Slow ‘n’ steady seems to be di­rec­tor Ra­jku­mar Hi­rani’s mantra when it comes to mak­ing films. And there’s no doubt that it’s a win­ning one! The dap­per di­rec­tor gave the me­dia an in­sight into his cre­ative process when he ar­rived at Magna Lounge, Mumbai, to un­veil the cover of StarWeek, which he had graced. Join­ing him on the dais were Nari Hira, Chair­man, Magna Pub­lish­ing Co Ltd; and Sriv­idya Menon, Ed­i­tor, StarWeek.

The mag­a­zine tagged him as ‘The Most Wanted Film­maker’ which Sriv­idya ex­plained was be­cause when­ever the mag­a­zine asked the stars which di­rec­tor they would like to work with, his was the most re­peated name. When asked how it felt, Raju—as he is pop­u­larly known—said that he was hum­bled and scared.

The me­dia then took over... throw­ing a host of ques­tions at him which he tack­led with a smile. As the event came to a close, em­cee Ru­pali Suri tried her best to whee­dle out some in­for­ma­tion about his lat­est re­lease PK. But Raju was mum and en­cour­aged all present to watch the film.
