Madhur Bhandarkar: Kareena has shorter attention span

By Glamsham Editorial

Filmmaker Madhur Bhandakar in a candid chat on Siddharth Kannan's show 'Oye Talkies' at Oye! FM Sabse filmi revealed that Kareena Kapoor has the shortest attention span. Giving insight into Kareena's personalities he said that, at times you will realize that she is not listening to you, she is always on the phone, she is very good at multi - tasking, her mind has 3-4 tracks and the best part is her ability to deliver every time.

Madhur talked about his struggle when he used to sell chewing gums at the traffic signals and college campuses with schemes like 'buy one chewing gum, get one free' and he used to get hardly Rs 50 per day at that time. Later on he became a video library owner. Madhur used to deliver maximum videos to Mithun Chakraborty who was told years later that the director of CHANDNI BAR was the skinny lad who used to come to his house for videos, this came as a big surprise to Mithun Da.

Siddharth Kannan told Madhur that he is aware that Madhur has a done quite a few small roles earlier and he should get back to acting and start a film after HEROINE called 'Hero' with him in the lead. Madhur laughed at this preposition and said, "I have a confession to make, I am a very bad actor, I am a horrible actor and nobody in the world can match me." He asked Siddharth not to finish his career by making him an actor

When Sid probed him whether people from the fashion, corporate and glamour world get upset with him for showing their world so dark and hold it against him? Madhur confessed that 'Yes they do hold it against me. After CHANDANI BAR released bar owners were against me, people would meet me at traffic signals and say that what I showed about them was too much'. Corporate world wanted to crucify me, and same goes with the FASHION and PAGE 3 world. My films are not judgmental; in fact they are mirror to the society.

Sid further asked Madhur whether reports of Manisha Koirala being upset with him were true as she felt that Kareena's dark portrayal of HEROINE was based on her? To which Madhur commented, "Manisha Koirala is a very dear friend, I don't understand from where media gets such stories, Media wrote that I have made film on her life. Manisha messaged me and I spoke to her, I explained her that this film has nothing to do with her life and believed me."

He further spoke his heart out saying, "Critics can say whatever they like, I belong to Lawaaris camp, I have my own cinema, and there is an audience which appreciates my films and that's all that matters to me."

Madhur said that he does not take success and failure so seriously, "During my directorial debut TRISHAKTI, I have seen enough humiliation, nobody supported me, I have seen the industry very closely, if you are popular then people will flock you and vice-versa."

He elaborated that he is fed up with the rumours that surrounds him, "Even if I go to hospital or I talk to a bank, then rumour mill goes in overdrive saying that I am making a film on them, I can't have a normal chat with anyone.
