Hema Malini and Esha

Hema Malini has decided to go all out to restart her daughter Esha’s Bollywood career with Tell Me Oh Khuda. As Esha plays a girl who has to figure out who her real father is, Hema’s film has four veteran cinematographers, who will shoot different episodes of the film’s four lead actors.

The renowned cinematographers on board are Grant Appleton, Hayk Kirakosyan, Carlos Catalan and Burak Turan. While Burak Turan will shoot Rishi Kapoor’s scenes in Turkey, Vinod Khanna’s parts will be shot in Rajasthan.

Director Mayur Puri said, “First, we will shoot Esha’s scenes with Rishi in Turkey, followed by Vinod Khanna’s scenes. Then I will shoot the third and fourth portions. The four cinematographers will shoot the different segments to give each part a distinct look and flavour.”

Isn’t this film’s plot similar to Dil Ashna Hai which Hema Malini had directed in 1991? Puri replied, “My film and Hemaji’s Dil Aashna Hai are based on a quest. I narrated two to three ideas to Hemaji and she loved this one. Maybe she’s fascinated by the quest format.”
