started writing” says Tanovic who has co-written Tigers’s screenplay with Paterson Writing this screenplay according to the director was a long and painful process as they were working with “true fact and real people” What turned out to be more painful than that was finding a producer “A number of people really wanted to make the film but it kept getting overruled by the higher-ups” says Paterson This put the project in a limbo It revived nearly four years later when Prashita Chaudhary and Guneet Monga of India stepped in as producers in 2012 “Prashita and Guneet took steps to ensure that the

film so I opt for whatever can make my life easier” says the director who is currently in Mumbai for the movie’s post-production work In India Tanovic also found his lead actors for Tigers a human drama that’s treated as a corporate thriller “When I hear of a Bollywood star I think of someone like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who was a co-juror at the Cannes Film festival in 2003 So when Anurag Kashyap told me about Emraan Hashmi I imagined him to be some cute dancer I watched him in Shanghai as a reference and I thought he was not over-the-top” the director recalls He now hopes that people will watch the film because Hashmi is really like one of them in the film For the role of Hashmi’s wife the director met several Indian actresses but Geetanjali Thapa bagged it “Thapa was almost too beautiful for the role There are scenes when she has to stand up to her husband She is petite but fiery” he says Tigers will have two cuts — one completely in Hindi meant for the Indian audience the other has more of English and adopts a docu-drama style in parts Tanovic who was a war reporter before he became a filmmaker is vocal against war “If everyone looked at wars through my eyes the first thing they would do is to let go of every army in the world You can never win a war The other day I was watching the news which showed the Israeli army and Hamas claiming victory in Gaza I thought are these people serious Nearly 2000 people have died Where is the victory in that A good war film is that which speaks against war” says the director who floated a political party called Naa Stranka in 2008 “I have no political aspirations It is a way to express ideas If you are an artist people give you attention but a political party gets more attention Anyway it is like running a marathon — it will take a long time to build public opinion” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Press Trust Of India | Mumbai | Published: September 27

next film Tamil actor Dhanush talks about being pushed into acting as a 16-year-old his father’s struggle and being judged by his appearance Related News Ahead of his next film Tamil actor Dhanush talks about being pushed into acting as a 16-year-old his father’s struggle and being judged by his appearance Question: You made your Hindi film debut with Aanand L Rai’s Raanjhana Your second is with R Balki (Shamitabh) It’s quite an impressive way to start Dhanush: They are the best first two films I could have done After Raanjhana I patiently waited for the right script to come by I read close to 30 scripts but when Balki narrated Shamitabh I knew this is it this is the film for me Question: But you are a reluctant actor You didn’t want to be in the film industry you wanted to be a marine engineer… Dhanush: … Or a chef yes I took up acting upon the insistence of my filmmaker father Kasthuri Raja But I am glad for it sometimes one identifies one’s calling sometimes it singles one out (See Pics: Dhanush and Amitabh Bachchan unveil Shamitabh first look) Ques: How was it growing up in a film family Dhanush: I come from a very humble background My father had to work really hard to become an assistant director For a large part of his youth he worked in a mill and took up odd jobs to make ends meet We lived in a small room and could only afford a meal a day Dad would walk 11km every day to save a rupee of bus fare so we could go to school I’ve seen poverty up close until I was four or five But dad was a writer from a young age Even while working in the mill he would write stories and scripts and sell it to people for Rs 50 or so They would then sell the stories to directors and producers as their own Through one such contact he got a break in the Tamil film industry as an assistant director He must have been in his late 30s then He worked hard for 15 years before making his directorial debut Ques: Did you rebel when your parents asked you to act in a film Dhanush: Of course I was all of 16 I cried threw tantrums fasted Nothing worked I am glad it didn’t as I realise today I cannot do anything else I suffer from stage fright so I blabber on stage and stop midway through my performances I cannot even write a cheque as it makes me nervous Being around people makes me nervous But I’m very comfortable in front of the camera and this I realised many films later Ques: Were you comfortable in front of the camera the first time when you acted in your father’s Thulluvadho Illamai (2002) Dhanush: I didn’t care about the medium so I was confident but I also knew I’d be ripped apart by critics I was The first review had a line that said: “We don’t understand with what guts he came and stood in front of the camera” I read that and started crying as I was very young But my concern wasn’t that my work had been panned I was worried about what my aunt or uncle would say that my cousins would now tease me (laughs) Ques: You won the National Award for Best Actor trophy for Aadukalam in 2011 making you at 27 the youngest male lead to win the title Dhanush: Am sure there will soon be someone who will achieve the feat at 22 or 23 Also at 27 I was at least 25 films old With 14 years of work behind me I sometimes feel old older than I ought to When I hear senior actors discuss their experiences I can relate to them At 27 I’ve seen what they have Ques: Lead actors are judged also for their appearance At 16 were you prepared for the onslaught you got Dhanush: I knew even then that my looks would be criticised I can look into a mirror no But being a director’s son I also knew that only the script matters not looks Whatever is in those pages can create a star out of an actor no matter how he looks Or bring him down too Ques: What gave you the courage to undergo the same journey the second time in Bollywood Dhanush: This time too I knew my looks would be criticised but this time I enjoyed the process of being judged because I expected it Each time I saw a story or review I would smile and think: “Oh I’ve seen this before Oh that’s not new either” I was also older 29 when Raanjhana released (2013) and thus more mature Actor Dhanush who will be seen in “Shamitabh” Tuesday said he is ready to experiment with roles in Bollywood as he has nothing to lose here Ques: But the success of Kolaveri di in a way set the stage for you Dhanush: I cannot deny what the song’s done for me but Raanjhana and my character Kundan did the magic for me Of course Kolaveri di is a phenomenon with no explanation and I can’t get rid of that even today four years later Sometimes I get irritated that the song doesn’t leave me Ques: You’ve largely done romantic roles in Tamil films and your Bollywood debut was a love story too Dhanush: It’s a typical journey for any young actor In Bollywood I took up Raanjhana because I could relate to Kundan I had felt similar love for a girl at that same age as the character I play But my preferred genre is comedy I believe it’s my forte But I’d love to do a negative role there’s so much to do so much to play with A villain can be stylish and his actions don’t have to be explained Heroes are boring in comparison even anti-heroes as there’s always a justification for their bad actions Ques: You are also superstar Rajinikanth’s son-in-law Dhanush: It’s great to be that There is no comparison he is a phenomenon I prefer being called director Aishwarya Dhanush’s husband She and I share our passion for cinema but at home we hardly talk about it Instead we share other interests We travel a lot Aishwarya loves gambling and got me hooked to it too She also loves shopping and I love to carry her bags We’ve been married for almost a decade now and have two boys They both look like me which I love and which they’ll hate once they grow up (laughs) Ques: You started out so young Do you have any regrets about that Dhanush: Well I didn’t complete my education I cannot speak good English And I missed a whole chapter in my life —youth the age between 16 and 25 I haven’t experienced college life It’s the phase that my character in Raanjhana is set in But it isn’t that bad either I have nearly 30 films behind me and a National Award to boot For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Reuters | Updated: July 13 2014 5:42 pm The Dutch winger referred
