Mumbai, Feb. 25 -- Film-maker Dibakar Banerjee, who met one of his contemporaries, Vidhu Vinod Chopra at a city event, seems to have found a producer for his film in Chopra.
Both were present at the event on Monday (February 23) to discuss the life of the legendary film-maker-actor Guru Dutt. Directors Anurag Kashyap and Farhan Akhtar, along with authors Dinesh Raheja and Jitendra Kothari also took part in the discussion.
As the conversation veered towards failures in Dutt's life [in terms of his films that didn't do well], Dibakar said that failure has affected him too. But immediately, Chopra countered him, saying that one should think about making a good film and success will follow eventually.
Talking about his 2003 hit, Munna Bhai M.B.B.S., Chopra said, "When it released, the theatres were empty on the first day. But since it was a good film, it picked up in the next two days, and went on to become a hit."
Chopra then told Dibakar that he loved the trailer of his upcoming detective film, and hoped that the movie is as good as the trailer. However, Chopra assured Dibakar that even if the movie didn't do well, he would finance his next project.
"If the film is as good as the trailer, but doesn't work, come to me, I will give you ten times the money of your last film to make your next (sic)," says Chopra.
