Best stories come out of the real world says writer-director Purva Naresh

Best stories come out of the real world says writer-director Purva NareshMumbai, July 14 (IANS) Director-writer Purva Naresh says her writing has a ring of truth to it because best stories come out of the real world.

“My thoughts have always taken shape from what I see, feel, and interact with around me. I think the arts have always presented the opportunity to discover through various lenses what others sometimes fail to see,” Naresh said.

“All of my writing has a ring of truth to it, and I think that is what makes the plot and characters relatable yet insightful. The best stories are always out there in the real world,” she added.

She has yet again presented a mirror image of a community that often falls prey to prejudice and scrutiny in Zee Theatre’s “Ok Tata Bye Bye”.

The teleplay brings to the spotlight the authenticities of India’s rural sex workers from their perspective, and presents a story of resilience and individuality.

“As with all my stories, this one too is heavily inspired by the real lives of sex workers. I was inspired by the spirited young girls I interacted with and strongly felt that their story needed to be told. But I didn’t want the plot or its characters to preach, instead, convey emotions that are universal and relatable, however far removed their realities may seem from ours,” she said of the teleplay that stars Geetika Tyagi, Jim Sarbh, Prerna Chawla, and Sarika Singh, and is available on Tatasky Theatre.
