his latest film Ki & Ka how Amitabh Bachchan is not his muse and why he wears only black (Source: Express Photo by Amit Chakravarty) Related News I’m in the business of thinking up new ideas so the mind is trained to sift out stuff that has been seen before Filmmaking is labourious and to me the only motivation is a fresh thought I should be able to spend two years on it But the germ of a thought is always a matter of luck and accident I am not a filmmaker who wants to make a film on a real-life incident I feel people have already lived it and the audience has already read about it The idea has to be mine With Shamitabh it was Mr Bachchan’s voice that stood out What do you do with the voice if you take a blank spot for his face You put it on someone else’s face Is Mr Bachchan your muse He has been everyone’s muse in Hindi cinema If you speak any dialogue you first say it out loud in his voice But no he isn’t my muse How did you react when he agreed to do Cheeni Kum (2007) your first film I had written Cheeni Kum with him in mind I told him I would write the script only if he likes it — and he did When I narrated it he responded to it without any expression I realised I was speaking all his dialogues in his voice to him It was most embarrassing so I shut up He is the master of understatement and expresses great emotions with just an ‘okay’ In many ways I am also like that — socially uncomfortable and don’t like to speak much So my perception of him matched how he really is But he can also be over-the-top He was criticised for it in Shamitabh That was the character He was a loud dramatic man — a pompous ass In Shamitabh the key character was his voice He needed to have drama for Dhanush to be subtle Why did you cast Dhanush Initially the role was to be played by Shah Rukh Khan but it didn’t work out I had always liked Dhanush but he was a revelation He is the last face to have that voice What he did with the role amazed me To speak with Mr Bachchan’s voice without copying his expressions or body language is phenomenal He managed it Were you disappointed with the reviews and box-office performance I am disappointed with every film of mine so I don’t bother very much about it But the most cherished reaction came from an usher at a cinema hall He said that people enjoyed the first half of the film but after watching the last 20 minutes they came out of the theatre expressionless because they were robbed of a vocabulary to describe it Shamitabh isn’t a comedy drama or tragedy It’s not boring or intense neither is it a tearjerker It’s a hopeless cause — two people die for nothing The feedback made me realise that people need to have the vocabulary to slot a film If they don’t they will automatically say the film is not nice My takeaway from Shamitabh is that no one will die in my film ever again I’ve told Mr Bachchan my next film with him will be happy and light Your casting always grabs eyeballs — be it in Cheeni Kum or English Vinglish (2012) a film you produced for your wife Gauri Shinde Do you aim to surprise the audience I like to see people who have not been paired before or in a role they haven’t done earlier But the story dictates the cast For Ki & Ka the idea was to steer away from what’s expected of characters where the roles have been reversed Most love stories end in a marriage we thought let’s explore what comes after Then I thought if a man does things we generally associate with women society would call him half a woman And if a woman is the sole breadwinner she will be called half a man So I wanted to cast actors who would by no stretch of imagination be called half a man or woman Arjun (Kapoor) is masculine and when he is gentle it is beautiful If Kareena (Kapoor) is aggressive that makes her no less feminine The beauty of switching roles isn’t about losing your gender and being a “full male” but neither does it stop you from doing things associated with being a woman After the release of the trailer there’s been criticism that the film seems to reinforce stereotypes That’s silly People haven’t seen the film And only after establishing a stereotype can one break it The premise of the film is that most men want to be like their fathers What if one wants to be like his mother especially if the mother was happy being a homemaker The key point is that she deserves as much respect as the breadwinner In the fight to break stereotypes we often forget that people should be allowed to choose what they want to do A few years ago I was at a fairness cream debate and saw the women on the panel going in and out as we waited to shoot I realised they were all touching up their make-up Look at the hypocrisy of it — they want to look good on camera but also want to take away other women’s right to look the way they want to Freedom isn’t just evolved peoples’ right but everyone’s right The film is about the choices these two characters make I am not here to sort out society’s problems with this film So what does filmmaking mean to you It’s the joy of telling a story a hope I believe a film should not be about how life is but how I want it to be — work it within the zone of reality ‘I wish we had fun like this I wish we could love like this or I wish we would cry like this’ My ad filmmaking is the same I’ve never made a film for the customer I don’t believe in research at all Even after all these years I don’t understand my wife or parents how will I understand an unknown customer I presume that most people are normal like me so at least 80 per cent will get what I make How do you juggle your time between feature films and ads I don’t much anymore I used to be hands-on with my day job until a couple of years ago but now I have the perfect team At my workplace currently I am the dispensible one Do you intend to give it up then I’m not sure I’ll be allowed to but I’d love to I like to do things that I want to and give my 100 per cent to them which I am not able to This isn’t to be a full-time feature filmmaker I’ve been disciplined for too long and the rebellious streak in me wants to be indisciplined inside my head Is that what has made you go for an all-black wardrobe in a fashion-obsessed industry Black just makes me look thinner I have 25 black shirts Sometimes I’ll tell Gauri I’m going to change And she retorts: “Yeah What colour” Gauri and you make films based on a simple emotion even if the premise is complex Is that a language developed over time Simplicity is key to me I don’t want to show off to the world how I can also make a film like Gladiator if I am given that kind of money and how equal we are to the Western world I have no interest in that So you would never write a dark film Shamitabh is the darkest I have got I am not good with this dark business I don’t have it in me I had a normal childhood I went to the best schools I was well-fed I’ve never suffered so where will I imagine the darkness fromA lot of people do it to show off in the name of new-age filmmaking They will edit in a certain way like some European cinema The fact is I do that all the time in ads to save time My craft as a director is subservient to the story I tell Then what’s success to you I flip a channel when I spot my work be it an ad film or feature I will start cursing my film the third day after its release regardless of critical and commercial success But it’s important for me that the first two days after the release I shouldn’t be spitting on my own film For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express
