2014 3:11 am MU’s pro-vice chancellor Naresh Chandra said the mechanism would be implemented at the earliest.” umpire Premdip Chatterjee said. A university must foster an environment that prizes intellectual freedom, Also, and because we are the same cast and are coming to the city for interviews etc. we also do a show for the press and for the audience to come and see and meet us We just tweak it a little change it so that it becomes special So if we go to Gujarat we will add a Gujarati flavour to the event It’s a celebratory film so if we go to Punjab we can add bhangra and try and turn it around and involve people We will do as many city tours as are possible logistically and in a way tell you the spirit of the film which is ki it’s singing it’s dancing it’s being happy and having a good time and that’s what we should do on Diwali Is there a method to the film marketing madness You have to inform people about the film So what information do I want people to get It’s an entertainer with song and dance; it’s happy and mounted in a nice big way If I come into a small room then I am taking away from the spirit of my film If I am doing a press conference or a trailer launch in Wadala like I do I create a whole space which is like a mela that you can come and see and you are like wow Then genuinely without showing off you feel ki trailer aisa hai to picture kaisi hogi The information put out is ‘they are doing a show like this instead of just coming and waving out to us And I think we can afford to because we have a film which is affordable I think a lot of people can afford to but they don’t do it At Red Chillies Entertainment we are very clear that we are going to offer you entertainment up to the level of the film You should have a good evening so that the spirit of the film gets expanded Of course if it was not a film like this it would not be possible The film has to lend itself to it This once you have a distribution arrangement with YashRaj Films instead of a studio. Nobody bought it (laughs) How’s that even possible after a blockbuster like Chennai Express I asked UTV if they wanted to take it after Chennai Express but they were not ready as they had some transfers or whatever happening We decided to finish the film and halfway through its making we felt that if we have the money to complete the film then we should I met Adi one day and I told him I haven’t sold the film so he said “Don’t Give it to me” So it just happened like that I normally don’t sell my films It’s always been that if someone (studio/production house) has got the script as UTV Disney did besides introducing me to Rohit I feel morally obliged and usually end up co-producing it So the partnership has never been monetary because I think I can make a film It weighs heavy on us because we also have the Kolkata Knight Riders and Masha Allah Chennai Express had done well we had some money and had finished 75 per cent of HNY so we decided to make it And YashRaj distributing the film means that all our stress is gone Any particular reason for the long gap between Om Shanti Om your last film with Farah and HNY She had told me about this film before OSO but first there was an issue of casting for the role At that point Amitji was to be cast in the film and he took ill after Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham I think At that time it wasn’t an ensemble film Earlier it was more Lagaanish realistic with this one central character Now it’s become more starry And then we were not fine with the ending of the film But of course if you have decided to do a film you sit on it and try to work it out We sat and spoke about it for 10-15 days and nobody liked the way it was shaping up And then because it was going nowhere what with an unsatisfying ending and the cast that we wanted from the wish list things didn’t move forward Also I was supposed to play a boy who goes away to America and I felt I was too old to play that role Farah at that time had narrated three films to me— OSO was a punarjanam story and it did not need a bigger cast so I said let’s go with that We decided to go with a newcomer (as the heroine) because for Shah Rukh Khan to think of an established actress as a superstar would have been odd It had to be someone completely new and endearing and magical So it worked better that you bring in someone and say woh kissi zamane ki star thi There wasn’t much casting as it wasn’t a spread out cast so we made OSO instead And later I met Farah one day and asked her ‘What happened to that one And she said ‘I have changed it to suit your age As a matter of fact the whole set-up has changed and the ending is very nice’ So I said ok It hasn’t taken that long as such Earlier Hindi films had a very compelling emotional motive for a crime like someone’s mother dying due to poverty or some such so what’s the motive behind the heist in HNY We have a line that Boman says ‘If there is no motive there is no crime’ So everybody in this film has a motive which is based on that grey area that all of them want to achieve something Everyone feels that life has passed one by So maybe the motive for someone is the desire to get rich And then somewhere down the line the motive changes and becomes one single motivation HNY is not a story of six professional thieves who keep doing this regularly They can live their lives as they are losers not using their talent Or they pull off the heist using it It’s not just ki chal aaj chori kar lete hain Tere ko aata hai taala todna Tere ko goliyan chalaani aati hai to chori kar lete hain They have those talents but they needed a motivation They are not bad people just people who have lost out in life due to certain circumstances None of them want to steal actually One man brings them together and motivates them There’s one scene where Boman says “So you are saying that we should become thieves now” So Charlie says that there’s a reason for it It’s a wrong move but it is in the space of Robin Hood rather than being just bad professional thieves Although maybe if this film does well they might become professional thieves Would you agree that we don’t respect failure enough and stars certainly don’t have the failure option open to them I have always said “Failure is not an option” When you wake up in the morning and decide to do something it’s not “ki kar leta hoon hua to hua nahin hua toh nahin hua” You always get up with the purpose ki I will get it done I will finish washing my clothes today I will clean my cupboard properly You won’t say ki I will start with the cupboard dekhta hoon kya hota hai because then you have already given yourself a choice ki let’s not complete this job the way we had thought of it If I have a room I have been wanting to clean I may procrastinate and say that I will do it today or I will do it tonight But if I start with ki shuru kar deta hoon yaar dekhta hoon kya hota hai it will never happen So even for that small thing I would rather approach it ki failure is not an option Start with the thought ki look I am going to do this And maybe that is where businessmen particularly creative businessmen are different A lot of people think they are earning well—I think they are only earning well It is money without imagination I put my money where my dreams are I am into wealth creation and wealth does not mean Rs5 lakh in a bank or Rs50 lakh So as a businessman I am not there to collect money I am there to create wealth and wealth will come when you use your imagination A pure businessman creates value as well as wealth in his own way but for him it is about evaluation about dollar prices…for me it is money utilised to make something creative Whether it is a KKR kind of set-up or it’s a film that I have made has more wealthiness in it more value in it We may come last or lose money but failure is still not an option Because I don’t want to get into a venture of making creative films and then say damn it’s not turning out as I had imagined it to be If my money does not turn out to give me what my imagination believed then I am a failure For IPL in the initial years everyone told me ‘teri team paisa toh kama rahi hai’ But it was not doing what I had imagined It wasn’t my fault it wasn’t the team’s fault it just wasn’t doing it Till they did and we won these two cups and now having made that profit is also nice But profit-making wasn’t the only reason for me to be in it because I was making profits and losing too For a businessman it’s like ‘so what if we’ve come eighth We have made money In Economic Times there was an article that said I am making money but I was like ‘I don’t want to make money’ It maybe good for a businessman but as a creative businessman your imagination needs to be fulfilled and I have a big imagination I want to be perceived like that I want people to like what I am doing I have the actor’s yearning for applause For people to fall in love with my work because I have worked hard on it and I believe in it I think it’s right If I was just an actor I would be happy to go and do my job say “I love you Kkirran” and be very happy with it Now I am a film-maker and Red Chillies is making and promoting films so for me it’s doubly important that nothing that goes out of this office is sub-standard As a creative person there is no pressure I work best under pressure So did I do well And I have to do better than last time is very interesting Do I have to do better than XYZ That doesn’t turn me on Who among various creators of wealth do you admire Among creative entrepreneurs I admire Steve Jobs Ratan Tata—he had the vision to create something like Nano Starbucks Jaguar; perhaps Mukesh Ambani and James Cameron Especially James Cameron for the way he’s used technology to create the kind of cinema he believes in Or even Walt Disney I think what they’ve done requires immense courage of conviction Can technology dictate cinematic narrative Or is it the other way round Technology is a tool that can help film-makers support them in telling the kind of stories they want to tell For instance in Happy New Year we were able to amp up several scenes —action etc because of technology and make it glitzier even though Farah was not well-versed with the technology per se So if the tools are available one can choose from them the ones most appropriate for realising one’s vision Can a star and good business practice co-exist Is a personality dependent business limited by it In the movies business a company has to be driven by a personality Steve Jobs or Walt Disney are crucial to their businesses In Bollywood all leading production houses are driven by stars or personalities whether it is YashRaj or Dharma so I don’t think you can ever separate the two Will the star system ever cease to exist No Movie business cannot exist without a star system as has been evident in countries like Britain [email protected] For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express

monochromatic to 22-year-old pianist Utsav Lal “They somehow acquire a million colours million thoughts where I find expression through trial and error” says Lal in a telephone conversation from New Jersey The 88 keys of the instrument also come with the idea of double infinity — something that has goaded Gurgaon-based Lal to create a variety of permutations and combinations all this while exploring the beauty the little pedals unlock the vibrations that the hammers nail But Lal isn’t your usual pianist bringing Bach Mozart and Beethoven alive at his concerts The young pianist’s expertise lies in keeping allegiance with the Hindustani classical system and creating whimsical world of ragas for his audiences on a piano — an instrument which has rarely had ragas for company The musician combines these with unpredictable harmonies intrinsic to the western classical system to deliver performances with a range of dynamics The same technique and dexterity will resonate on the Seventh Avenue in New York today as the musician takes stage at the prestigious Carnegie Hall for a concert along with vocalist Anurag Harsh The white and gold hall in the past has had performances by some of the most legendary musicians including Judy Garland Pt Ravi Shankar Ut Zakir Hussain and Ut Amjad Ali Khan among others “It’s one of the more exciting opportunities that has come my way The organisers are very particular about the quality of what comes out as an album from the hall so there are a lot of discussions which are constantly going on about how we will be progressing” says Lal about the concert which will be streamed live on carnegieconcertorg In the 124-year-long history of the venue this is the first time that a concert is being streamed live The concert will begin with the sombre and pentatonic Maalkauns and go on to a short composition in another powerful and serious raga Mian Ki Todi followed by the famous Doordarshan tune Des raag Mile sur in Bhairavi will also be a part of the performance The concert will conclude with Vande Matram Pt Ravi Shankar’s famous tune which has been sung for over half a century as the national song But for Lal it hasn’t been an easy road to travel with the piano because of piano itself its construction and its sound The concepts of microtones (shrutis) and meend (glissando) which are imperative to Hindustani system are hard to create on a piano There is also the issue of oral legacy of Hindustani system versus the written music sheets“It would have never been easy But I kept tinkering with the instrument and eventually as I played more I kept coming across ways to include Indian classical elements in some way” says Lal whose style is influenced by his guru and dhrupad maestro Wasifuddin Dagar and his days in Dublin where he studied played a lot of jazz “It is the improvisations of both the systems which are similar My performances take me a step closer to making sense of piano as a Hindustani instrument” says Lal who will present a sequel to the event at New York’s Lincoln Centre on October 24 For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related News I have really enjoyed the experience,
