Madhur Bhandarkar Invites More Enemies To His Camp
At least, there is one film maker in Bollywood, who has guts to deal with reality. Madhur Bhandarkar is the one who always makes film based on the untraceable realities of glamour world. His next two upcoming movies will invite more enemies to his camp now, as somehow or other the storyline would trap such people.
‘Heroine’ is the upcoming movie from Madhur’s camp and his out-of-ordinary cinematic approach will also be shown in this movie which stars Kareena in the lead role. His other mind blowing movies like ‘fashion’ and ‘Page 3’, showed the ugly face of the glamour world.
He talks about ‘Heroine’ and says, “It is not about Meena Kumari and Madhubala. It is a contemporary film and, like my other slice-of-life offerings, this too reveals the underbelly of the industry and its well-kept secrets.”
He says that he won’t be surprised if the release of such more movies adds some more enemies on his side from the industry.
Madhur says, “If it does, I won’t be surprised. The corporate world vented its spleen on me, fashion and page three folks have still not forgiven me, and the beggars’ mafia went ballistic alleging that I’d eaten into their earnings. Receiving flak for my films has become a given.”
He is even planning to make a movie based on gay-love affair and it won’t be anything based on the lines of ‘Dostana’, but will be rooted strongly to the reality.
He adds, “It’ll definitely be a film on a gay love affair. The subject has me all keyed up.”
He says that films are meant to provide just entertainment to the audiences and nobody can persist long influenced by any movie.
He adds, “Films are meant solely to provide entertainment. There are no lessons to be learnt and inferences to be drawn. Has anyone become dutiful and law abiding after seeing a film that espouses these very virtues? Films can do no more than influence fashion, decor, and hairstyle trends. No reason, then, why the microscopes should come out every time my film releases.”
