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.

On friend­ship

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.
