In the book VVC speaks with his longtime collaborator and scriptwriter Abhijat Joshi about his exceptional journey. The book gives us an engaging and illuminating glimpse into the mind, method and madness of one of contemporary Hindi cinema’s best film-makers.
Starting in Wazir Bagh, a small mohalla in Kashmir, Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s life has been well and truly unscripted. Over the last thirty years, he has blazed a trail in Hindi cinema-even going on to direct a film in Hollywood. From someone who once released his student film though it was incomplete, because he ran out of money and film stock, he now has the distinction of heading one of the key production houses in India, VVC Films. The company has made some of the biggest blockbusters in recent times. Not only is he a film-maker par excellence, but he has also nurtured some of the brightest talents in the Hindi film industry, including directors Rajkumar Hirani, Pradeep Sarkar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Vidhu’s book ‘Unscripted’ is out now. It’s already witnessing a lot of love on it’s launch day.
