He has made various kinds of cinema — dark comedy, spy thriller, cute romances and complex relationships. His cinematic sensibility is cut from a different cloth, often not tailored for the usual Bollywood design. Yet, he makes the cut with subjects that are spiked with a heady mix of characters. Producer Dinesh Vijan, who has backed films like ‘Being Cyrus’, ‘Finding Fanny’, ‘Love Aaj Kal’, ‘Cocktail’ and ‘Badlapur’, turns director with the upcoming ‘Raabta’, starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon. In a chat with BT, he tells us about his school of cinema, pushing boundaries and how his mistakes made him a better filmmaker. Read on…

Getting Reel with Saif Ali Khan – he talks about his movies

RANGOON (2017)

Vishal Bhardwaj has the talent to create a world of his own, give his characters fascinating quirks and draw you out as a performer. His upcoming film, Rangoon, took me to the jungles of Arunachal Pradesh, into huts where you lived out of a sleeping bag. It gave me a chance to wear the stiff-as-cardboard shirts from my Winchester college days in England and the Trilby hats I usually get to dust out only when Kareena and I are at Gstaad during New Year’s. It also gave me a chance to research cufflinks and ties, inhabit the world of Hollywood’s ’40s heroes like Fred Astaire, Douglas Fairbanks and Errol Flynn, and my grandfather Iftikhar Ali Khan

I loved this journey into the past and my only regret is that I forgot the white gloves lying in my wardrobe which would have looked so good with the black dinner jackets. Rustom Billimoria is an action hero-turned-studio boss. The physicality of the role was a challenge because Rusi’s lost his right hand while doing a stunt and this meant I had to do everything left handed, even a sword fight. That wasn’t too difficult actually since I’ve had some practise playing cricket left-handed.

A couple of days into the first schedule, Vishal who’d asked me to bulk up for the role given the guy’s action background, felt I should cut down a bit. I told him it was too late, besides I’ve seen guys in the gym working out with one hand so it was okay. During our earlier film, Omkara, Vishal was less busy. This time, he had his hands full and I had to prep up more though he still contributed to my performance. And the artistic integrity I found on the sets of Omkara I discovered again only in Rangoon. That, I’d say, is the magic of Vishal Bhardwaj!

Karan & Rhea in ‘Hum Tum’ (2004)

Saif Ali Khan plays the role of Karan a cartoonist by profession and a Romeo by heart. He has a laid back sort of attitude and believes that girls are like buses because if one goes there is no need to worry as another one will come. He first catches a glimpse of Rhea (Rani Mukerji) at an airport and then starts to befriend her on the flight. However things end on a sour note when he kisses her and she retaliates by slapping him. They meet some months later in New York then a few years later at Rhea’s wedding. Now another few years have passed and Karan is in Paris looking for a story for his comic and by chance he meets Rhea on the train.

With time they become the best of friends and Rhea realises that perhaps their relationship is more than friendship. Unfortunately Karan isn’t aware that he is in love until Rhea walks out of his life. After searching for Rhea around the world he loses hope and decides to write a book using his cartoon characters Hum and Tum which does extremely well. As Karan is leaving a press conference he meets Rhea who has read his book. They both express their love for one another and the end of the film they are seen at the hospital happily watching their new born child.
