The passage of time can change everything and few places see as drastic a transformation over time as our film trade does. The most sought-after filmmakers, while active, become the most ignored once their output or box office returns go South and the busiest people in the past find themselves with plenty of time on their hands.
Under such circumstances, many of these once worthies find novel ways to keep themselves entertained. Take, for example, this noted director who spends virtually each evening (or other times of the day) attending whichever function he is called to. Or another director who spends his days watching his old movies on DVD along with whoever is willing to do so – thanks to the meal and drinks that are on offer! But perhaps the most innovative time pass has to be of this producer, who spends long hours checking out everyone’s WhatsApp statuses!
Well, they do say that knowledge is the most precious commodity but we doubt this is the kind of ‘information’ that will ever make it to the Rs 1-crore question on KBC!
