Meeting the master

Being a writer and a director and not working for a studio means you constantly have to keep all your balls in the air. And sometimes a ball falls unexpectedly into your hand. Like last night. Amitabh Bachchan is these days in Holland for public interviews. He is the biggest superstar of Hindi film industry. Even if he is over sixty, he still is amazingly popular. One of the reasons, I think, is that he keeps challenging himself. Always trying to find very different characters that make a strong appeal to his profession as an actor.

Yesterday I had the honour to be introduced to him personally. Although it was short, I was prepared. Because I have a big desire to have him for a small but very crucial role in War for a Kiss. I gave him the full package and hope his answer is coming soon.
