Good news.   

Am so happy and proud of my writer-director Anusha Rizvi. The film she has made, PEEPLI LIVE, has been selected at the Sundance Film Festival, in the competition section. This is quite an achievement as Sundance is a festival which is extremely selective about which films it accepts. In fact, if I am not mistaken, it is the first Indian feature film to make it to the competition section there.

Incidentally, this is the same film that a section of the media has been erroneously reporting as being about farmer suicides. It’s not about farmer suicides. It has also been reported that the film is called Falling. Both errors.

PEEPLI LIVE, is a satire, a black comedy about rural life in India. Except for Raghuvir Yadav, most of the actors are facing the camera for the first time, so a predominantly new cast, many of them of Adivasi origin from Madhya Pradesh. And what performances! I have been acting for 20 years and there was so much that I learnt from watching them.

I haven’t spoken about the film before as I like to be sure about how the film has turned out before I speak about it. Am rather happy with the way the film has turned out. Am looking forward to see what kind of response it gets at Sundance.

Fingers crossed.

Hi Amir,

I am very inspire with the sentence " Kaabil Bano Kamyabi jhak
maar kar peeche ayegi.

3 Idiots is a very inspirational movie. If this movie could have
come 6 year before I would have gone to diffrenet ways of
success in my life. but today I am just sitting with an small

But Thank you very much for making such a great movie.

best regards,

Congrats to all of you on the selection. And welcome to stunning
Utah. I know of a lot of locals who are quite keen on watching
Peepli (partly because the farmer suicides have made news here
and some also because of your appearance with Mrs. Clinton).
Too bad that Sundance has scheduled a Park City showing of
Gurinder Chadha's 'Its a wonderful afterlife' at about the same
time as Peepli Live's Salt Lake City screening.
Either way, I'm hoping I can get tickets for at least one of
Peepli's showing.
and Happy New Year!
Amit (Salt Lake City)

Prophet Mohammad said the deadliest of all sins is kibr,
My grandpa always said keep your heads above the shoulder and
feet firmly on the groud... I ve been ur fan nearly all my life
but the behaviour change in u post success of 3 idiots is
saddening. The way u adressed Chetan Bhagat in a press conference
was poor in taste.. Lord Krishna said in Bhagvadgita, it is very
easy to become arrogant and consider urself without any flaws
when u face success.
I am a fan and well wisher.. 'Yeh free advice hai leni hai to le
lo nahi to koi baat nahi'

It is an extraordinary honor to be selected for the Sundance
competition. Ever since I read about it,(not the distorted info
about the film but just the news that a film by you made it to
Sundance) I have been wanting to see it.

Is the film going to be released in theatres after the Sundance
festival? How do we get to see it or am I behind times on this

AAmir sir,

I am very hurt listening to ur comments on chetan bhagat
though..u said he is trying to gain publicity!!! I am absolutely
sure that he is not the kind of guy who will seek publicity.
I think ur confusing ur relations with abhijat & the 3idiots
& this is not ur individual opinion!!! AAMIR KHAN is known for
his individual opinions so i advice u to please read the Book &
try to think from an ordinary man's perspective!!!
However big fan i am,of urs...I am upset that u have commented
without reading the book!!!

Abhijat joshi must have worked on teh script for 3 long years
which is totally appreciated..
No one is saying that dont give abhijat the credit...But i feel
that chetan bhagat also deserves more credit (if not equal)
& i think u will agree to it if u read the book yourself without
a biased perspective & just like u will read any other book...
From what i know of chetan bhagat,i don't think that guy will
strive for cheap publicity...
