We are just about to leave from Ahmedabad after a very warm and loving reception here. Thank you so much folks. Such warmth and love! We are all really overwhelmed! Thank you. Our sincere thanks for such a warm welcome. And we are so happy that you have loved our film so much.
Have been going through your responses post the CB controversy. Some sincere and some insincere. The insincere ones I choose to ignore, but I am very keen to respond to those of you have had very sincere queries, questions and even assumptions. I am very keen to present my side of the story, why I said what, why I feel what I feel, and what is the difference between a book and a screenplay, what I feel about ethics of this issue, fair play, morality etc. The whole gamut. I would also like to present some very interesting evidence.
However I would not like to do this right now.
The reason is, that first of all, I think that it is very important that we distance ourselves from this incident to be unemotional about it, me included. Only then will we be able to examine the merits of the case in an unbiased and clinical manner. I am a very emotional person and find it very difficult to be clinical, so for me distance is most important.
Another reason is that I would not like any more undue publicity for or against anyone. A few responses have expressed that maybe this is a controversy that we have cooked up to get publicity for the film. This stance of mine should satisfy them too.
The facts are before us in any case, and examining them now or after a few weeks should yield the same results.
A few of you have expressed extremely strong negative views about me, some may be insincere, but a few may be sincere too. I would like to give value to that. And hence I will try my best to satisfy you, or alternately, learn from you.
Some of you have expressed doubts about my actions, raised questions. I would like to give value to that. Hence I will try my best to answer all your queries and address all your doubts. I hope to satisfy you, or learn from your questions.
A lot of you have stood by me in full support. I thank you for trusting me. And you can be sure that I will not let you down. xox
In the mean time I have some very shocking news!!!
Donít worry the news is good. But it is shocking nevertheless.
Last year GHAJINI had broken all records and had gone on to become the biggest grosser in the history of Indian Cinema. No film since has even come close to the business. In fact very few films even before GHAJINI are close, just a handful. Examples Gaddar, Hum Aapke Kaun, DDLJ, Raja Hindustani.
Now hold your breath, and take a seat.
3i has already crossed the business of GHAJINI even as you read this post!!!
In less than 10 days 3i has overtaken the ENTIRE business of GHAJINI!!!
India, Overseas, everywhere!!!
And is still going strong...
I have no idea how to describe what is happening. Some suggestions and explanations, PLEASE.
I cannot tell you how happy the entire team is. I am not a numbers person, numbers donít mean anything to me except that they act as a yard stick to tell me how much the film has been seen and loved. We are so thrilled that all the love, effort and passion that we have put into making this film has been received with as much love and passion by all of you.
Fully overwhelmed and totally humbled. Just feel like holding this moment for ever.
