|KAMAL HASSAN: I AM BOLLYWOOD'S GUEST |
By Naresh Kumar
Excerpts of our interview with him:
What is 'Mumbai Express' all about?
Why did you title it 'Mumbai Express'?
This is because Avinash's friends call him by this name. He rides on a motorbike in the well of death. He rides very fast. So, he is called 'Mumbai Express'.
Is the movie based on a circus?
Not at all. One has to do something to earn his livelihood. So, Avinash rides a motorbike in the well of death.
What's the story of the movie?
You are a good actor, why then use gimmicks?
Is the movie made in Hindi only?
No, it's being made in Hindi as well as Tamil.
Why didn't you succeed in Bollywood?
Success or failure is insignificant for me. Since films are my life, I shall continue doing them. I have acted in many Bollywood films. I have even produced some.
Why do you go to Bollywood too often?
I believe that Bollywood respects its guests. I have experienced it too. So, I go to Bollywood like a guest, and it gives me respect.
Why did you replace Tabu with Manisha Koirala in this movie?
You are a good actor, writer, director and producer, which one you like the most?
First, I am an actor, then a writer, later a producer and last of all a director. Since films are my life, so anything connected with them interests me.
You have played all types of roles. What would you do now?
I have many things to do. I want to direct movies. Still, there remain many more things to do.
What's your comment on Mumbai?
I like Mumbai. I have shot 'Mumbai Express' in a jhuggi of Santa Cruz in Mumbai. I wish to salute Mumbaikars for their way of life. Mumbai is a city that fulfils one's dream. I have tried to show this in 'Mumbai Express'.
When do you intend to release 'Mumbai Express'?
I began shooting it in November, and have completed it too. We wish to release it very soon, both in Hindi and Tamil.
I am working on a script. I shall direct it. However, I shall talk about it later. First, watch 'Mumbai Express'.
