Hiren Kotwani

It’s been over a year since your last release Apne. Why such a long break?

I was organising my company, overseeing our productions. When I got involved in the scripting of

The Man

I chose to direct it myself. After

Chamku

, our next project

Right ya Wrong

is nearly complete.



Sameer Karnik of

Heroes

seems to have become a favourite with the Deols, although his

Nanhe Jaisalmer

flopped.


Well, Sameer is a talented and hardworking boy.

Nanhe Jaisalmer

was a wonderful film. Sometimes we have people who stick by us, some run away after a film or two.



How different is directing

The Man

vis-à-vis

Dillagi

?


During

Dillagi

, I jumped into it with a vengeance.. but now it’s a bigger responsibility.. it had better be nice.



You’re doing some hardcore action in

The Man

. I believe your mother was worried when she visited the sets.

When people write about such incidents, it sounds like a gimmick. Yes, it can be risky. Being a sportsman, I’m used to doing things myself. It started with

Betaab

, when the heroes couldn’t do stunts and I was like, “What’s so difficult about that?”



After

Socha Na Tha

, your cousin Abhay doesn’t feature in any of Vijeyta’s productions.


Abhay is young and he has his own way of functioning. I’m happy he’s doing well for himself. I heard

Ek Chaalis ki Last Local

was good. He showed me the promos of

Dev D

and

Oye Lucky

.. they look promising.
