The year 2019 was a bustling for Palomi Ghosh with three back to back releases — Typewriter, Mission Over Mars, and Satellite Shankar. But the actor was thrilled over a particular audition call — for Tryst with Destiny. She says, “It was an interesting choice on [makers’] part to cast me for the role of Laxmi. Casting can often put you in boxes, but here they went out of it.”
The SonyLIV anthology is a collection of four distinct short stories that capture the socio-economic inequalities existing in society. Each chapter tells the story of an individual in contemporary India and his/her struggle to accept his fate. The story, featuring Jaideep Ahlawat and Ghosh, revolves around a bribe-taking senior constable Kubera and his paramour Laxmi who have aspirations of owning an apartment in Mumbai. “The core focus of our [narrative] is corruption as seen from the point of view of these two characters. How my relationship with him [evolves] and how my expectations, morals and ideas influence Kubera, [form the crux of the story],” explains Ghosh.
What made the venture a brilliant experience was being guided by director Prashant Nair of Made in Heaven and Umrika fame. It was his global outlook to the story that got her hooked, says Ghosh. “He has been all over the world and has had a mixed set of experiences. That variety and open-mindedness shows in his work. [It felt like] a collaborative and discussion-based work. He has immense respect for actors and trusts them completely. He doesn’t try to micromanage everything.”
