Films on real life generate more curiosity: Shabana
Veteran actress Shabana Azmi, who has impressed critics with her latest performance in “Neerja” — a biopic on a late valiant air hostess — says while good stories work, a movie on a real life incident always manages to make people curious.
Talking about the hype around biopics in Bollywood, Shabana, whose film career has spanned over four decades, told IANS: “I don’t think that it necessarily has to be a biopic, it has to be a story whether it is created from thin air. It has to be a good story because that is the raw material on which a film has to be made.”
“It’s just that people are in search of new stories and if there is a good story to be told from real life, that would make people more curious, which is why biographies and autobiographies are made.
“When films are based on real life incidents, there is an extra curiosity. Whether these films will continue with the trend depends on whether they will do successfully commercially or not,” she added.
In “Neerja”, a biopic on Neerja Bhanot who lost her life while saving others on a hijacked Pan Am flight at Karachi, Shabana played the mother of the protagonist, essayed by Sonam Kapoor.
