So, who is this Vikramaditya Motwane ? And why and how he made Udaan, the film which got selected for Cannes this year, the mecca of all film fests! The dream debut of any filmmaker, unless you count Pottymakers like Sajid Khan as filmmaker too! And its also not about going there to pose as a mannequin and fake plastic smile all over! Its about that love called cinema! Its about “official” entry! Rest everything else is just frills and thrills or hisssss.

Have been trying to locate Vikramaditya Motwane and the story of making of  Udaan but so far its been bad luck (Though managed to watch the film & loved it). So, here are two tv interviews in which producer Anurag Kashyap and director Vikramaditya Motwane talk about Udaan, Cannes and more. First one is by Anupama Chopra of NDTV. And the second one is by Rajeev Masand of CNN IBN.

PS – Dear Anurag, we know that long long ago you were the one who promised Vikram that nobody else but you are goning to produce Udaan, we also know that you get hyperactive when you start talking about cinema  and we also know that what you talk, makes lot of sense. BUT, let Vikramaditya Motwane speak too. He is the “director”  of the film . We know you well, we wanna know him now! Its a scary feeling that you might be going the VVC way – maine banayee hai….maine…..maine kiya hai….maine likha hai…maine kaha tha….everything where maine is the key word! Hopefully we will be proved wrong but there is no harm in a making a point that’s coming across so strongly in both the interviews. Enjoy!
