Commercial concerns rule film-making these days: Subhash Ghai

Jan 2, 2015 NR

Veteran film-maker Subhash Ghai thinks the guiding principles of film-making have changed drastically over the recent years, and that money alone calls shots now.

He said that his films like "Vidhaata", "Ram Lakhan" or "Karz" were not only entertaining and artistically crafted with catchy music but also conveyed messages.

"They were Indian. Today the commercial concerns and the overall approach to film-making had changed", he said in a media interaction. Greed and a penchant to make quick money are the guiding principles of film-making nowadays, he commented.

He was talking to media persons, as he spent the new year day in Agra visiting the Taj Mahal and meeting his family friends.

Ghai also had some suggestions for the movie industry.

"There is a need to make films on Prem Chand's literary heritage. (Also) acting could be introduced as a course in universities", he suggested.

Ghai's films like "Pardesh" and "Vidhaata" have been extensively shot in Agra and now it is said that the sequel to his 1989-released film "Ram Lakhan" could be shot in Agra.
