Lust for Life
ASTILL FROM The filmmaker on the support systems that make him tick
On Ranbir There’s a love for film and a bit for food. There’s something similar about our temperament and value system.
It is as significant as family and love. Friends sometimes give us what even lovers can’t, which is a degree of love and understanding without the baggage of too much expectation.
On Karan Johar
He is allowing me to fly as much as I want and is available every time I need creative advice. He is unimposing and deeply encouraging. At Dharma Productions, I feel I will be allowed to make the films that I want to.
On family I feel I am going back to my family. I am realising how constant and wonderful their support has been. It allowed me to do whatever I wanted as I could always fall back on them. I don’t think I value them enough or have given back enough. Now that process is about to start.
