Kanu didn't let Dibakar use a disc sequence in his film
Ahit song is one of thee best ways to promotee a film and no one knowsws it better than filmmaker
Dibakar Banerjee (right) but he could not convince director Kanu Behl to includeude one in their upcoming project.ect.
The director-producer hasas always included a hit numberber in all his films right from his debut Khosla Ka Ghosla (2006) to this year's Byomkeshesh Bakshy and he thought something like this will makeake his job as a producer easierr in his upcoming film. “I have always put a hit song in everyery film of mine right from Khosla Ka Ghosla. It is difficult to promote a film iff you don’t have a song like this. The funny thing is thatat the film has a very intense disc sequence. I told Kanu ‘Why don’t you put a song there? I'll get some marketing.ng. I was a pakka producer, I wanted a song to market thee movie but Kanu refused,” Dibakar says.
Behl was planning to makeke another film before this butt the director abandoned it. “It was a multi-narrative track with four characters. I couldld not connect to the story except for one track. We didd not know these characters intimately enough to say something interesting. They seemed like typical Bollywood characters which were realistic on the surface. However, I think there is still a fascinating story in one of the tracks," says Dibakar.
Kanu’s film, about a family of car-jackers shows the darker side of Delhi, a city that's been Dibakar’s muse in many films. “That’s the Delhi I grew up in. My memories of Delhi reflect in my stories."
