While the B-town is filled with the frenzy of Biopics and Remakes, legendary actress Waheeda Rehman is not in favour of them. There has been news about biopics being planned on actor-filmmaker Guru Dutt and singer-actor Kishore Kumar. Waheeda feels that this is not such a good idea because it leads to showcasing too much of personal details of an artiste.
"Both Guru Dutt and Kishore Kumar's lives had lots of ups and downs. Their lives were heavy and sad. I feel a biopic might turn out to be tragic. Also, it would be like giving out personal details which I feel is not a good idea," explained the 77-year-old Rehman.
Remakes of old classics in a contemporary style is another trend catching up fast in the B-town. Waheeda is against such remakes as well. "I don't believe in remakes. I think original films are classics and one can't make it or match up to it an original film the same way. And even if they do there will be comparisons. It's not a good idea," she said.
With different kinds of films releasing every week, Bollywood has changed according to times and many of the old stars including Waheeda wish they were born in this generation.
"I definitely think this is the best time to be in the industry. Earlier, films were made on a set pattern but today there are different kinds of films being made and accepted by the audience. I really love the kind of films that are being made today. There is an interesting mix of films and we are getting so many different subjects. I wish I was there in the industry today. I wish I was born in today's time," she expressed.
The legendary actress feels that awards have lost their charm these days. She said, "Awards are distributed for anything and everything. In our times it would be a nail-biting situation as to who would get award. We would always be curious to know whether we would be winner or not. The experience of getting an award has completely dissolved."
