In this issue of ForbesLife India, filmmaker Mira Nair opens up about her notions of cinema and how she draws from the real to tell stories that do not bore the audience. Commercial considerations and authenticity are not mutually exclusive, she states. Nair says her next project, a 21-song musical version of Monsoon Wedding will be “modernist”. We also feature another director, Feroz Abbas Khan, who has taken a less minimalistic approach with his interpretation of K Asif’s lavish 1960 film, Mughal-e-Azam.
At ForbesLife India, from the very beginning, we never benchmarked ourselves by what other publications were doing. We chose instead to create, for better or worse, a niche all our own. Starting with the premise that affluent people got that way by being smart; why not appeal to their intelligence instead of shovelling bling and vapid celebrities at them? So we look for ideas that tickle the imagination and play to your senses, experiences that take you to exciting places and people. And though we live in breathless times, we see value in slowing the pace down a little, in giving thoughts the space and pace they deserve. Through four simple lenses—Think; Live; Work; Play—we hope to help you ‘Live a Rich Life.’
