Thanks for the drubbing on my smoking.   

Have stepped out of the mixing room for a bit and was checking my blog. I have to say that my family, especially my kids, are really happy with the kid of bashing I recieved from you all for my smoking. I completely agree that it is the worst thing anyone can do to damage one''''s health. Cough, cough. Point taken and will be acted upon.

Right now I am so over worked that I often dont know whether it is day or night.

On my comments on BLACK, let me start by commenting that I have the highest regard for Mr Bachchan and I am very big fan of his work. Probably one of the biggest. I believe that he along with Mr Dilip Kumar are among my two favourite actors of Indian Cimema. I have no hesitation in saying that I don''t even feature on the same platform as an actor. He is also in my opinion THE biggest star that Indian Cinema has ever seen. However as any member of the audience I too have a right to my opinion. And let me also clarify that my observations were towards the film and the way it was handled not towards any of the actors. I am very aware that the key of every performance is very much determined by the director.

My big exception towards Black is the fact that a child with severe difficulties is shown being illtreated instead of being treated with love, care and understanding. I simply cannot come to terms with that no matter what the writer and director say in defence. I thought I was watching a rip off of Taming Of The Shrew!!! I take great exception to this kind of behaviour towards children being glorified and propagated through a popular mass medium as the way to deal with children with or without difficulties. I, without any hesitation, strongly condemn this kind of cinema no matter who is involved with the film, and that includes me if I ever have in the past, present or future made such an error of judgement. My creative differences with Mr Bansali are unimportant. I believe he has the potential to make a good film and I look forward to seeing his latest film SAWARIA.

In response to some of your questions regarding TZP: It is a film about children, ALL children, and is aimed at parents, children, and potential parents. In fact for everyone who is a child or has been through childhood, which pretty much covers the whole gamut of age groups.

And now I am being called back into the mixing theatre.

I haven''''t forgotten about the scheduled chat and once I''''m done with my work will pick a date and time.

Much love.

Did TZP come out as an inspiration from the illtreatment of the
girl in Black?

So this post is Ridiculously late as I have only just discovered
your wonderful the likelihood of you reading it is
minimal...but hey I needed to post as Black is one of my
I feel that the punishment you write about is very important to
the the film and is needed. It is not about the cruelty but about
the frustration the parents feel not being able to communicate
with the child. The frustration personifies into abuse. I agree
its not the right way to handle the situation but it is the way
most people deal with the situation. The fact that michelle then
grows upto being the most loved child, just emphasises my point.

Ah...... feel all better now. I feell I always have to defend
that film, it means a lot to me. Sorry for the lateness, and I
hope you are able to notice this post at some point.

Hope your alive... God speed.

Assalaamu alaikum,
I agree that smoking is a bad habit although i too smoke, but not
alot. for me it's mainly about relaxing & not craving. i have
stopped for a while but have recently started again. i also would
like to stop because of my son (2yrs old), wouldn't want to set a
bad example for him! his name is Ammaar,i thought of naming him
after you, cos i like the name but i decided otherwise,
insha-allah maybe the next one. I think it is good that you focus
on children in your movies because life now is very different
compared to our parents times or even our times of growing up. we
have to be extra careful nowadays.
let me know how the quitting is going?
regards to the family

As regards smoking, I have one thing to add.

As far as I am concerned, the right reaction or the right
response that a non-smoker can give when a smoker is smoking is
of "clearing the smoke".

Why not show such an incident in one of your forthcoming movies.

It would be good if everyone showed that reaction to a smoker,
perhaps smoking would die out or would reduce quite a bit.
