Not long after in the wake of finishing Traffic his first element film in Hindi, Rajesh Pillai passed on a sudden and stunning demise at age 41. Manoj Bajpayee still can’t trust Pillai was gone so soon. “I am still in stun and skepticism. I can’t deal with the way that he is gone so all of a sudden. Rajesh was such an enthusiastic movie producer. He offered need to his silver screen over everything else, including his wellbeing. Since we are taking a gander at the arrival of the film I miss him like never before. God favor his spirit.”
The Bengali superstar Prosenjit returns to Hindi films after his much applauded role in Dibakar Bannerjee’s Shanghai.
Says Prosenjit, “It was really sad to see Rajesh Pillai leave us so suddenly. I spoke to him a few months back at the Kerala Film Festival. I accepted the role in Traffic because I really liked the subject. I play a star who turns into a concerned father. Rajesh Pillai directed the Malayalam original and then chose to direct the Hindi version although he was not Hindi-speaking. But he was passionate about the subject and fiercely focused on getting the same tension and emotions from the original Malayalam into Hindi. And such a wonderful human being…He was really sweet to all us actors. We all miss him.”
Divya Dutta who plays the mother of the girl who needs the heart transplant lost the director and her mother at around the same time. “Traffic is a very special film. Rajesh was such a lovely man. He possessed a rare childlike innocence. And he was so engrossed in the making of the film. Wish he was here to see its release……….
