Deepti Naval wants to shoot film in Ladakh
Veteran actress Deepti Naval is so enamoured by the beauty of Ladakh that she is planning to direct a film titled ‘Colour of Snow’ with the picturesque place forming a backdrop in the story
“I have a connection with this place and local people know me. I want to direct a movie in Ladakh. The film will be called ‘Colour of Snow’. I have a story in my head,” Naval told reporters on the sidelines of Ladakh International Film Festival here, which began today.
Naval has previously directed yet-to-release ‘Do Paise Ki Dhoop, Chaar Aane Ki Baarish’, starring Manisha Koirala and Rajit Kapur.
The actress is here to present a audio-visual tribute to her ‘Chashmebadoor’ co-star and friend Farooq Sheikh at the festival. Naval worked with Sheikh in classics like ‘Saath Saath’, ‘Chashme Buddoor’ and ‘Katha’.
“The on-screen chemistry that I had with Farooq cannot be recreated. He was a wonderful artiste and a fabulous actor.
Our camaraderie was visible in films. He was an endearing actor,” Naval said remembering Sheikh, who died in December last year.
Naval said she was attending the festival for the first time but has been to Ladakh a few times.
“It is a great venue to screen movies. I am looking forward to watch some great films. I also tried shopping yesterday. I had come earlier for trekking. Now I want to shoot a film here,” she said.
