Music is an integral part of Shefali Bhushan’s directorial debut Jugni and interestingly most of the names involved including the protagonists as well as the director have a strong music connection. So, while Shefali and the film’s leading lady Sugandha Garg are both trained in classical music, another lead character played by yesteryear actress Sadhana Singh too is a prolific singer.
An exception to this musical background is the lead actor, Siddhant Behl. The actor reveals that though he is playing the role of a singer in Jugni, he has no formal or informal training in music. However, he took up the challenge in his stride and tried to grasp the essence of basic ragas and taals during his pre-shoot session with Shefali.
When quizzed on whether he felt like an outsider amongst a music-oriented cast, he quips, “Music is anyways something that you feel from the heart and don’t need to know it technically to be able to enjoy it. I have always loved music which helped me bring life to Mastana’s character without having any formal training.”
