Ranvir Shorey says that his forthcoming movie Kadvi Hawa, which deals with the issue of climate change, is not an art film.

“It’s not an art film or a documentary on climate change. It is an entertaining film and is engaging. It is not a masala film or comedy, but that does not mean there are no comic moments. It is a wholesome entertainer,” Shorey said.

The Drishyam Films’ project also stars Sanjay Mishra and Tillotama Shome.

“There are two comic actors so, there will be comedy. The backdrop is climate change but the story is about the two characters who are different from each other,” said Shorey.

Asked about working with the two actors known for their perfect comic timing, the film’s director, Nila Madhab Panda, said: “Image is made by the audience. Directors don’t make images. I had thought of them since day one and I got them. They are brilliant actors.”

Giving an insight into her character, Shome said “silence characterises my character”.

“She barely talks, but her presence is felt. What interested me in this film was how a larger problem like climate change put so much pressure on these two men from diverse parts of India, and on this family which I am part of,” she said.

The film will release on November 24 in India.
