In conversation with Indrani

Bollywood 24/12/2007

Kolkata to me is…

As dynamic now as it was then when I used to come to Kolkata as a kid for my school vacations. Bengali food is what I’d love to sink my teeth into, be it my favourite chingri maachh bhapey or notun gurer shondesh.

Modelling is not…

About being caught doing things they shouldn’t be and then being written about in bold-face. It’s a
complete industry in itself, so why dumb it down?

Cases like Geetanjali Nagpal’s…

Do not a model make. Geetanjali’s story is not the kismet of every model’s, so let’s not glorify the dark side of glamour. Like lab rats, we’re always under the microscope; often times things that we say or do, do get magnified many times over.

Indian fashion is…

Definitely going places. It’s moved from just being on the ramp to going commercial. Fashion is not just for a select few but has gone mainstream.

It’s shed its snobbery and is suddenly accessible. International brands are now looking at India to open stores. But when it comes to infrastructure, we’re far from it. Designers don’t have any industrial space, there aren’t labour laws or copyright laws in place. Yet Indian fashion has managed to raise the bar and I can proudly proclaim that we’ve arrived.

Films are…

Something that I haven’t considered. Many directors have approached me but nothing really has caught my fancy. Films are a lot of hard work actually!
