So beautiful ! January 14, 2007

Posted by Sharath Rao in humor, india, movies.

Director Mani Ratnam comes across as a really intelligent man and an exciting conversationalist in this interview. I could possibly listen to him talk about his art for much longer than 20 minutes. He ofcourse got his MBA from Jamnalal Bajaj in Bombay and look what he says when the scintillating Anuradha asks him how he has used his management education for making movies.

Anuradha SenGupta: Where have you used that degree. Does it come in handy when you are producing your film or I am just being simplistic by making that connection?

Mani Ratnam: There is a sequence in Yuva where Ajay Devgan is in the lock up and he is still talking physics. And when we were doing it, there was an elaborate equation on the wall and he had to learn physics for that scene.

So I was telling him about my econometrics professor who would write an equation right across the board and then look back and say ‘so beautiful’. So that’s what I made Ajay do and that’s the amount of econometrics I have used in my life.

But any education just gets you a way of thinking. It’s not a direct one-to-one application. But you must have an analytical way of approaching a problem.
