Shanghai: Rajkumar Hirani Talks China-India Film Axis,  Stays Silent on Assault Accusations

But in conversation in Shanghai he sidestepped the accusations of sexual assault that were recently leveled against him. “I don’t think we should talk about that. I didn’t come here for this purpose,” he said.

He has elsewhere denied the allegations, and told Variety that the Shanghai festival had not reconsidered its invitation to him because of the accusations.

Instead, Hirani spoke about the breakout success of his 2009 film “3 Idiots.” It earned 13.9 million yuan ($2 million) in the Middle Kingdom.

“Apparently lots and lots of people saw it, which I still feel 10 years down the line. Every person from China I met either here or in Mumbai has seen ‘3 Idiots.’ I think it connected with them

Chinese Script Development Requires A Different Touch, Top Producers Say

  • Variety
Leading film producers highlighted the challenges of developing good scripts in China and abroad at a panel during the Shanghai International Film Festival on Sunday.

Wanda Media Gm Jiang Wei (aka Wayne Jiang) recommended that producers remain aware of the real differences between the scriptwriting process for Chinese productions versus international and co-productions.

The fundamental distinction is that in China, “the screenwriting system is a service centered on the director, who is the creative center,” rather than the producer, he assessed. In his experience, he’d seen that this could be frustrating for Chinese writers, who, eager to finally put their own spin on things, would often fail to execute what he’d asked of them, and turn in scripts that veered too far away from the company or the director’s original vision, making it necessary to switch from writer to writer until someone stuck.

See what Aparshakti has to say on Kudiye ni

Actor-singer Aparshakti Khurana, who is receiving a positive response for his debut song "Kudiye ni", says initially the song was almost locked for one of Varun Dhawan's films, and that it was the actor who gave him the confidence to release it as a single.

Sharing the story, Aparshakti told a publication: "Honestly, when I wrote the song, I had no idea that it will be released as an independent video the way it has come out now... I came to T-Series, in fact, thinking if we could use the song for any film.

"The fact is that the song is based so much on Chandigarh that if I take out those lines from the song, it loses its essence. Now, because getting an exact situation to fit the song was difficult for a film... ?Kudiye ni' was almost locked for a film, but then we had to change the plan.
