Film making is a tough Task: Rajat Kapoor

Actor and director, Rajat Kapoor talks about his experience of making a film.

It is a difficult task to make a film. It is certainly not an easy job because you have to not only believe in yourself, but convince a hundred other people to believe in you. First get a producer, then cameraman, production designer, star cast… you have to convince everyone and get them to your world.

Rajat said.

The actor pulled off small budget entertainers like Mithya, Mixed Doubles and Fatso!. But he says while moviemaking is about joint efforts of a lot of people, a director has to string them all together.

You make a film in collaboration (with lots of people). Unless they don’t believe in your vision, you can’t make a film. That is one of the reasons why a director’s job is difficult. Many of them don’t make a film, maybe because they don’t believe in themselves.

said Rajat.

He will next be seen in Sharat Katariya’s unusually titled 10 ml Love, and says as an actor, he completely gave himself into the demands of his director.

When I act, I don’t think about anything else. As an actor, I submit myself to the director because at that point, I am not making a film. I am just a part of it. The problem arises when an actor thinks that he is bigger than the film.

said Rajat, who is overwhelmed how his protege Katariya has directing him for the big screen in 10 ml Love.

10 ml Love, which also features Tisca Chopra, is slated to release Dec 7.
