One of our favourite books on cinema is My First Movie. Do read it if you haven’t. There is a desi version too – Directors’ Diaries: The Road to Their First Film. We haven’t read it though. If anyone has, do let us know.
Film critic Anupama Chopra has started a new segment on similar lines – My First Film, for her web show, Film Companion. And the first guest is RajKumar Hirani who talks about the making of Munnabhai MBBS. The film was both critically and commercially blockbuster.
