Producer's Note, Delhi Belly.   
May,08,2011
 


Delhi Belly happened quite by accident... and thanks to Kiran.

Shit happens.

Akshat the writer had been trying to reach me with no success (don't ask me why since I am the easiest guy to reach). Finally, after giving up he dropped off a copy of the script at my house with my maid!!! Not a wise move as she is not the reading type. Well, somehow it managed to make its way to a heap of unread scripts lying in my study.

Shit happens.

One day I was busy with some email and Kiran, while waiting for me to finish, picked up the script lying on top of the pile of unread scripts. Couple of minutes later I heard her giggling, then laughing, then falling off the sofa choking with laughter and rolling on the ground. We were supposed to go out somewhere but she refused to stop reading. We stayed back home and ninety minutes later I was reading it. Three hours later I was calling the LA number written on the first page of the script and asking for Jim Furgele and Akshat Verma. Forty-eight hours later Akshat and Jim were sitting in front of me playing hard ball.

Shit happens.

Abhinay Deo, very ably leading a super cast and crew has delivered pretty much what Kiran and I were laughing our heads off about. I'd like to make a special mention of Ram who has in my opinion created kick ass music and contributed a hell of a lot to the film. With path breaking and inspired work he has created an album which I feel people will want to own. Akshat is a most welcome addition to our industry, and Jim... well, shit happens...

Aamir Khan Productions is known for its inspiring, clean, family entertainment. All that is about to change! Delhi Belly has the potential of, in a single stroke, destroying all the goodwill we have built in the last ten years.

Shit happens!

And if that happens, I will do to Abhinay, Akshat and Jim what Cowboy does to Vlidimir in our film while helping him clear his mind.

And that is when all the shit that has happened so far... will hit the fan!!!

@ aamir sir

first of all

just bought the Music CD of Delhi Belly

ITS FANTASTIC

super funny and completely groovy


ram Sampat is a huge huge talent ..

never got the dues that his talent deserved

but now im sure he will rule in the time to come...

in most movies...only 1 or 2 songs are gud...

but the music of Delhi Belly is simple amazing and the best part is that how easily we can relate to the songs....

congratulations to mr. ram sampat & u..

please get him or cast of DB to post sumthing here if possible

thnk you

Hi Aamir,

I just listened to the entire soundtrack of Delhi Belly and have to say: I hate you (like I love you).... :-)

First of all: Thanks for picking fresh talents (although Ram makes music for several years now) and not relying upon the usual suspects. It's good to hear voices you don't hear in every other movie.

I like all the songs. And I like that the songs can not be pressed into genres (what most of the people like to do). The album is a fun mixture of influences from all over the world and I hope to be able to buy it soon so I can play it in my car on my way to work... It will be a good way to start the day.

So thanks to you for choosing Ram Sampath to do the soundtrack and thanks to Ram Sampath for putting together this very good album with lots of catchy tunes.

Lots of love (and no hate at all)
Kristine

Hello Aamir.†
Just making a quick blog stop to make sure my comment won't disappear in the quicksand of your FB page. Delhi Belly looks like some sort of hybrid of two Travel Channel shows called "When vacations attack" &"Bizarre Foods"! †I'm intrigued!!! Also: †Help! feeling "lost in -lack of- translation"! Who is this DK Bose? Rahul's brother? :-/ OK dear AK Sir. Would love to stay for tea and chat about the future of Indian cinema but work beckons! missing your more frequent posts here! hugs to you and Kiran.
Mira
