Dadasaheb Phalke award recipient filmmaker Adoor Gopalakrishnan, was interviewed by film director Jabbar Patel on Friday at the ongoing Orange City International Film Festival (OCIFF) at PVR Cinemas, Nagpur. The interview took place after the screening of Adoor’s 1982 film ‘Elippathayam.’  Also present during the interview on the stage along with Adoor and Patel was film critic Samar Nakhate.

Speaking about the film, Adoor shared his idea and concept behind the film even as he exclaimed that he never thought that people other than from Kerala would understand the film. Elippathayam is about the feudal life in Kerela. The film is about a man, who’s trapped within himself and is unable to understand and adjust to the changes taking place around him. Taking about the film more, Adoor shared with the audience the structure of the film and also the use of colours in the movie.

Adoor, who’s a 1965 alumni of FTII, while answering Patel’s question, also spoke as to how he turned to filmmaking and his journey after that. He also spoke about the technical changes in the film industry over the years at length. It was surely a treat for the film loving audience present when the veteran filmmaker also answered a few questions from them.

Social media not only helps me stay visible and relevant, but also have a source of income: Alaya F

Alaya F

Alaya F made her entry in Bollywood with Saif ALi Khan starrer ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’. And after a three year gap we saw her in Kartik Aaryan’s ‘Freddy’. Even though she was missing from action in those three years, social media kept her in the limelight for her fans. The actress, who’ll next be seen in Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Almost Pyaar With DJ Mohabbat’, gets vocal in a chat…

Talking about social media, which kept her connected to her fans during those three year gap, she said, “There’s no such mystery left in the life of an actor in today’s time, thanks to social media. Our fans have access to us a lot of time and I think that’s fine. Because we’ve signed up for it to be part of the industry. And I believe, as an actor, you’ll always want your fans or people to see you a lot more. So, I don’t worry about keeping any mystery on my social media. Whenever I want to take a break, I take a break. At least that’s in our hands.”

Moreover, Alaya feels it’s important for a celebrity to be on social media. It not only gave her visibility, but was a source of income too. “It’s important to be active on social media. It was a big blessing for me at least during the three-year gap between my first ‘Jawaani Janna’ and second film, ‘Freddy’. It helped me to not only stay visible and relevant, but also have a source of income. No matter how much I hate social media, I’m grateful for it as it gave me a great foundation that I managed to continue in Freddy. Now, I want to be active because I’ve realised that if you use social media correctly, it can be really powerful in the right ways.
