Superhits may come and go, superstars may come and go but there would always be those few filmmakers who shall always be remembered just for their sheer passion for storytelling. Imtiaz Ali, being the favourite. His films are beyond box office numbers, stars and ratings. They may be imperfect and flawed but they have what most films today don’t – soul. He may not be the one breaking records but he surely does touch hearts with his cinema. And here he is, reminiscing those days when he thought of making a film about a boy who wants to end his life and a girl who lives every day like it’s her last – the film that went on to be one of the best romantic comedies of our times, ‘Jab We Met’.
In this video, Imtiaz Ali reveals that one moment that convinced him to make ‘Jab We Met’ and if you’re a fan of his work too, this is one precious insight!
