At the trailer of GGBB – Goopi Gawaiya Bagha Bajaiya, an animation film inspired by Satyajit Ray’s Goopi Gyne Bagha Byne, filmmaker Gulzar was present.
At the trailer launch, when asked if he wants to make films again, Gulzar said,
“I don’t need to get back to films. People like Shilpa Ranade, Meghna Gulzar & Vishal Bharadwaj are making good films. Vishal has made a film for children also. Let me sit back. They are making better films than me cinematically. This generation is much ahead of me. I can’t pace up that fast. But I’m doing my role through books and writing and writing for children. It is continuing with me.”
Well, we really hope he changes his mind and gets back to making films again.
Produced by CFSI (Children’s Film Society India) in association with Karadi Tales, GGBB is directed by Shilpa Ranade and is slated to release on March 1.
