Anxiety and film....
The night my editor gave me the final copy of my film " Doosra Kinara", I have been having this continous headach and my stress level is very high. I kept looking reasons for this sudden chnage in my health but could not find one.
And finally it dawned on me that it has to do with my film. Now that it is ready for release, I am anxious about its reception. Even though there is not much money riding on it, I am freaking out about how well it will be recieved. We all worked hard on it. It has a good philosphical, almost nostalgic look at life with a great song from Bhupinder ji. The music is awesome. It was a dream come ture to have Bhupiner Ji sing a song written by me. I have been his fan all my life, and here he was singing my words and emotions....one couldn't ask for a better debut than this.
A friend from Georgia Tech days, who is a well known director and a trail blazer in Bollywood, has asked me to mail him the DVD. I did, and now my anxiety has increased.
Aye Zindagi gale laga le
Hum ne bhi tere har gham ko
Gale se lagaya hai - hai na?
