What could possibly be Gods divine dilemma?
He would probably be trying to find his original creation in what stands of it before him in its present avatar.
Your learning from Oh My God!?
The nature of my belief has changed. I learnt to be God-loving instead of God-fearing.
Any insight on Gods expectations?
Hmm.. probably God doesnt want us to light candles or pour milk at the shrines. He would rather that we give to poor people.
Its also not about joining hands before him in temples or other places of worship.
Your newfound principle on divine matters.
In goodness lies God. Bhagwan mann ke andar hai.
Any special shooting technique for a divine comedy?
The films USP is in its narration,not about long shots and Jimmy jibs.
Which God from the Hindu pantheon do you play in the film?
I come down to earth as Lord Krishna.
Obviously a small yet pivotal part,so how long did you rehearse for it?
We had a months rehearsal. Paresh (Rawal) and other team members would come to my office between five to six everyday. It was very kind of Paresh to help me with it.
Any handy tips that he gave you?
He said,Dont try to act and give it too much. I dont want to see you trying to create an aura.
You straddle a bike and are wearing jeans for the part,so how did you arrive on such a look for Gods character?
Well the question before us was,What if God was one of us? If he came for a visit as has been witnessed with various avatars mentioned in our mythology he would,in all likelihood,look like us.
