Bhansali: I don’t want to be alone watching my film

With unexpected candour, Sanjay Leela Bhansali declared,”I did not want to be the only person in the theatre watching my own films.”

Bhansali says he is not apologetic nor embarrassed to produce a masala film like Rowdy Rathore which is releasing this week. He says, “After Saawariya, I retreated into a shell. With Guzaarish I went through a catharsis. Though it was a film about something as morbid as euthanasia, it was eventually a celebration of life and happiness. Once I was done with it, I wanted to do something that would appeal to the man on the streets and in the chawls. That is where I grew up loving everything about cinema.”

That is not to say that he is bidding adieu to the kind of cinema he is best known for. “With Ram Leela, the audiences will get to see the Bhansali of Devdas,” he quips. “It will be a blend of the artistic and the commercial.”

Ram Leela starring Kareena Kapoor and Ranveer Singh will go on the floors in August this year.
