After an overwhelming response on day one of Celebrate Cinema at Whistling Woods International, day 2 started with the launch of ‘Lights.. Camera …. Action’, a book on 39 legendary film directors of Hindi Cinema from V. Shantaram to Subhash Ghai written by veteran journalist and film critic Ashok Ujlambkar. Celebrate Cinema is a two-day extravaganza that has been aimed to explore and exploit the growth of Indian cinema.
The author has taken brief survey of hindi film directors like Kedar Sharma, Bimal Roy, Raj Kapoor, Guru Dutt, K.Asif, Raj Khosla and many others. This is a unique and first-of-its-kind book written by a Marathi author.
“It is an honour for me to be a part of this book alongside veterans who have been my idols. This book is like an award to me. I would like to congratulate him for writing such a beautiful and informative group which has documented the story of all the entertainers and directors for the benefit of future generations,” said Subhash Ghai, Filmmaker and Educationist.
Listening to the excerpt from the book about him and his journey, Subhash Ghai got emotional and shared the story of his thought behind making Whistling Woods International and how he has been broiled in a controversy for no fault of his.
“Maharashtra gave me education, my wife and my career. I owe a lot to this state. I am trying to give back what I have gained through Whistling Woods International which is shaping the future of tomorrow’s filmmakers. I hope the government and Supreme Court recognizes my vision and intention and does justice. This school is the result of my complete life’s savings and a contribution towards the country’s education system,” he added.
“It is a moment of pride for me to get my book launched by the hands of Subhash Ghai. The only showman of the film industry after Raj Kapoor is Subhash Ghai. He has not just an entertainer but a visionary. This book launch at whistling Woods gave me a chance to see the campus and I must say that I am overwhelmed. It is easily the best and most-well-equipped film school in the country. I am sure and hopeful that his Whistling Woods International will stand strong and expand all over India,” said Ashok Ujlambkar, author of Lights.. Camera… Action.
