Priyadarshan’s One Abiding Regret Is No Film With Mr Bachchan

In his  40-year career Priyadarshan  has   one abiding regret.

“I’ve never been  able to collaborate  with writer  M T Vasudevan Nair.  And I’ve never been able to work with  Mr Bachchan.Many times we’ve come really close  to working together. But somehow  the projects never materialized. For  one reason  or  another,the projects that we  were  meant  to do together fell  through,” says Priyan regretfully.

The  prolific  director reveals  he wants to do a Hindi remake  of  one of his recent Malayalam  hits. “Yes, I  want  to  remake my 2016  hit Oppam my  film with Mohanlal. I could  only think  of Mr Bachchan as  the blind  protagonist. But  he had already done something similar  in the past. I am still searching  for that one script that will bring us together.”

Priyan says he always looks towards  Mr Bachchan  for inspiration. “After  more than  40 years of filmmaking I  sometimes feel it is time  to hang  my boots.  Then  I see  Mr Bachchan who at  76, continues  to work  for 18 hours every day in spite  of doctors’ orders.And my batteries are recharged.”
