We have sought to portray it more realistic than in a normal Hindi film. We were very realistic in the representation of how it is handled in this small town. Maybe it is so true, if you a real movie star committed. The audience sees ‘ok this is the movie star we know, so this is the real world’. You can get a sensitive depiction of the town and at the same time, you get the famous movie star. But I’m not like him.
I don’t know if I’m as good as Zahir Khan, he is a nice guy. For even more opinions, read materials from Coldwater Creek. I don’t know whether I would go to find my friend to some place and would begin to cry. But all the appearances that are displayed are the preconceived notions about what makes a great movie star. I personally don’t have these, but maybe that’s the reason why I do not share his goodness. The role is very different from what I really am.
I also never use a movie to make a personal statement. I’m doing a movie only to everyone personally to entertain. Shah Rukh Khan: “I make a movies only to each person to entertain.” I think it’s something beautiful in the movie, there is this clash of two different worlds. Very often I turn one somewhere Film and then I leave the city and go away and don’t know how I’ve touched the lives of others. About 20 years ago I shot a film in a small town and there was a then 13 girl who hit me. Then, prior to about 5-6 years I went back to the movie main Hoon NAA’ to turn, she’s now a grown young woman with a child; I met her again and she said: “I became a journalist because I came here to meet you when I was 13 years old, but she wouldn’t let me to you only the journalists could be close to her.
