My film with Shah Rukh Khan is neither The Ring nor Rehnuma: Imtiaz Ali

0 like 0 dislike

Imtiaz Ali’s cinema carries theatrical imprints after all theatre is where the filmmaker’s affair with performing arts began. His last big screen outing, Tamasha, in fact, was an explicit display of his love for theatre and can even be called his own ode to the medium. So, it’s not surprising when the filmmaker, one of the most sought after in the industry, says that he wants to revisit theatre in a full-fledged way.

In an interview to, Imtiaz speaks about the purity attached with the medium, his definite plans to direct plays and yes, just a little bit about his upcoming film with superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

“Theatre is my origin. I have spent so much time there and I feel mentally, I am still there. I never disconnected from the theatre and might have accidentally learnt from it. So, this is a natural place for me to be in,” the director says while sharing his excitement about attending a theatre festival in the city.

The festival, Colors Khidkiyaan, has seen top Bollywood filmmakers and actors lending their support, which is a proof of how the film industry’s approach towards theatre has changed over the years. The reason, Imtiaz believes, is that the stage allows an artist to convey his or her story in a “frills-free” manner as opposed to cinema, which often relies on gimmicks to sell its products.
