Amit Sharma : After Badhai Ho,Ajay Devgan Wants A Real Film From Me



Congratulations are  in order  for  the  director  of  Badhai Ho. His film has won the National  award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment.

 Amit was at  the  National awards ceremony on December 23 before he  flew out of the country with his wife  and son for a  holiday.During his stopover in Amsterdam  we  spoke  about his  feelings  on receiving the National award  and his next project.

“I can’t describe the feeling. To have won a national award so early in my career—Badhai Ho is my second film—is  a dream come  true. And to receive the National award with so many distinguished  filmmaker! But the  best  moment at  the function was when my actress SurekhaSikri  was wheeled  in. She came to the national awards in a wheelchair to receive her award  for Badhai Ho. She is  the most beautiful actress I’ve worked with so  far,” says Amit.

Badhai  Ho has  changed  the course of  Neena  Gupta’s career. 

Amit says he is happy. “She deserves all the work that’s coming her way. The fact that she acknowledges  the hand of Badhai Ho in her current  success means a lot to me.”

Amit Sharma’s  next  film Maidaan , a  bio-pic on the  life of  football player and coach SyedAbdul  Rahim, is  50  percent ready.Often called the founding father  of  Indian football, Rahimwas a champion  player but also a very influential coach.

Says Amit, “We’ve so far shot in Mumbai, Lucknow  and  Kolkata. The remaining film will be shot in Mumbai after I return from my holiday.”

Would  Maidaan be bigger more commercial in keeping with the director’s reputation after BadhaiHo?

Pat comes  the answer, “It will be exactly the way I want to make it, no frills, no compromises. I will make it how I made Badhai Ho with no thought for how it will  finally pan out, just doing what my heart tells me. My leading man Ajay Devgan Sir is with me on this. He wants  Maidaanto be as real as I  want it to be.”
