It is no easy task to praise one of Bollywood’s oldest and greatest stars. It shows how much Vidhu has given the industry through his work. In the book, VVC talks to his long-time collaborator and screenwriter Abhijat Joshi about his extraordinary journey. The book gives us an engaging and insightful glimpse into the spirit, method, and madness of one of the finest filmmakers in contemporary Hindi cinema.
Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s life began in Wazir Bagh, a small mohalla in Kashmir. For the past thirty years he has paved a path in Hindi cinema and even made a movie in Hollywood. From someone who once released his student film even though it was incomplete because he ran out of money and film inventory, he now has the distinction of directing one of the most important production houses in India, VVC Films.
The company has made some of the biggest blockbusters lately. In addition to being a filmmaker par excellence, he has nurtured some of the best talent in the Hindi film industry, including directors Rajkumar Hirani, Pradeep Sarkar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
