Tisca Chopra of Taare Zameen Par fame has graduated from actress to producer in her short film Chutney. The 15-minute movie, which also stars Adil Hussain and Rasika Duggal, sees Tisca de-glammed as she plays the housewife Vanita. The plot focuses on how people who seem ordinary can be hiding some chilling secrets and without giving away any spoilers – the ending is a complete shocker. Talking about her washed-out avatar, the actress said, “For me, pretty is boring. I love losing myself in the character. There are many people around us who go unnoticed as there is nothing striking about them. I used to often wonder if some of them had exciting stories to share. Vanita is one such person. She is ugly, cannot speak well, and is married into a family that is higher in status than hers, but what is inside her is amazing. In a way, it’s like the revenge of the geeks.”

And what led to the movie’s unusual name? The Rahasya star explained, “Isn’t spice a necessary aspect of our lives? However, much like Vanita, ‘chutney’ often goes unnoticed. Despite all its spiciness, it is never the centre of attention or attraction in the Indian diet; it is never served alone.”

Chutney has been released under Tisca’s banner The Eastern Way, according to a report in Times Of India. So to speak, this film has been in the making for a long time. Tisca said, “Many years ago, I had performed it as a play and it stayed on in my mind. Recently, I met the director, Jyoti Kapur Das, and we started writing the script. The film has been shot with a feature-like quality.”
