Actors Jackie Shroff and Neena Gupta are reuniting after their 2017 short film 'Khujli'. They have come together for a slice-of-life film, 'Mast Mein Rehne Ka' film. The movie is written and directed by 'Gully Boy' fame Vijay Maurya. The other cast of the movie includes versatile actors like Monika Panwar, Abhishek Chauhan, Rakhi Sawant, and Faisal Malik. 
'Mast Mein Rehne Ka' will premiere on December 8 on Amazon Prime Video. The film has a heartwarming narrative of two distinct generations, who are confronting the adversities of life. It's about chances in love and life, forgiveness, and redemption. 

In an interview with Outlook India, Neena Gupta and Jackie Shroff spoke about the film, working with each other again, their characters and a lot more. 

Neena Gupta said that director Vijay Maurya has made their characters very interesting. She also feels that that if one's co-star is a good person and an actor then one enjoys working and it becomes easy. ''Though I didn't have many scenes with Abhishek and Monica with Jackie I had more scenes. He is a very kind and good human being and a very good actor. He won't admit it because he wants others to praise him (both laughed). What I feel is that if you enjoy while working, the audience will also enjoy watching it. If you get bored or irritated, the audience will feel the same. We had a great time and fun together and I think the audience will have fun watching the film,'' she added. 

When asked what's her takeaway from the film, the 'Badhaai Ho', actress said, ''I just want my film to be a hit and nothing else,'' and Jackie added "How sweet. Such a darling''. 

On his character, Shroff said, ''The character I am playing is in abundance in Mumbai and all over the country. You will find such a character in every household who is a victim of loneliness. The film is about hope and lending a shoulder to someone who doesn't feel alone. I have seen people around me are lonely and I am also lonely but I have found someone in Neena ji and how I try to live my life again from where it is now at the age of 60 or 70. It's a film about hope that says 'don't give up'.''

Neena is also enjoying this phase of her career where she is getting good stuff to do. ''I am getting lots of good work and enjoying myself doing all kinds of characters,'' she shared. 

The actress also revealed a long list of characters that she wants to play. ''I have a long list of what I want to and I want to play lots of characters. I want to do an action film, a comedy again, a romantic film, a musical film. The list is really long,'' she concluded.
