Director Vikramaditya Motwane is a happy, contented, and satisfied
man. His maiden directorial venture has been critically acclaimed
and to add more spark to this happiness, Amitabh Bachchan himself
has blogged for the film.
Motwane reminisces that there was a time when actors refused to
walk down the red carpet for Udaan at Cannes. Now the movie has
broken barriers and is being praised everywhere. Vikramaditya
himself says that the film isn"t about stars or who is cast in it;
it"s about strong performances.
Vikramaditya rubbishes rumors that the movie was actually
inspired from his actual life. He says that Udaan was his
transition from a writer to a director, and it was perhaps a mere
coincidence that people think it"s based on his own life.
The film was written around 7 years back, in the year 2003 and
the debutant director had to struggle for a couple of years before
he could find a producer. However, he says that this struggle sure
was frustrating but it actually helped him to gain a clearer
perspective of the film and he could write with a free mind. In a
way, his creative freedom was completely transparent and wasn"t
barred by anyone.
