A brazenly politically incorrect Vidhu Vinod Chopra on why he knows his CA doesn’t love his latest, but thinks the audience will

Vidhu Vinod Chopra ko gussa kyun aata hai? Gussa zyaada aata hai; ab pehle se kam aata hai, lekin usske aane ka kaaran kya hai, that’s the important thing. When I look at the mediocrity of Indian cinema, when I look at some rubbish being made and people hailing it because it is touching 100 crore, I get angry. I say ki tum logon ka koi dharam imaan hai nahi kya?
But if you talk of that, the obvious answer a filmmaker will give you is ki dhanda hai, paisa toh chahiye… Dhande ka bhi toh dharam imaan hona chahiye na yaar! Humne 3 Idiots mein bahut business kiya, toh dhanda toh achha hua. Ferrari Ki Sawaari bhi aap likh ke le lo, bahut achha dhanda karegi. Lekin dhanda ka usool hona chahiye. Maine Parinda mein dialogue likha thaa, Nana Patekar bolta hai, ‘yeh dhanda hai, Kishan, aur har dhande ka usool hota hai’.
We change lives. So many people are impacted by cinema. With Munna Bhai, with 3 Idiots, with every film we’ve done, we’ve touched lives. That is the job of a filmmaker. And a filmmaker has a social responsibility, and he can’t escape it, just the way you have a social responsibility if you are a journalist, and you can’t escape that — whether or not you print this. We all create realities and impressions.
I have not made the third Munna Bhai because I am not happy with the script. I know More >
