Vivek Agnihotri has been associated with unusual in cinema and television both. His television show Aarohan had dealt with Indian Navy and he had shot it at actual locations, something new for TV medium.
His earlier two films Goal and Chocolate , too were very different in their treatment and subject. His forthcoming film is Hate Story and with the star cast of Nikhil Dwivedi, Paoli Dam and Gulshan Devaiah, it is already creating major ripples in the industry with first look and promo. In conversation with the filmmaker.
How did 'Hate Story' initiate? Vikram Bhatt had written this very bold and gripping script. One day I got a call from him asking to look at this script. The first thing I asked him 'Why me? He felt that the film has become very bold and we need to raise the bar. And for that he wanted a stylish, gutsy and matured director. Erotica is a tricky and delicate genre.
Then I said why am I scared of erotica. I was very clear that I was not interested in making a titillating movie. So I told him that if we have to make this film, we must not hold ourselves in any which way. He said an instant yes and we were on. What was your biggest challenge? Honestly, I had never thought about making an erotica. So, first challenge was to understand the genre.
And make a list of what not to do. My bigger challenge was to find actors who could be so uninhibited that we could make it the way it should be made. It also meant that the actors should be able to stand naked and give such performance that body becomes secondary. I was lucky to find that in super talented Paoli Dam and Gulshan Devaiah. Your movie poster got 22 lakh views within 8 hours. That was overwhelming. In fact the trailer got a Record over lac views in less than 24 hours.
Do you foresee any problem from censor board? If you are scared of censor or moral police I'd advice not to make a film. A scared, calculating mind can never make an honest film. All I can say is that I have never been and never will be scared. Why did you opt for Paoli Dam over an established actresses? I knew that she is a good actor.
But when I met her first I asked her if she would stand naked in front of camera and without blinking her eyes, she said yes. And she was on. Paoli is a gifted actor. She is so talented that every scene with her finds value addition. Also, she is known for her boldness and comes with no inhibition. Normally when you shoot any sex scene we get the crew out of the sets. But in our case we shot all sex scenes with full crew on sets like we would shoot any other scene. Do you think India is ready for real erotica or are we little ahead of time?
We were always ready. We have written Kamasutra. Our mythology, art and music has so much erotica in it. Have you read Kalidasa's Meghdootam or Ritusamhar? Read Ghalib. Its only recently that a scared government and vote-bank politicians have made mockery of freedom that we have started finding indirect and tittilating ways.
Also, I think censor board also helped create such hypocritical ways of coming to the subject of eroticism. Any particular scene that required last minute changes or alterations? Not really except that Nikhil Dwivedi fell and broke his arm and we had to reschedule. What next?
