‘Multi-task­ing never gives me stress’

Gippy Gre­wal (right) dons many hats — he is an ac­tor, di­rec­tor and pro­ducer. He says he finds it easy to strike a bal­ance be­tween these roles and tak­ing up so many tasks has never given him sleep­less nights. “I don’t get stressed so eas­ily. The only time I worry a lit­tle bit is when I pro­duce a film, be­cause you have to take care of very in­tri­cate de­tails and of course, money is also in­volved. Once you know how that works, you can com­plete your work within time, then no mat­ter what you do, noth­ing can re­ally bother you,” says Gippy, who has acted in films such as Jinhe Mera Dil Luteya (2011) and Bol­ly­wood film Sec­ond Hand Hus­band (2015).

Re­cently, Gippy turned scriptwriter when he wrote his lat­est re­lease, Man­jhe Bistre. He says he had to write the script be­cause it was an idea he wanted to work on for a long time.

“Ear­lier I used to give away my ideas to other writ­ers. I had di­rected Ar­daas in 2016 and it was dur­ing that time I got an idea to write a film on mar­riages. When I told other writ­ers to pre­pare a script, no one liked the idea, so I had to write the script on my own and this es­tab­lished me as a writer as well,” he says.
