The renowned CEO & Founder of Streetsmart Productions, Lakshmi R Iyer, has recently announced a film, ‘First Second Chance.’ The film will be seen with a stellar cast bringing an immaculate talent to the audience.
Streetsmart Productions is now announcing the poster of the film. The poster illustrates the contrasting role of the actors with an age difference, painting the young actors in black & white to evoke a sense of the past.
The cast includes the popular name Renuka Shahane, who was seen in Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!, Ananth Mahadevan, who has entertained us in Dil Maange More!!!, Devoleena Bhattacharjee known for her role as Gopi Bahu in the TV show Saath Nibhana Saathiya, Saahil Uppal, known for his role as Kunal Singhania in Ek Shringaar-Swabhiman and Nikhil Sangha, known for Neerja and Dear Zindagi.
In the words of the film producer and director, Lakshmi R Iyer, “It was an incredible journey of shooting the film, with Renuka, Ananth, Devoleena and more. They are all talented individuals with a love for filmmaking who gave their all in ‘First Second Chance.’ I am honoured to have them cast in my film. The story amplifies the unbridled energy of love, past and emotions, all packed in a sweet little orb of time. The script is beautiful in itself, and I am sure the audience will find it just as beautiful and tug at the strings of their hearts.”
On the other hand, Renuka Shahane shares, “I agreed to do ‘First Second Chance’ because I loved the script. I appreciate Lakshmi’s energy, enthusiasm, love for the craft and filmmaking. I have always been on the lookout to work with women writers, directors, editors, and cinematographers. It’s a different kind of camaraderie that we share on the set. It’s a comfortable atmosphere to work with Lakshmi. She is incredibly talented, knows what she wants, and has a clear mind about what kind of emotions she needs. She is never in a rush. In the emotional scenes, she’d give a lot of space to the actor to do it their way and take their time with their emotions, never taking anything in the film casually. I love the way my character is portrayed in the film. Everything was worked out at a micro level.”
Ananth Mahadevan shares, “A heartfelt tale of two people reclaiming their past in the evening of their lives will evoke varying emotions of abandonment, resilience, and revival. The film set in an old people’s home caresses the inevitable emotional evening of one’s life but underlines the fact that every dusk needn’t lead to darkness. Lakshmi’s diligence and passion has been the driving force behind this take-home journey of two hearts. ‘First Second chance’ is the chance you just gotta take!!!”
