Life’s wish – make a film like Monsoon Wedding

I first saw Monsoon Wedding in 2001 in the Piccadilly cinema hall in Sector 34 Chandigarh in 2001. It received a standing ovation by the mostly Punjabi crowd. Over the last 12 years, I’ve watched it once every couple of years – each time mesmerised by the characters, the cinematography, the dialogue and the sheer courage of dealing with a taboo subject in a film like this. If I ever make a film, this is what I would aspire towards.
