At present she is living the moment before she takes off on a Spanish sojourn to show the movie to her crew 70 per cent of them were from Spain and then to Mallorca island But not before answering a few pertinent questions Did the comparison with Dil Chahta Hai bother you I would be worried about what I am making I hope people think of it as a story well told Its better that people have good expectations than no expectations after watching your first film I hope each movie is not like my last >Considering the number of movies made for the youth how challenging was ZNMD You cant say there are so many movies about friendsso whats different Do you ask that to someone who makes love stories One wouldbecause its only those that reinvent the wheel that stand out in memory So as youth films gohow different is ZNMD ObviouslyI will make a movie that has not been made before As you know its a road trip set in Spain with a very eclectic cast It has Reema Kagti and me writing the script and from both our first films it must be pretty evident that we are both not of the norm at some levels As teams gowhat are the standard expectations of an Excel Entertainment film helmed by you I think people expect a new storylinepeople expect it to be well-mountedlike have great production values In shortslick goodlooking films that slightly push the envelope How easy or difficult is it to have a constant writing partner (Reema) Reema is my best friendWe met when we were both assistant directors and have been writing together ever sinceWe have both cowritten this film and the one shes making with Aamir (Khan)We fight a lot but we jell well and since both of us are directing filmswe have to plan ahead I dont think I can work as easily with anyone else as I can with her We have very different strengths but very similar sensibilities We complement each other What are your strengths and weaknesses She is very good with screenplay and shes a very good editorshe gets to the bone of a story Not that I dontbut my strengths lie in character developmentdialogues and drama particularly emotional scenes And in which language do you choose to write I write in English because I am comfortable with it but I dont have a problem with someone else writing my dialogues in Hindi My father wrote it in Luck By Chance I am very comfortable watching Hindi films but I dont express well in Hindi so I wouldnt want to damage my own film by writing in Hindi (laughs) And what of the other creative partnership with Farhan Farhan and I have a great partnershipWe have worked together for years in different capacities and it is wonderful I find him honest and stimulating Hes my touchstone somebody with whom I bounce off all creative ideas As a directorwhat would you say are Farhans strengths as an actor He does not have an agenda that he has to be the number one star He doesnt come from that school He comes from a very deep understanding of characterisation Hes been an actor through school and it is something he wants to do He is physically very mobile and a good dancer who is comfortable in his skin He is also somebody who is flamboyant He has no inhibitions And then theres a sensitivity to people and to life that makes him a very good dramatic actor What are the things that you like or dislike about each others creative functioning I like his writing He likes my charactersthe fact that they are not one-dimensional or caricaturish He always comments on that He doesnt like the fact that I take a long time over editing If I was given three years to edit a filmI would keep editing it I can just keep tweaking it and he goes crazy with it Speaking of whichthere were reports of two editors having bowed out One of the editors had a slipped disc so he couldnt possibly continue and when you are the director there is no question of disagreement someone either understands your sensibility or does not There is room for only one director You either get the directors vision or not Were you following a trend in making your actors sing Theres only one song in the film where they have to lip- sync and half of it is Spanishso I thought it would be attractive if they were singingYou have been with these characters throughout the film and you would buy it more if they sang it themselves I thought it would be charming How was it to bring together actors that belong to very diverse schools (of cinema) It is certainly very interesting They are all good actors and bring something to the table Their collective energy and how they feed off each other is important They all look like they belong in the same world It wouldnt work if they didnt And because they come from different schools its so fresh It has brought in a new energyso I think it completely works Tell us something about your creative rapport with Hrithik I like working with Hrithik because hes a very giving actor to his co-actors He really understands what he wants You can tweak him to a degree and he will get it bang-on He loves his crafthe wants to take the best shot A film about bachelors road trip by a female directorso is the story being told from a male or a female perspective I dont have an option about the female point of view because its the only view I have But I dont approach it like that I dont care a s**t what the male or female point of view is this is my film so it has to be my point of view Even if I was making a film full of women it would be my point of view and not necessarily every womans Considering your family is full of film writersfilmmakers and actorswhose influence is the most profound I am a mash-up of everything My mom and I are huge movie buffs I have the influence of literature from my fatherI have read a lot of books I have heard many stories from him that have influenced my writing The kind of worlds and characters I am interested in comes more from literature than Indian cinema for surebecause we have very uni-dimensional characters My mother and I watched a lot of world cinema and that makes a huge difference It really opens your head up Thanks to herI have had a steady diet of Bollywood films all my life as well as American blockbusters so its a mix of everything Who are the filmmakers you admire There are directors like Martin ScorceseAng Lee or Christopher NolanDavid Fincher or the Cohen brothers whose movies I like watching But generally I will watch anything that is good Any Hindi films that you enjoyed recently I really liked Dhobi Ghat I thought it was special It spoke in a very beautiful manner about things we dont addresslike the class system that exists in our society It really moved me a lot I havent seen any big movies because I was busy with my film Speaking of class systemdo you think it is addressed enough in our movies Its so there and we so ignore it In Barah Anna also they addressed something that people just ignore the issue of domestic help I dont believe that people still use the word servant Its not nice I find it shocking That word went out with the British But class system does exist in India and we may be a part of it but its still disturbing Does Bollywood have a class system the insiders versus outsiders debate Bollywood is good like that Nobody cares about caste or class They dont give a s**t Shah Rukh Khan is not an industry kid You dont become successful because you are an industry kid You might get a shot at it but you wont succeed At the end of the daythe audience is a great leveller Its very democratic Do strictures like not showing smoking scenes in films pose a problem Absolutely If you can sell cigarettes then why cant you show them in films If you feel parents need to be warned that a film shows smokingthen make it U/A If its not illegal for me to smoke then why is it so to show it on screen But its not a censorhip problem Censors follow guidelines they are just the shoulder from which the gun is fired And what would you say of the constant circus of protests and bans against films for using a word or a particular scene Films are soft targets because they get written about The media should not give such parties any press Just refer to them as idiots People do it because they want publicity How would you describe the present scenario in Hindi films The audience taste is changing and that is very exciting People are now open to seeing different kinds of cinema There is more opportunity for smaller films without big stars and I feel that is very exciting I also feel that a palette is developingwhich is a good thing As a creative talent would you be able to customise your script according to data available such as the age-group of the target audiencetheir preferred genre etc? by
