agency Then I saw Salaam Bombay and I was blown away I realised that one could make that kind of a film too I went to Mira Nair and started working with her Farhan: Yesthe 80s were a dodgy phasewhen there was a lack of young blood The old guard was not willing to relinquish their hold Films had become a family businesslike some incestuous industry Zoya: Completely The formula films were at the fore and I didnt know where I fit in Farhan: But it wasnt all that bad There were some good filmslike Arjunfor example Zoya: I agree but they were rare That didnt mean that I didnt enjoy Betaab or Mr

no denying that there is a good tradition of storytelling in India too Zoya: Who do you mean Farhan: Guru Dutt Hes extremely relevant even today Even Bimal RoyRaj Kapoor and Vijay Anand I think Vijay Anand invented the polish in Hindi films Zoya: That era was truly golden Those guys made films with such adult stories How did people watch grown-up films with no comedy track then Todayits so all over the place Farhan: Why There was Johnny Walker then too He was a part of Guru Dutts films Zoya: But he was a part of the narrative He wasnt added as a filler to get people laughing Which is the most perfect Hindi film for both of you Zoya: Sholay Ramesh Sippy will always be top of the pops for me because of Sholay Farhan: Sholay Really Zoya: You dont think so Farhan: Its thoroughly enjoyable Ive seen it 50 times but I dont know if it was perfect Zoya: Oh come onits not at all dated Thats the power of Sholay Farhan: As a screenplayI think Deewar is a much stronger film If I had a choice to see a film right now between Deewar and SholayId choose Deewar Zoya: Really Sholay moves me more There was so much unsaid in the film Farhan: (laughs) What was unsaid Zoya Jai and Veeru are sitting on each others shoulders and singing Yeh dosti hum nahi todenge What more is left to say Zoya: (laughs) I meanSholay was better directed Farhan: WellI prefer Deewar as a story Zoyado you prefer Farhan as an actordirector or as a writer All three I never had any doubts that he was talented But yeshe has impressed me with his discipline Farhandoes the director in you come to the fore when your sister is directing you Farhan: I dont think its just me Actors always have a take on a scene If I feel something about a sceneI have a discussion with her Zoya: When you decide to work with actors who are good at their jobthen you prepare yourself that they will come with ideas Good actors dont just ask you what they should dothey discuss what they think they can dothey ask the director about the mood that he/she wants to create and then they pitch their performance through it Farhan required the least amount of direction Thats because he has also written the dialogues of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara So he knows the script thoroughly Have you ever disagreed on the way a scene was directed Zoya: Yesthe last scene between Koko (Konkona Sen Sharma) and Farhan in Luck By Chance He wanted to walk out at the end of the scene but I wanted them to stay like that I thought making them stay there in the moment was sadder Zoyawhich is your favourite Farhan Akhtar film: Dil Chahta HaiLakshya or Don I like Dil Chahta Hai and Lakshya more because I worked on them Dil Chahta Hai will always be specialsince it was his first Can you analyse each others strengths as a director Farhan: She has a very strong writing voiceher characters are very well-rounded and shes very clear with her instructions to the crew as well as the actors Zoya: Farhan is very clear with his crew and he edits in his head He shoots what he wantssecure in the knowledge that the scene will turn out exactly as he sees it in his head I dont think like that Most often than notI want to get the mood and the flow of the scene right I cant think that Ill go from a close-up of Katrina to Hrithiks eyes I know the key scenes but on some scenes I like the option of sitting on the edit and figuring it out Farhan sees the film in its entirety in his head to a point where its creepy Who took a chance on whom during Luck By Chance Farhandid you bail out Zoya as a producer and actor Zoya: He took a chance on me as a producer Its the biggest chance he has taken till date Farhan: Zoya lived with Luck By Chance for seven years For six of those yearsI had no intention of acting in it Zoya: ActuallyReema (Kagti) wanted to cast him in Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd She asked me to check him out Then I got to see Anand Surapurs (yet-to-be-released) The Fakir of Venicewhich was the first film Farhan acted in I really liked what I sawso
