Today is filmmaker Anees Bazmee’s birthday. He is not only a director but also a producer of Bollywood movies. He has directed movies of the comic genre like No Entry (2005), Welcome (2007), Singh Is Kinng (2008) and others.
I met him regarding his interview for a print magazine when he was about to release his second directorial venture – Pyar Toh Hona Hi Tha (1998). I had visited his office with a friend from our residential building. This girl, Bharati, who was with me was, initially, thrilled to bits to come with me for the interview.
B ut, unintentionally, one of my questions prompted Anees Bazmee to narrate the story of the movie. Bharati began feeling bored and became restless. Since that was the last question, I told the director that we would watch the movie for the remaining portion of the story and left. The movie turned out to be critically and commercially successful.
