Director Subhash Ghai to pen a book?
With movies like Saudagar, Khalnayak, Hero, Pardes and Kalicharan, showman Subhash Ghai ruled the industry in the ’80s and ’90’s.
Recently, when he was asked about to pen an autobiography, it would be inspirational. He says, “My autobiography will be a more of a comic than a tragic affair. I look at people with lots of love and affection. There will be a lot of inspiration for the strugglers.”
Director, Subhash Ghai , 72, says the star system hasn’t changed.
According to him, “When a film flops the directors are blamed. But, when a film becomes a hit, the star takes away all the credit. This trend has been following for ages.”
Meanwhile the director got nostalgic as his film Pardes was screened again at his film institute today.
“It feels like I directed this film yesterday. SRK loved the story and he agreed to do the film. During casting, the producers were keen to cast Madhuri and Salman … the original wish list was SRK, Salman and Madhuri,” he says, adding, “But I put my foot down and said I only want new comers opposite SRK. I convinced them and then went ahead with the film.”
