Renowned filmmaker Subhash Ghai recalled the difficulties he faced in persuading Simi Garewal to play the role of Kaamini in ‘Karz.’
He told ANI, “I faced the greatest difficulty in signing Simi because she refused to play this role.
He recalled that she said, “Subhash this story is good but I cannot play the role because I would be shown like a vamp.’ Then I had to eat at her place for five nights. I had to do PR to convince her; this is what happened. I told her think over it as that role was very good. She said that no, I would choose some other character. She did not have much work at that time but yet she had her convictions.”
He also shared that he assured Simi Grewal that he would maintain her dignity in the film.
“I made her understand that I would maintain your dignity and told her that she should not worry; I had seen this character differently and even you suit this role,” he added.
Sharing details of how he managed to bring actors on board to play different characters in the 1980 film ‘Karz’, he said, “When I was writing the script of ‘Karz,’ Kamini had an important role in it, who also has dignity. As a director-writer, it’s a lot of hard work to write a character that has dignity and has done murder. She is a negative character, but at the same time, she is ambitious. When we must create a character, we must do a lot of hard work, which is not seen on the screen. Characters are so distinctive. The characters of Tina Munim and Simi Garewal are different. And ‘Karz’ is a music replay of the story; you replay the story through music.”
Notably, Karz was released in 1980. The film was directed by Subhash Ghai and produced by Akhtar Romani.
