Meghna Gulzar: I hope to return to Kashmir for family vacations
Filmmaker Meghna Gulzar He said he would love to be in Kashmir on a family vacation soon. She hopes that it will become a possibility once again, considering that the state has gone through many riots.
Meghna talked about her favorite vacation destinations and how she loves to spend her free time. When it comes to family vacations, we usually go on safari because my son loves the desert. He loves to see tigers and lions in the forest. When it comes to destinations, I love Kashmir. I would love to go to Kashmir with my family and I hope we can do it soon. If I were Santa Claus, people would be more gentle, because somewhere it has eroded a little.
She added: Among the process of making a movie, because there is so much work in shooting and postproduction that I tend to waste time watching movies. Once I'm free, I reach those movies together with my son. Other than that, I am a regular housewife. I order vegetables and do other mundane jobs in the house when help from the house is not available. I am also raising my son.
Meghna loves to express socio-political opinions through her films, past efforts like ' Talvar 'and' Raazi 'have evidenced. Now he is preparing for the release of his next film, the protagonist of Deepika Padukone 'Chhapaak'.
'Chhapaak' is based on the life story of Lakshmi Agarwal, an acid attack survivor. Her past two films, 'Talvar' and 'Raazi', were inspired by real life, too. It is an immense responsibility on a filmmaker who is making a film inspired by real-life incidents, especially if the incident is sensitive and people of that community are alive. But our work becomes timeless when it is remembered beyond the historical record of the time that they were made in. That gives us validation. Even if my film is recalled as one that captured a social transition or a reflection of that time frame, I would feel fulfilled, explained Meghna, daughter of eminent poet-filmmaker Gulzar and actress Rakhee.
Meghna made her directorial debut with ' Filhaal ... 'in 2002, and over the years it has drawn attention' Just Married ', a segment of' Dus Kahaniyaan ',' Talvar ',' Raazi 'and the upcoming' Chhapaak '.
I hope I have evolved as a narrator and tell more complex stories. If I tell these stories with the right complexity, then I am improving my ability. I think I'm faster when it comes to editing, writing and filming a movie than before, he said.
What is the best compliment that Meghna received from her father? Usually, my father is very excited about my movies because it is his little daughter who made the movie! He doesn't give his opinion instantly. But after watching 'Chhapaak', Baba said he was proud of me and that he thinks I am one. of the important filmmakers of my time.
I know that when you use the word 'important', it doesn't mean 'successful' or 'famous'. He meant that my films are relevant, he added.
Launch of 'Chhapaak' on January 10.
