Jackie Shroff plays a veteran war correspondent of a leading media house, who finds himself changing tracks from his serious journalism to a sensational one on an eventful cover story assignment, when he has to interview the country’s leading actress at the peak of her film career, played by debutant Anjum Nayar. A concept-driven film, The Interview: Night of 26/11 takes place across an eventful night when a veteran journalist discovers there is more to the leading actress he is interviewing than meets the eye, and as the interview progresses, he finds himself drawn into the actress’ intriguing world. As the Dictaphone keeps recording, the interview derails, the characters collide and tension rises to a feverish level. Is this intimate interview of the actress, almost a confession (which for a different kind of reporter would be a publicity breakthrough), for real, or is she a better actress than he thinks she is? And does the reporter, with his approach, go a bit too far? The confrontation evolves into a passionate duel, with one overriding question: who is going to win?
