Madhur thanks the legend
Madhur Bhandarkar was part of a group of Indian directors who met Hollywood icon Steven Spielberg in Mumbai. Naturally, each of the directors who managed a short audience with the demi-God of global cinema had something distinct to tell him.
Madhur was overheard saying, "Sir, I'm a huge fan of your cinema. Early in my career, I ran a video library and I must thank you profusely, because the films that got me maximum reruns were all directed by you; be it Jaws or ET." Madhur's compliment blew Spielberg over. He stood there humbled and was happy to shake Bhandarkar's hand once again.
Talk of humility, Steven Spielberg redefined the word in his interaction with the Bollywood director fraternity. He was frank, humble and very warm through the evening. He paid rich compliments with a genuine smile on his face. Like the time when he told RajkumarHirani that he loved his 3 Idiots. Raju was so floored. Hirani almost lost his voice when he thanked him. And for the rest of evening, Raju admitted to being over the moon.
