Away from the prying eyes of the media, a storm is silently brewing. Sickened to their soul by the absolute nonsense peddled by Bollywood, scriptwriters young and old have gotten together to teach Bollywood stars and directors the value of a script. The first step is to register a Writer’s Union called Save the Scriptwriter and the second is to take a morcha outside Rohit Shetty and Ajay Devgn’s houses. Once that’s done, they will make a film showing directors what they lose out on when they don’t invest in an original story.
Scriptwriter Roopmati Jhunjhunwala will be helming the script for the movie project, titled “100 Crore Ki Ma Ki Aankh”. When we ask her what was her motivation, she sips her coffee and says, “I never understood directors and now I understand them even less. They’ve given me a list of movies from the 60s and 70s and told me to adapt those scripts and make room for one item song. What did I do to deserve this?”
She reveals that this will be an action movie where the director of the movie gets kidnapped by a bunch of actors who he’d auditioned but never cast and the only person to save him is his disgruntled scriptwriter. The whole movie is a metaphor, reveals Roopmati, describing how directors and producers are held hostage by the demands of the stars and the scriptwriter saves them time and again.
The movie will be directed by Anurag Kashyap, the supremely talented director who is yet to strike gold at the box office.
Says Anurag Kashyap, “Yes, I will be directing this movie as I think it is a story crying to be told. I remember an instance where I was the assistant to an assistant director in a David Dhawan film. In David’s films, there was no script. We just ate throughout the day and cracked jokes. The funniest jokes would be made into a movie. Khatam.”
The movie is expected to be released the week before Diwali so that people who go to watch the no-brainer that will invariably come out on Diwali will feel guilty about paying actual money for a pointless waste of creative energy.
