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 Anusha’s 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.

ur markeying style impress me very much, u never suggest 2 public
that go & watch my film. u just spread an essence of ur film in
people's mind; look my film is coming; if u wish u can watch dis.
in these days where everyone telling that 'look me, i am
superstar' u represent ur topic in diffn way . keep going on and
have lot of success...... u can also wish me a lot of success,
bcoz i am a 3rd yr engg stdnt and i have a thousand miles to go
before i sleep..

I believe anyone who gets to work with you making movies...may it
be new script writer, actor, director, cinematographer...and so
on, are all very lucky. Your attention to details, makes a huge
difference in those who work with you!! Keep up the good work!
