Dev Anand talks about the things that attract him in life – women, movies and the wish to achieve more
Vickey Lalwani and Latika Mehta (MUMBAI MIRROR; September 30, 2011)
Chargesheet is a few hours from its release. How do you feel?
I’m in a state of suspense. I’ve made a film with a lot of responsibility. Let the world decide. It is an original film and not a remake. It is a contemporary film against corruption in the police force. I have really worked hard. Ab dekhte hain kya hota hai. Honestly, I never get carried away. If there is no elevator, I still climb the stairs. When I call my colleagues, I have to go through six secretaries. I wonder what happened to them. I know they are busy, but who isn’t?
We hear, you have lot of NRI fans who finance your films. Right?
Yes, they are prepared to put their money, but I have never asked for it.
What if Chargesheeet doesn’t do well?
There are many films of mine that haven’t done well. My setbacks, frustrations, sorrows are very short-lived. That’s my definition of life. We all have our insecurities. Even the Prime Minister in a democracy is insecure, so why not me?
How was it working with Riya Sen in Chargesheet? She is known to throw a lot of tantrums.
Riya needed pampering. I did that. I think the boys too pampered her. See, the thing is, wisdom nahi aati hai young ladkiyon ko. She would come late on the sets. She made her own clothes. Agar main banata toh kuch aur baat hoti.
