Grading in an interrogation scene can vary greatly from one movie to the next, but they are very frequently filmed with a single light in the room, often pointed toward the interrogatee. Lighting the set correctly while filming will make a huge difference, whatever sort of grading you decide to use.

You're talking about having a window with blinds blocking most of the sunlight? That's done with lighting, not grading! It would take for ever to duplicate that effect in post-production, and it would look very fake.
