Mira Nair Has A Fall Undergoes Emergency Surgery

A Suitable  Boy’s  suitably accomplished  director  Mira Nair  is  currently  not feeling as  top-of-the-world  as   the great reviews  for her series should make her feel.

Mira, who is India’s most precious cinematic export  to  the West , is  currently healing after  an emergency  surgery.  Now  how did that happen?  Out for  a walk in  in the park  she tripped  and fell.

When I   touch base with Mira she says, “I had a very painful shoulder surgery after a  fall in the park . I am nursing myself  back to sturdiness  slowly and steadily.”

For Mira  it hasn’t been an easy year. She  lost  two  of her most  favourite actors. First  it was Ugandan child  prodigy  Nikita Pearl Waliga  who played a pivotal  part  in  Mira Nair’s film Queen Of Katwe, she  died of  an incurable  brain tumour  on February  15. Soon after Mira lost one  of her dearest friends Irrfan Khan.

Mira  describes  it as a  ‘double blow’ . As she recovers she  is  “thinking, processing,ruminating,wrting”

Mira who had directed  the critically acclaimed film Queen Of Katwe in 2016 has set aside much of  the  last  for years    to the stage adaptation of Monsoon Wedding. “It was eight  years of my life. It took  us a long time to get here.We didn’t just take Broadway veterans and put them on stage. We dealt with the stage adaptation of Monsoon Wedding organically. We got authentic  talent like Vishal Bhardwaj. We had 21 songs in the stage adaptation.The entire story of Monsoon Wedding on stage  was impelled by music.We had really creative talent of the highest order. “
