I can`t compromise my film to accommodate stars: Rajat Kapoor
Actor-director Rajat Kapoor says he will never rope in Bollywood A-listers in his films at the cost of the script
Rajat, 53, who is behind critically acclaimed films `Raghu Romeo`, `Mixed Doubles`, `Mithya` among others, said his script is always the star of his film.
"I am not a regular filmmaker. I take a lot of time to write a particular script. I make films on issues which we face everyday but tend to ignore it. My films are for common man and any actor can serve the lead. I will never compromise my film in order to take Bollywood stars. I am really not interested," Rajat said.
The versatile actor is again donning the director`s hat with Delhi based drama `Aankhon Dekhi`. The quirky film revolves around the character of Raje Bauji (played by Sanjay Mishra} and the day-to-day experiences he shares with his extended family.
"I have been writing this script for past eight years. The idea of the film is very simple. We know many things in life but we tend to believe those which we have either experienced or seen. I think this idea has crossed many of our minds. It is a funny, philosophical and family film," he said.
Rajat also revealed that he wrote the script keeping Sanjay in mind, whom he met on the sets of 2010 satire film `Phas Gaye Re Obama`.
"When I did `Phas Gaye Re Obama`, I was writing the script of `Aankhon Dekhi`. I and Sanjay shared screen space together in it. He is such a brilliant and effortless actor and I was really moved to see his performance. I decided that time only that Sanjay is my Bauji in the film," he added.
