Ananth Mahadevan: ‘Aaj Zid’ doesn’t have objectionable content at all!


Director Ananth Mahadevan is in a fix as the Central Board of Film Certification, led by Prasoon Joshi, claims that the song, Aaj Zid from his upcoming movie Aksar 2 is inappropriate for television audiences.

Amused with the Censor Board’s decision, the actor-director says, “Aaj Zid is such a haunting and melodious number and I don’t know where and what the Censor saw in it that has gone into a zone that they feel it’s not suitable for the viewers.”

“When we were working on the track, the reference was taken from a song Tumse Kahu Ek Baat (sung by Mohammad Rafi saab) from the yesteryear film, Dastak featuring Sanjeev Kumar. The late legendary music composer Madan Mohan composed the beautiful track. Shabina Khan has shot the number in Aksar 2 very aesthetically. I think the song Aaj Zid is the benchmark to handle a sensuous moment on screen. There are no vulgar gestures made by actors. There’s nothing wrong in the song at all. The actors who shot for the song are in the zone of anticipation.”

“Abroad they only censor trailers and movies and not songs. I think a song should be seen in the context of the film and not in isolation to derive a different meaning. Aaj Zid is one of the biggest songs on the YouTube and its topping the charts in just a matter of one and a half week. I hope the board members consider their decision again and permit a television release, as it is part of our publicity campaign,” the filmmaker adds.

The much-awaited suspense thriller is quietly whipping up audience frenzy and the anticipation for the film has touched heights rarely witnessed in such early pre release days. It trended thrice back-to-back on Twitter with only a motion poster and a title teaser.

Presented by Siddhivinayak Creations, produced by Narendra Bajaj & Chirag Bajaj and directed by Ananth Mahadevan, the music of Aksar 2 is composed by Mithoon. The film is scheduled to release on 6th October, 2017.

फिल्म शेफ की कैसे तैयारी शुरू हुयी ?

जब हम लोग फिल्म ‘एयरलिफ्ट’ की शूटिंग राजस्थान में कर रहे थे उस समय प्रोड्यूसरविक्रम मल्होत्रा आये और उन्होंने मुझसे पूछा की एक अंग्रेजी फिल्म है ‘शेफ’ आपने देखीहै? मैं उनसे कहा की हाँ मेरी देखी हुयी जबरदस्त फिल्म है .


फिर आगे क्या हुआ ?

उन्होंने मुझसे पूछा की अगर उसके राइट्स वो लें तो क्या मैं बनाऊंगा. मैं हक्का बक्कारह गया. और उनसे थोड़ा टाइम लिया . फिर मैं रितेश और सुरेश (मेरी लेखक टीम) केसाथ बैठकर इसकी कहानी पर काम किया, क्योंकि हमें फ्रेम तो फ्रेम वो वाली फिल्म नहींबनानी थी.


फिल्म की खासियत क्या है ?

हमने सिर्फ रिलेशनशिप ,खाना और जर्नी को मद्देनजर रखा. इस तरह से शेफ की जर्नीशुरू हुयी. काम से प्यार, प्यार से काम में सबकुछ रह गया, यही इस फिल्म का मुद्दा है.एक इंसान जिसने सबसे ऊपर अपने काम को रखा है.


फिल्म की यूएसपी क्या है ?

इस फिल्म के बाद आप जिंदगी के बारे में सोचना शुरू कर देंगे. काम और पर्सनल लाइफके बारे में जरूर सोचेंगे.


सैफ को कैसे लिया गया?

जब विक्रम ने मुझसे पूछा की लीड रोल कौन प्ले कर सकता है ,तो मेरे मुँह से झट से’सैफ अली खान’ का नाम निकला. क्योंकि सैफ का स्टारडम अप्रोच करने लायक हैजिससे डर नहीं लगता. टॉप शेफ का काम करने के लिए वो फिट थे.


शेफ की जिंदगी फिल्म में कैसी है ?

शेफ की जिंदगी में काम के हिसाब से सबकुछ है लेकिन परिवार में वाइफ ने तलाक लेलिया है और बेटा बात नहीं करता. ये सबकुछ एक पिता के तौर पर सैफ जरूर निभासकते थे.



फिल्म की शूटिंग कहाँ कहाँ हुयी ? 

पिक्चर न्यूयॉर्क में शुरू होती है, लेकिन ज्यादातर हिस्से केरल में शूट किया गया है.केरल में इसलिए हमने शूट किया उसके बाद गोवा, अमृतसर और दिल्ली में शूट की.


फ़ूड ट्रक के बारे में बताएं ?

वो ट्रक हमने पूरा बनाया है. डबल डेकर बस है, उसकी छत को निकाल करके लाइवकिचन बनाया. 3 महीने में ट्रक बनकर आयी.


अपकमिंग :

मैं 2 स्क्रिप्ट पर काम कर रहा हूँ , देखिये कौन सा काम आगे स्टार्ट करता हूँ.
