Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s epic epic about a real gangster woman Gangubai Kathiawadi goes to the Berlin Film Festival in February 2022. Sanjay Bhansali can hardly contain his excitement in an exclusive conversation with this author said: “Not since I Ντέβδας I went to Cannes, I felt this level of enthusiasm for my internationally acclaimed film. The Berlin Film Festival is one of the best platforms for international cinema. Our film will be screened at the very famous Special Gala section of the Berlinale. I do not know how many Indian movies before that. have been checked in this section. “But I’m glad that a mainstream Indian film will reach this luxury platform.”

The Artistic Director of the Berlin International Film Festival Carlo Chatrian said in a statement: “We are pleased to have a premiere Gangubai Kathiawadi and continue the tradition of the Berlin Film Festival to be a special setting for Indian films. This time with a film that combines the usual art of shaping camera movement and body choreography with a socially relevant theme, not just in India. His story captured us from the beginning Gangubai“An excellent woman was dragged in exceptional circumstances.”

Says Bhansali, “Coming from a cinephile of Carlo Chatrian’s role model is a great compliment. I do not know why our mainstream films are not sent to international film festivals. It’s usually those domestic arthouse films that are sent to international festivals. Gangubai Kathiawadi is a celebration of mainstream cinema. It is dark but ostentatious. It’s my most modest job to date. “

Sanjay Leela Bhansali believes it’s time for more of our films to secure a wider viewership around the world. “Any Indian film that represents our country abroad and creates an impact, makes a difference in the way our cinema is perceived internationally. Today, when we look at Lagaan we believe it created a space abroad for Indian cinema. “Now we feel that a fair opportunity is being given to the style of content and the willingness to create films abroad.”

Bhansali feels that it is the masters of Indian cinema who have paved the way for a director like him. “Satyajit Ray, Mrinal Sen and Shahji Karun have earned us cinematic recognition. “At the same time, if a new film is selected for an international festival, it is not necessary because of those other films and filmmakers that have gained international recognition earlier.”

According to Bhansali, what is the key to accepting Indian films abroad? “I think our cinema is appreciated for its melodramatic warmth. Even in the West, people are now more willing to express themselves more openly. They are not ashamed of open expressions of emotions. Indian films exude a lot of warmth. At a time when the world is full of bitterness, it is reassuring to experience a cinema where the slightest emotion matters. Indian cinema is also in a festive mood. There is a song for every occasion. This is again a new experience for western viewers. Filmmakers like Steven Spielberg are now attempting the musical style we have embraced since time immemorial. Indian films have their own special stamp and the audience out there finds them very entertaining. That’s why they call us Bollywood with humor. You and I may hate the term. But this is how Indian cinema will be known for a long time. When I showed up Hum…. Dil De Chuke Sanam in Berlin they called it “dancycle”. “They were excited to see the music celebration of global emotions.”
