‘Slumdog Millionaire’s co-director Loveleen Tandan might not be getting as much coverage as director Danny Boyle, actors Anil Kapoor, Irrfan Khan, Dev Patel, Freida Pinto and the rest but the ladyâ€™s really very proud about being associated with the award winning movie.
Sheâ€™s said, “I’m taken aback by the success of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. I’ve contributed so much to it, I never felt I wasn’t part of it. I never needed any endorsement.”
The Oscar glory is something sheâ€™s still enjoying.
Sheâ€™s said, “My favourite moment at the Oscars was when A R Rahman came on stage and started to sing ‘O Saya’ with the dancers. I got goose bumps, and within seconds I was weeping. I felt so homesick at that moment. My worst nightmare was I’d trip and fall on my saree on red carpet.â€
Now there are talks about Anil Kapoor wanting to produce a film which she would direct. But sheâ€™s still not sure about the future, including whether Danny Boyle would work with her later or not.
Sheâ€™s said, “I’ll be doing my own film now. I’m scripting it. All I can say about it is that it won’t be a female-centric film just because I am making it. I don’t see myself as only a woman. My film will have strong voices from both strong men and women characters. As of now, Iâ€™m busy with the making of â€˜Slumdog Millionaireâ€™. There was a guy Sujeet filming the entire crew and unit shooting our film. And I think there’s a book on the making of â€˜Slumdog Millionaireâ€™ coming up.”
Looks like this talented lady has the capability to make great cinematic contributions! Her career is worth watching out for!
