More about ‘Jigarthanda Double X‘
Karthik had said that his latest movie is an ode to iconic Hollywood actor-filmmaker Clint Eastwood. In a recent interview with The Hindu, the filmmaker said, “When we made the first promo for the first “Jigarthanda”, it featured a poster of Clint Eastwood.
In the new film, the script lends itself very close to the Western tropes, and I have tried to explore it to the maximum.”Explaining that he wanted to bring the story close to Satyajit in some way, Karthik said, “The story of “Jigarthanda Double X” is set in 1975, and at that time, Satyajit Ray was a working legend, and I wanted to incorporate it into the story.
When we introduce the character of a filmmaker as someone who had assisted Ray, the character’s dimensions change drastically — how he behaves, his costumes and so on, it’s also another tribute.”
