I don’t pay attention to extra-constitutional bodies: Hansal Mehta

Monday, November 13, 2017

With films like "Shahid" and "Aligarh", Hansal Mehta has faced the wrath of certain sections of people but the filmmaker believes one should not pay attention to those trying to create unrest in the society. Addressing the ongoing "Padmavati" controversy, Mehta says giving importance to the extra-constitutional bodies will empower them and the best way to deal with it is to avoid them.

"This has been happening for years and it keeps happening. Eventually, the law of land will prevail. These are extra-constitutional bodies that thrive on creating unrest and seeking attention to that. The more attention we give them, the more we are empowering them. So I would not like to give them any more attention. I have never been frightened," Mehta says.

The director is currently looking forward to his next project "Bose:Dead/Alive", an upcoming historical period drama web series based on the life of Subhas Chandra Bose. "The story and the entire development is done by Ekta Kapoor (producer) and her team. They took one year to write the script.

Rajkummar Rao was cast first and then I was contacted in January or February this year. I found the script very thrilling. It is not a regular biographical film. The combination of history and mystery, about the theory around disappearance of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, is very fascinating," he says.

The show will star Rajkummar as Bose and will premiere on ALTBalaji on November 20.
