Vartika Tiwari opened up about Rajesh Tailang-directed short film Trivediji. Written and acted by Vartika, it is a story of a woman stuck in her apartment during the Covid-19 pandemic with a plant for company.
Talking about the film, she says, “The idea came from a Facebook post. I was stuck alone in Mumbai during the lockdown and one day I realised that the only living being with me was a plant. I felt I won’t be able to survive in this pandemic but the plant would live.”
Talking about Rajesh Tailang, she adds, “I have worked with Rajesh sir before at the National School of Drama. But to make a film with only a girl and a plant was a challenge but he is phenomenal in creating such things. He said we were making this film for ourselves. He taught me to give my best without worrying about the final output.”
