Subhash Ghai: Failure has been the biggest asset for me
Filmmaker Subhash Ghai says failure is a blessing in disguise as they make one push boundaries and perform better
Filmmaker Subhash Ghai says failure is a blessing in disguise as they make one push boundaries and perform better. "In my journey of 45 years as a filmmaker, failure has been the biggest asset for me. You should treat failure as a blessing because it gives you a different energy all together," Ghai said here during his masterclass at the ongoing 48th International Film Festival of India (IFFI).
"Failure is an attempt. There is no filmmaker in the world who has not made flop films," he added. Having started his directorial career with the 1976 film "Kalicharan", Ghai's repertoire is studded with cinematic gems like "Karz", "Ram Lakhan", "Khalnayak", "Pardes", "Taal", "Saudagar" and "Karma". His last few movies "Yuvvraaj", "Kaanchi: The Unbreakable" and "Black & White" -- failed to spin magic at the box office and went unnoticed. He also backs films under his banner Mukta Arts and has a film school Whistling Woods International.
His last directorial was in 2014. Ghai says he will get back to the director's chair but with the right script. "A filmmaker always wants to make a film. The subject will have to something that I haven't done. I don't want to make a film just for the heck of it."
