The lead of the film, Sanjay Mishra also reacted to Paulo Coelho’s tweet, pointing out that ‘…Kaamyaab’ is a ‘slice of life’
Starring Sanjay Mishra, Deepak Dobriyal and Sarika Singh, ‘Har kisse ke hisse: Kaamyaab’ tells the story of a retired actor who returns for a long-awaited leading role but finds he is utterly unprepared for the new-age filmmaking. The film has been trending among top 10 most watched Netflix features in India for past couple of weeks.
The actor Flavio Migliaccio, who is mentioned by Paulo Coelho in his tweet, was a Brazilian actor, film director and screenwriter who appeared in more than 90 films and television shows between 1958 and 2019. Aged 85, Flavio was found dead by his housekeeper at his farm in Rio Bonito, Rio de Janeiro on May 4th.
According to Military Police of Rio de Janeiro State, he left a suicide note before hanging himself, and underlined that his undermining as an actor by Brazil’s entertainment industry led to the downfall of his mental health up to the point of suicide.
