Prem Kumar will handle editing for the movie.
Hollywood actor Roger Narayan (The Man Who Knew Infinity) will also make his debut in Malayalam with this flick. The shoot of My Story will commence in Portugal by last week of October.
