Meeting Mr Dev Anand
Mr Dev Anand is one of the biggest Bollywood stars in history. Did meet him 8/10-2007 in Stockholm at the Sweden India Film Association. His passion for film is like fire and fuel to get the fire burning is stories. I wont say his age but he is born in 1923, and still burning. Did take the photo with my mobile so its not the sharpest, but he was sharper.
Here are some of his answers to our questions:
What’s your main source of inspiration? My self!
What do you think about increased competition in the film industry? The bigger challenge, the bigger quality.
And his one-liners:
I am in love with cinemas, its my soon, my father, my mother.
I don’t do documentaries, I do stories!
All film I made is my best film; otherwise I would not make them.
If I do a film in another country the idea need to be international. If I came here to do a film it needs to be understand in India and the rest of the world.
India is rich, India is poor, India is everything!
About his new book “Romancing with Life” he put it this way: “You will find me talking on every pages of this book.”
Many CEOs can use his statement: “Being a person of the people is success formula!
