She appeared in many Indian films and T.V series, and now looking forward to her first international English feature film Islamic Exorcist which is directed by Faisal Saif and distributed by Cinema Epoch. Kavita Radheshyam was also labelled as Kim Kardashian of India by UK’s leading news paper Mirror!
As her first International English horror is about to hit the USA, Canada, UK, she goes in for exclusive one on one interview.
-Do you have those butterfly effects in stomach with the International release of your film?
-Kavita: Yes I do! Because this is my first International English feature film and a film which is very close to my heart. I am excited, happy and nervous at the same time. There is also a small heart palpitations in me.
-And why is that?
-Kavita: Because we Indians have grown up watching Horror Films from Hollywood. Hollywood knows to scare the hell outta you. And than we make an English horror movie to show them. So yes! I am pretty nervous about it and also scared.
-The Trailer of Islamic Exorcist is pretty much a talk in Indie circle.
-Kavita: The Trailer is being really appreciated by most of the people. Everyday I am waking up to a new appreciation and kind words from all the people. Some of the kind people also wrote about it and I am really thankful to them. I love the way they are welcoming the film.
-Did you wanted to be labelled as Kim Kardashian of India?
-Kavita: No! I never wanted to be labelled as anyone. I was very happy. I didn’t even knew it as I was filming for a movie and suddenly I got a call from my director Faisal Saif where he told me that he was reading this article on the Internet where the Mirror journalist surveyed the Kim Kardashian’s all around the world, and I was one of them. I personally thanked the Journalist. But personally speaking, I would want to be remembered as Kavita Radheshyam. Everyone in this world is unique and extra ordinary in their own ways. I also swear that I do not en-cash this label. I am happy en-cashing myself.
-Let’s talk little more about Islamic Exorcist.
-Kavita: This one is something which I am extremely proud of. The movie is directed by my lovely friend Faisal Saif. It’s an International English Horror film which is based on Islamic Voodooism and Black Magic.So, Islam is not only about Bombs and Wars, it’s also about Scary Jinns. (Laughs) Faisal sent this script to Cinema Epoch and they liked the script. We all were so excited to know that a renowned distribution label which is headed by lovely Film maker Gregory Hatanaka likes our work and has agreed to back the movie. Now that the film is completed and ready to be released, we are all looking forward to it.
-And why you wanted to call a movie Islamic Exorcist?
-Kavita: Because the film talks about Islamic Community! There are two controversial sectors in the community. Shia Muslim and Sunni Muslim! Most of the people believe Shia Muslim to be the kings of Voodooism and Black magic, the movie also lights that issue as well.
-So what is Black Magic and Voodoo in Islam?
-Kavita: You dig the grave, get the dead body out and write the Holy Quran versus on that dead body at night in the graveyard. Have you seen this earlier? (Proudly smiles).
-Are you also looking forward to expand yourself as an actor in Hollywood?
-Kavita: Who doesn’t? We all do! Hollywood is ‘God’. If I get another opportunity, I will not see the budget or anything and will pack my bags to fly down and do that film.
-Any message for your Fans?
-Kavita: Live Bold, Die Bold! Keep spreading love. Only Love will conquer.. Nothing else!
