‘Best Song’ award According to her awards are a token of respect “More than the trophy it is the love and affection that people shower on me by listening to my songs years after years that touches me For me awards are a token of respect that people are giving me So no matter how many awards I am receiving I always feel emotional” said the melody queen dressed in a beautiful white sari and with her trademark bindi on her forehead During her musical journey of over seven decades in the Hindi film industry the singer lent her voice for many heroines of different generations She says Meena Kumari

songs alive on screen with her skilful acting Sharing an anecdote from Abhimaan — in which she sang memorable and evergreen tracks like Piya bina piya bina Tere mere milan ki yeh raina and Teri bindiya re for Jaya — Mangeshkar said: “Jaya-ji used to sit and observe me when I recorded all those songs Since her presence made me conscious I asked Hrishikesh-ji (Hrishikesh Mukherjee) the reason and he told me it was a part of her process to get a better insight of her character in the film “Later when I saw the film I was quite blown away to see her wearing red bordered white sari red bindi and certain mannerisms like I do unconsciously But I must say she did such a wonderful work She is a very good actress” As a singer Mangeshkar has explored various genres in different languages including the regional film industry However she has a special connection with Bengali music “Though I have sung in 26 langauges after Hindi I sang the maximum number of songs in Bengali for music directors like Salil Chowdhury Satinath Mukherjee and Bappi Lahiri Since Bengali and Marathi language have many similarities I always felt as if it is my own” she said sometimes breaking into chaste Bengali while talking to this scribe who also has roots in Bengal While her musical journey is too well known to the world it is interesting to know that Mangeshkar is not only a food connoisseur but

how he recreated ’60s Britain for The Sense of an Ending Related News You had mentioned that The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes isn’t an easy book for cinematic adaptation How accessible have you made it for viewers You have to watch it and find out When you adapt a novel the book and the movie should be like cousins not siblings There should be a distance between them In the book the story is told through the first person to the readers (by the protagonist Tony Webster played by Oscar-winner Jim Broadbent) and in the movie the story has been told through relationships Nick Payne has done a wonderful job of writing the screenplay and has created several embellishments which were not there in the book For instance the character of Webster’s daughter played by Michelle Dockery is mentioned in the book but she is a much more present character in the movie How careful were you while making these embellishments You have to make thoughtful decisions and be very careful about it Nick was a wonderful person to collaborate with in that regard I would like to think that we made a lot of considered decisions Julian Barnes gave us a lot of licence He told us to go ahead and ‘betray him’ It was very generous of him and he left it to us He came to the sets only a couple of times After he watched the final version of the film he sent me a note saying he loved the film The Sense of an Ending releasing in India on April 7 How eager were you to show the film here It is important to me that people in India watch my movies even if I am making them outside the country I am glad that PVR and Sony Le Plex are bringing it to India It is an adaptation of a book that is much loved Also the movie has some great actors in the cast Watch |The Sense of an Ending Official Trailer You finished shooting Our Souls at Night an adaptation of Kent Haruf’s novel by the same name That’s a movie I am working on now and we are editing it It is difficult to speak about something when you are still in the middle of a project That’s because one is still processing it We are yet to take a lot of decisions — movies are crafted on the editing table How hands-on are you as a director It was a very close collaboration with Nick throughout the making of The Sense of an Ending The way people interact with each other is different in different countries This is not a world I am very familiar with It is a very British story It needed to feel very British My whole being was concentrated on the fact that it should feel very true to the time and place The story could not have unfolded anywhere but the present-day London and the 1960s We were toggling between these two periods Did you study the Britain of the ’60s for the adaptation You have to immerse yourself in the world of the movie you are making I read a lot of books and watched a lot of movies of the ’60s as well as the present day The Sense of an Ending too was very helpful in that regard — the book has a lot of depth When you are reading it your brain too brings a lot of depth to the text But a movie is flat in front of you You have to make your audience engage with it So it is a different kind of challenge Even as my focus was on making the story feel real I was trying to read between the lines in the script You always speak highly of your actors Do you in some ways draw energy from them I don’t know if I do that but it is always a very close collaboration with most of them We had a very close equation with Billy Howle who plays the young Webster Charlotte Rampling was all about finding the truth and going deeper into the character I was keen on discovering something new about the characters — whether it is something about their past or something that can impact the plot Good material talks to you and I want to go on that journey of discovery and not just cover the script How involved was Jim Broadbent as the lead For him everything has to be true and unaffected — that’s how I like it It’s a great performance and he is so natural His character Tony Webster is an unsympathetic one in many ways and Broadbent is so affable He plays the role with great depth The three movies that you’ve worked on so far are about relationships in some ways Aren’t all movies about relationships There are good movies and bad movies but all of them have to be told through relationships unless it is about a person alone on an island Then it is about the relationship with nature I don’t know if I am doing anything special I don’t think so Do you think you are going deeper into relationships peeling off layers I hope so That’s something the audience has to decide It depends on the material I am interested in ordinary people and finding out what’s extraordinary about them This is what is common in all my movies Great material which relates to that interests me Critically acclaimed film Lunchbox starred Irrfan Khan and Nimrat Kaur While shooting for The Lunchbox you had permission issues in Mumbai How different was it shooting in the UK and later in the US for Our Souls… London is a difficult place to shoot in like any big city But we shot Our Souls at Night in a small town in Colorado and we were more in control of elements That aside it is an American film and we have a bigger budget Since there was bigger machinery and scale I did not have to tweak things around just because something went wrong For The Sense of an Ending we had a low budget and we were recreating the 1960s So we ended up shooting those portions during the weekends and the present-day bits during the week That gave me a chance to travel between the two worlds Otherwise the process of filmmaking is the same You had said that ideally you would like to make one film in India and the next outside I am likely to make my next movie in India But I work on one thing at a time So I would probably talk about my next once I am done editing Our Souls You said that being a father made you look at your characters differently Once you are a father it enriches your life I became a father while editing The Lunchbox The way I looked at the film before that and while editing it was different Nimrat Kaur’s character has a daughter I became conscious of handling their relationship and her responsibility towards her daughter very delicately I wrote the last voiceover of the film during the edit It did not exist in the script Censorship has become a big issue for filmmakers in India these days I don’t know what the solution is for this If you want a certain certification you have to make certain cuts Effectively you would still be censoring the movie for a wider audience You will accept an A or A+++ if you don’t make those cuts At the end of the day there is internet and people can watch anything they want We should not spend so much time worrying about it Then what do you think we should worry about There is a general lack of enduring institutions A body like the Sundance Institute has been a great platform for filmmakers That’s something we need in India — something that caters to India’s needs and that of its filmmakers and audiences To create that we need a lot of selfless people to come together We have such a wide disparate audience but no one to curate for them For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Arita Sarkar | Mumbai |
