MUMBAI MAHARASHTRA INDIA NOVEMBER 20, 2016 11.45 P.M.
Last week a film called ” ISHQ JUNOON ” got released. Critics were not kind to the film. In fact they were indifferent. And before general public could even know about it, ” ISHQ JUNOON ” was out of theatres. It tanked. And I know, with it tanked many dreams.
So called intellectuals, learned critics, all-powerful producers, mighty directors and film connoisseurs want to see only results.
But for me story of the journey matters and I know the story of the journey. I can visualise the whole scene. I am going to portray the whole picture today.
People in India have no high regards for Bihar.
They may be even oblivious of a nondescript town known as Aurangabad.
But many years back the story began there. In the same nondescript town known as Aurangabad story of DIVYA SINGH started unfolding.
May be one day in the dead of night DIVYA visualised herself on the silver screen. May be one day in the bright morning she gathered all the courage at her command and informed her parents about her decision.
Do so-called intellectuals, learned critics, all-powerful producers, mighty directors and film connoisseurs know what happens when a small town girl starts dreaming about a career in the film industry?
Do so-called intellectuals, learned critics, all-powerful producers, mighty directors and film connoisseurs know what happens when a small town girl gathers courage and informs her parents?
Do so-called intellectuals, learned critics, all-powerful producers, mighty directors and film connoisseurs know what happens when a small town girl decides to come to Mumbai and pursue a career in films?
Do they know the amount of ridicule someone , specially a girl faces in a small town?
Do they know the abuses a girl goes through in a small town?
Do they know how a girl is admonished, ridiculed and made fun of by their non caring, heartless, callous and crude relatives in a small town?
Do they know how a girl is looked down and sneered by her friends and neighbourhood acquaintances when she decides to join the film industry?
No sirs, you don’t.
Here a small town girl aimed for the Everest and tried against all odds.
So respect the struggle and not the outcome.
Outcome can change overnight and yes, it will change.
She is in an august ( Debut Film Flop ) club. Here is the list.
DILIP KUMAR – Jwaar Bhata – Flop
DEV ANAND – Hum Ek Hain – Flop
AMITABH BACHCHAN – Saat Hindustani – Flop
RANBIR KAPOOR – Saawariya – Flop
KAREENA KAPOOR – Refugee – Flop
SONAM KAPOOR – Saawariya – Flop
HARSHVARDHAN KAPOOR – Mirzya – Flop
SAIYAMI KHER – Mirzya – Flop
I would love to quote a song from a 1958 film called ” Phir Subah Hogi ” .
वो सुबह कभी तो आएगी
इन काली सदियों के सर से जब रात का आंचल ढलकेगा
जब दुख के बादल पिघलेंगे जब सुख का सागर झलकेगा
जब अम्बर झूम के नाचेगा जब धरती नगमे गाएगी
वो सुबह कभी तो आएगी ……
जिस सुबह की ख़ातिर जुग जुग से हम सब मर मर के जीते हैं
जिस सुबह के अमृत की धुन में हम ज़हर के प्याले पीते हैं
इन भूखी प्यासी रूहों पर इक दिन तो करम फ़रमाएगी
वो सुबह कभी तो आएगी ……
Yes वो सुबह कभी तो आएगी .
It will come definitely. I won’t be there to see that morning. But today as I write this blog I can see that a painfully long, sad, cold and black winter night is about to end. I can see light emerging at the end of the tunnel. Sun is shinning with all its glory. It’s warmth will mitigate all the miseries and painful memories of past.
And in that shinning brightness I vividly see DIVYA SINGH, the same helpless, dreamy girl from Aurangabad, Bihar, standing and taking her rightful place. And that too without the help of a godfather or a godmother.
A new NUTAN will be born on that day.
And yes, the world can ridicule her and make fun of her till then.
