Konkona, Ranvir to act in Mira Nair film

Mumbai: Ranvir Shorey and Konkona Sen Sharma may not be one of Bollywood's hottest couples, but their chemistry can't be missed. The two talk about singing a new short film with Mira Nair titled How Can It Be?

The couple is in sync with each other as they both do not like to talk to the media about their personal lives.

"I don't like to talk about my personal life to the media, only about my films," says Konkona.

"I don't talk about my personal life to media," says Ranvir.

The two will be seen together in a short film directed by none other than Mira Nair. Titled How Can It Be? this film will be clubbed together with seven other short films for a portmanteau titled Eight.

"Mira Nair's film is basically about a couple whose marriage is not working out and it's the individual dynamics of that particular family. And how she deals with her husband and she leaving the marriage, the house," explains Konkona.

Meanwhile, Ranvir — who has just been seen in two out-and-out commercial potboilers Singh is Kinng and Ugly Aur Pagli — seems to be completely bowled over by his first encounter with Mira Nair.

"I'm intoxicated to work with Mira Nair. Any actor working with a director like her would want to impress her. She is such an intuitive director," says Ranvir.

Konkona and Ranvir have earlier starred together in films like Traffic Signal, Mixed Doubles, Aaja Nachle and will be see in together in Madhur Bhandarkar's Fashion.

No doubt they seem to be the only couple who can easily translate their off-screen chemistry, to the big screen as well.

"I enjoy working with Ranvir a lot. I have done quite a few films with him. There's Mixed Doubles, Traffic Signal and now Mira Nair's film. So I think both of us are very comfortable with each other and both of us enjoy with each other," says Konkona.

"She is fabulous to work with and is very easy to be with. She is not very intrusive and gives the actor his space. She is disciplined, focused and has great instincts," says Shorey.
