Mad times are here again.   

The madness has begun for me.

Peepli Live promos have broken yesterday announcing the release date of 13th Aug. Now its deadlines and stress time for me.

Before I get swamped by the madness I would like to express a few things. Making an unusual and challenging film like PL is always difficult, but when it turns out the way that the team had imagined, it is truly satisfying.

In PL, Anusha has written a superb script. Layered, funny, poignant, with an amazing array of characters and situations. It is a very difficult script to shoot, and this being Anushaís first film I was understandably nervous to begin with. But she, in her very first film, has dealt with the material with such maturity that it left me stumped. Astonishingly Anusha has never assisted anyone, nor has she been to film school. I think, in her we have a talent to look out for. As a producer I am really happy with what Anusha has made and I am most impressed by her talent. I want to especially mention here the casting of the film and the performances that Anusha has brought out from her cast. Just blew me!

This may sound like I am praising my own film, and I am, but it is more in appreciation as a producer who is very happy with the creative talent of the team. I am doing it publically because I want to publically acknowledge the work that Anusha, ably assisted by her co-director Mehmood, and her team, have done.

Nadal wins. He certainly is a champion! But being a Fedderer fan all I could think of during the glimpses that I caught of the final yesterday, was, what must Fedderer going through watching the final. ☹

Argentina, the team that I was supporting, is out of the world cup. They tried hard but on that day were outplayed by the Germans.

So, now I am supporting the Germans :-}

As promised to Amitji I am on twitter. But I have to say that, as yet, I am more comfortable on my blog. As I am writing this I feel like I am home.

Hi Aamir,

First of, my apology for posting this message which is not specific to ur recent blog post.
I just registered on your blog and thought of sending u a quick note. Actually my daughter Anisha (3 nd a half year old) is absolutely crazy abt u - be it your recent 3-idiots or any other song/movie, she just loves u like anything. She is eagerly waiting once again to watch 3-idiots on TV next week. Although you're one of my and my familie's favorite as well, it's for my daughter that we love u more than ever.
I don't know whether you'll read this entry or will respond but I always wonder if I would ever get my daughter a chance to see u...
In case you ever think even once that u can afford an hour, just let me know on my email id

Lots of love.
Biplab, Anisha and Rup

Hi Aamir,

I hope the controversy about not paying the Peepli Live folk singers for the Mahangayi Dayan song is not true.
Please clarify.
BTW, the trailer for Peepli Live was outstanding. I witnessed a standing ovation for the trailer in Pune :). I hope the movie does not disappoint...ALL THE BEST

Yes you right about the fact that you are praising yur own movie. Trailer looks good. Looks like a movie of different taste. But recently I saw the new Dicaprio movie Inception and quite disapointed. It different but bad taste. I am looking forward to Peepli now.
Btw I am your fand since my childhood. Its great to know that you are a fan of Federer and Argentina. Just asking do you also support Manchester United or Barcelona??
