Renowned director, actor and producer Shekhar Kapur believes his life is not exciting enough to be turned into an interesting movie. A social media user on Twitter asked Kapur, "We all know you as an expert of showing people your imaginary world. For a change, it would be fine if you make a movie on your own life experiences that will guide so many people who are in the state of confusion about life." Kapur, who has made hit films like ‘Bandit Queen’, ‘Masoom’ and ‘Mr. India’, responded with, "I am not arrogant enough to believe my life would make an interesting movie.”
He continued, “All I have done is flowed with the river of my heart. My heart has always dominated my mind. But it's not what I advise others to do. I am lucky that I am still surviving, still flowing, and still relevant.” The artist often shares expert advice on the micro-blogging site. He recently posted, “Lessons of Life: You must come down the mountain to climb another one. I have restarted my life so often, giving up when I am on top. Looking for different challenges and starting all over again is key. I often get asked if I am not afraid of doing so. Of course I am. I’m human. But hey, it’s a part of life.”
This week, the star also posted an emotional tweet on Father’s Day. He penned, “One day my father suddenly hugged me. That was rare. He was a famous doctor in Delhi. He came up to me and said, ‘Someone just asked me if I was Shekhar Kapur’s father’. I saw his eyes tear up with pride. From that day on he never told me off for joining movies!” Kapur gained international recognition with ‘Bandit Queen’, based on the life of Phoolan Devi, a robber from Uttar Pradesh and later an MP.
