Demonetization (demonetisation) has played an integral role in Anurag Kashyap’s film Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai. The filmmaker says that it helped him relate the story of money and marriage in an effortless way.
The filmmaker said, “Choked: Paisa Bolta Hai was always a great idea and a good script but lacked the ‘X-factor’.” Demonetization worked to tie it together. “
In terms of making the film, Kashyap said, “It was a good process to work on the film. It was a long wait. It started in the year 2015 with a script. At that time, there was no demonetization and when it happened, it had to be included in the script and so we rewrote the script. “
He went on to say, “The implicit sentiment kept working at it. Sayami Kher came in the year 2017 and Roshan Mathew came in 2018. We shot the film in 2019. “
Significantly, in the year 2016, the Government of India decided to discontinue demonetisation (demonetisation) of 500 and 1000 rupee notes in order to take out black money, eliminate fake currency and tackle terrorism funding.
This decision led to long queues in the country’s banks, people were looking for different ways to replace old notes with new ones, and many big events such as weddings began to be disrupted. Something similar Kashyap has tried to show in the story of Sarita Pillai (Sayami) and Sushant Pillai (Roshan).
The film maker said, “The film was always about money and marriage, but only when we were shooting the film, demonetisation happened and it had to be a part of the film. And it was interesting to keep the film in that period, so that it would not be completely absurd and it would look more meaningful. The film suddenly found a good foundation due to demonetization. ”

‘Choked: Money Speaks’ is the story of a middle-class housewife. This is the story on how demonetization changes her life. It also sheds light on how she is helping her unemployed husband.
The filmmaker, known for films such as ‘Black Friday’, ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, ‘Dev D’ and ‘Ugly’, claimed, “What I usually do with this film is to get away from it. Was trying. “
Kashyap said, “My film making process is also changing, because the idea of someone else in the last three films that I did was not me and in fact it is a big help sometimes.”
‘Choked: Money Speaks’ has been released on Netflix.
