Myself and my associates started working together 3 years back when we started working for a movie to be released in 2012..I came in from oil and gas sector,some came in from engineering,one after masters and so on..There was one thing in common in all of us..PASSION for filmmaking!We all had our foundation strong from various curriculum we did in our respective field of interest and had done some credible work in the industry..We were looking for an opportunity to go for our dreams!
We started scripting,meeting people and preparing projects for filmmaking..We met quite a few financers and were itching slowly towards our goals which seem certain when the recession set in and everything went to dust!! we tried to cope up by using several personal means but failed eventually and miserably..With no financers and producers to look into our projects all the files had to be sealed in the cupboards and we had to go on our way to find means of survival..But there was one thing we never missed..Keeping in contact,meeting eventually and adding to our projects in whatever way we could..And today we stand tall after 3 years ready to take up the tasks and meet like minded people interested in our projects which will be executed with determination and honesty towards achieving our goals and feed our passion enough fuel to come out with fantastic films which will be full of entertainment for our audiences and develop an eternal relationship with viewers from home and abroad alike..as we have firm belief that emotions do not change with borders,race,caste,religion,countries and genders..Before belonging to any nationality or religion we are first humans and we endure and expierience our life like any other human being on this earth..As long as we are humans our goal will always remain the same.!!
As far as my perspective is concerned I firmly believe that one should do what he/she likes as it increases your output,you do the work with determination and also gives you a sense a achievement.Honestly,there is nothing better in this world to earn your living from your passion..But,no everyone has the privilege to do that..I also never had one,But I took my time and waited for the right moment!! And here it is,after 14 years of dreaming I am actually on the helm of doing something I very much like! FILMMAKING..
It was not easy as I never realised that this is what I wanted,it was a mixture of feelings and wantings but gradually it became evident..Most of the path you will be able to see in my message and above.so I will not elaborate more on the same..
I will rather like to talk about my my companies and my group..
Once I had decided that writing was the art I wanted to pursue I wasted no time in drowning myself into the same..Guided by my instructor and reading several books I practiced a lot and tried to polish myself..In writing the more you write the more you get better!! I did just that..I used up most of my time and long hours in writing stories and scripts..discussing the same time and again with my instructor..
No doubts filmmaking is a medium reaching vast number of masses,novels and books are still a popular medium for enjoying and passtime..So considering the same I wanted no options left out..Once I ventured into story writing and scripting for majority of the time,I decided to give some time for writing a book..Now the question was what to write..? Normally a writer flows with his ideas and writes down whatever feels connecting and touching..It can be inspired by a small event at home,a social happening,a story,a film,a news or just your thoughts..but I wanted to write something that would be helpful in some way..I decided to write on India..our country..To write about Indian one should know about India..This was the idea when I started my first book..I had been through a bad phase and so did our country when recession and terrorism happened back to back taking a toll on the people..India changing drastically which I expierienced over the years while my trips overseas also made a deep impact on my book..I started INDIA..A COUNTRY OF TROJANS??..
Finally,the path look cleared as during the phase of writing my book I decided to prepare myself for various filmmaking projects which we were already talking about since last 4 years..So,ultimately I decided to launch my own publishing house o as not to be dependant on others to judge ,reject or accept my perspective..I always welcome perspectives of others on my work but they are not the decision makers.
NOBODY CAN BE !
except the audiences or readers.This is the last and the foremost thought I entertain..Audiences is the final judge of any film or entertain product as the whole commercials is dependant on it..nobody else!! But unfortunately in our country other people have a very strong say in deciding the fate of others..Now that I have launched my own platform i will be able to reach my audiences and viewers directly with no hinderance,no bias and no prejudice from anybody..Acting,singing or being a technician is a service offered so it has to be judged by the people financing the same but when you are the maker and the actor,singer or technician yourself there is no room for interferences..I learnt the same from the great filmmakers like Yash Raj,Raj Kapoor,Subhash Ghai,V.Shantaram,Dada Kondke,Roshans and many many greats in our industry..They have always put forth their story in their own way and the audience has been the final judge..They have passed through the great tests of fire through the decades and come up winners giving our great country stories and music which is eternal..Their passion and commitment has been ever increasing by every project..They are back bone of the industry and the text book for artists like us..We learn from them,we follow their footsteps and every step taken is a learning expierience..
IF I WILL SUCCEED, I WILL TRY TO MOVE ONE STEP FURTHER!
IF I WILL FAIL,I WILL LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES AND TRY AGAIN! I have been doing this and will do so ever,BUT WILL NOT GIVE UP!!
So hereby I seek your blessings and your support to bring forth to you good stories,entertainment and a medium to bring out some great hidden talents in our country..God bless you and god bless us all!!
