Continued for here..
From the director's view..
When Sukanya was telling what had actually happened, I didn't know how to react. Should I give her in? Should I protect her? After all I don't know why but she reminded me so much of my late wife. She was pregnant. How can I let the child pay for what his parents had done? It wasn't the child's fault that it had a cheating father and a murderer for a mother..
Me: Sukanya, keep this to yourself. I will handle everything. You will not tell anyone about this. Understand? Not a word. You didn't do anything.
Sukanya: But sir...
Me: No but. Just go.. Go to your van and don't talk to anyone till I tell you to. Ok?
Me: Boys, why he is Stephenji not getting up. Go check. Jaldi karo.
Everyone around rushes to check on Mr. Stephen Kapoor. A zillion thoughts running in my mind. The thing fame does to you. A small time boy from a small village. A true rag to riches story and now meets with a drastic twist.
Police come. Investigations on. Noone find anything. The gun is an unregistered one. I made sure of that. A little money here and a little money there and everything was taken care of. Noone suspected Sukanya. I made sure of that too.
But now, she was pregnant. I met her at a coffee house. The same place where I met her first and had decided to sign her for the movie.
Sukanya: Sir, I'm thinking I will leave the country and go. I can't live here. People will never let me or my child live without a father's name. I feel so helpless.
Me: I think you should stay.
Sukanya: I don't think I can.
Me: Marry me.
Me: I want nothing from you. I expect nothing. Just I can't the child suffer what he didn't do. It just isn't fair.
Me: It is just for the child. Think about it. And let me know. Otherwise, I will get your tickets and visa done.
I get up. Leave some money on the table. Kiss on the forehead and leave.
I walk out of the place with Sukanya left there thinking, " Does this kiss mean anything?"
I didn't re-read this fearing that I would change my mind and not post it.. So sorry for the melodrama.. :P and yes, you may slap me when you meet me for this :P
