Day 29 – A Walk in the Park

This is when i roll on the floor, laughing my tired ass off. I don’t know why I thought that just because the number of scenes to shoot are few and in the same location, today was going to be easier. But there were so many factors that were impossible to control. People would not move away from the background. Even @munishbhardwaj yelled at them. He never yells. So you know it’s serious. They still didn’t budge though. God! I never do that when I bump into a shoot. I went nuts when I happened to come across The Dark Knight Rises shoot near our apartment in LA. I’m a HUGE Batman and Christopher Nolan fan so i was totally bugging out. But i was still such a good observer. Why can’t other people be more like me? ha! I kid. I kid. But yea, a little consideration goes a long way.

And there were so many background activities happening all the time. You genuinely need 10 eyes to be in this business. I really cannot imagine how Ankur handled all 3 – costume, art and scene – continuities on Mithya. He really is Melvin. But in a great, very impressive way. I do not know how he does what he does. And @mrrajatkapoor is so nice that it unnerves me a little. I’m thrown off by how friendly and not mean him and @meenal_ are. Talent, i’m not even going to talk about.

Anyway my little lovefest is over now. This is the last blog i’m writing for this schedule from my home. I’m shifting to the hotel from tomorrow. It would just be easier. I might be shooting myself in the foot because I’ll be at Melvin’s beck and call 24 hours a day. But I think I’ll get to learn more. Plus, save precious sleeping time. And money!

So bye now. I have to go pack.
