Swwapnil Joshi’s mantra of success

Swwapnil Joshi’s recent release Mogra Phulaalaa has been getting wonderful reviews. The film directed by Shrabani Deodhar is story about a mother-son relationship combined with an unconventional love story.

In an exclusive interview with Box Office India he spoke about being a star and an actor. He said, “I feel that once you become a star, and this is true across India and all over the world, you are not taken seriously as an actor. In Hindi we have Bachchan saab (Amitabh Bachchan), Shah Rukh (Khan), Salman (Khan); then we have Naseer saab (Naseeruddin Shah) and Om Puri. That doesn’t mean that Bachchan saab is less of an actor. But his star persona is so great, that he is seen as a star first and then an actor. It is an image bifurcation. And even if you are star, you are acting, right?”

He also spoke candidly about how his perspective of success has changed with age and maturity. ”Earlier, only monetary success or box office success mattered. Now happiness is as much a success quotient as anything else. Contentment is as much a success quotient,” he added.
