Tum Mile

Tum Mile paintings unveiled at an art exhibition





The paintings were specially created for and used in the film





It would be quite surprising for some to find actors, directors and producers promoting their film in an art gallery – but not when your lead actor plays a role of an artist.

The cast & crew of Tum Mile was present at Sanjay Wadhwa’s Tulika Arts Gallery  for an exhibition which showcased the paintings – created by artist Saillesh Acharekar - which were created and used specially for Tum Mile. In the movie – Emraan plays the role of an artist – these paintings were showcased in the film as part of his work. Tum Mile is scheduled to storm the theatres all across on 13th November, 09.

Mahesh Bhatt, Emraan Hashmi, Soha Ali Khan and director Kunal Deshmukh graced the elite event. Mahesh Bhatt said, “An art exhibition is a very unusual place when it comes to promoting a film – but in case of Tum Mile, these paintings are an integral part of the film. At critical points in the story, these paintings portray what Emraan’s character is feeling. The magic lies in the way Kunal and Saillesh have captured the essence of the character in these paintings…when you see the film, you will see it actually looks like a painting created by Emraan’s character at that point!”

Agrees Emraan Hashmi, “These paintings are not only beautiful, but capture and convey my character’s feelings through out the film. I also need to thank Saillesh for showing me the nuances of an artist's body language – especially his hands – when he’s painting. Little things like this give a lot of depth and authenticity to a character one plays.”

The highlight of the exhibition was a 3-D painting – with ‘Tum Mile’ as a theme - created by Saillesh Acharekar. In a 3-D painting, the image changes when a viewer changes its perspective – for eg when one sees an image from the left, keeps seeing it and moves to the right, the image changes. “Very few artists get a chance wherein their work is showcased on a scale as prestigious and huge as this. The least I could do to thank Kunal for this opportunity is create something special and memorable. I believe this is the first 3-D painting in created around a film theme”, says Saillesh.

The proprietor of Tulika Arts Gallery, Mr. Sanjay Wadhwa said, “It’s a privilege that we can simultaneously associate with a film as prestigious as Tum Mile, and an artist as talented as Saillesh. It’s very encouraging to know that people now are being exposed to art – deemed as niche – through more popular media like films. It just gives a whole new dimension to this industry.”

An excited Soha Ali Khan, who was captured in various moods across many paintings in the exhibition, says, “It’s a pleasure and a privilege to be a part of such beautiful paintings. I would like to thank and congratulate Kunal and Saillesh for so beautifully capturing my mood and expressions. It’s truly a special moment for me – as these paintings are indeed a unique way for remembering.
