Jyotika on playing a mom in Shaitaan: The film reminds you of how responsible you have to be with a teenage daughter

Jyotika will be seen essaying the role of a mother to Janki Bodiwala in ‘Shaitaan’, which also stars Ajay Devgn and R Madhavan. Talking about playing a mother on screen and being one in real life, Jyotika said, “There are a lot of sequences in the film that ignite motherhood, and I don’t know if I want to really reveal them, but one of them was a very important reason why I said yes to this film also. I think throughout, it was a constant that the film reminded you of how responsible one has to be with a teenage daughter and what role a mother and father play in the protective journey of their kids.”She added, “I think, as a mother, from the beginning to the end, this film has that emotion and responsibility throughout. That feeling of just protecting your child continuously. I think every parent watching the film will be under that light.”

Vikas Bahl: Shaitaan was such a challenging story for me to tell

Helmed by Vikas Bahl, ‘Shaitaan’ is a supernatural thriller. Sharing how he decided to helm the film, Vikas said, “I don’t really watch supernatural thrillers or horror movies, so my knowledge of that genre as a viewer is very little. But when I heard the story of Shaitaan, I totally loved it, and I felt that this story really had to be told. At the same time, it was so challenging for me to tell a story in a genre that I am a novice in. So, I thought, let me take up this challenge and see where it goes. And I must say, it’s been a great experience working on Shaitaan and creating it.”
