Tabla Maestro Mehul Sharma – The Generation Boy On Indian Classical Music Speaks About His Kind Of Music – Exclusive Interview

The Solo Tabla program is being organized by Parampara Ek Abhivyakti in Triveni Kala Sangam, Delhi on 9th December 2018. Tabla Maestro Mehul Sharma will present his presentation.

When we had a conversation with Mehul Sharma, see how he combined youth and classical music. There was a little bit of emotion, chemistry and lots of music when Tabla Maestro Mehul Sharma got onto the stage to celebrate the power of classical music at the hall.

What classical music for him is “Khudaa Ki Den”

   

Reporter :  Tell us a little bit about yourself sir.

– I Mehul Sharma. I am from Mathura Uttar Pradesh but my Father is a music teacher in the Delhi School, so I grew up in Delhi. Since childhood, it has been a hobby of music that has caught music. Since dad is in music, so when I was five, I have been playing the tabla.

I have initially learned classical tabla from my father Mr Rajesh Kumar Sharma and later by Mr Rohit Poddarji. At age of 18, to refines the art, I started learning tabla under the guidance of famous tabla exponent of farukhabad gharana – GURU Devashish Adhikariji. Guru Devashish Adhikariji is a living Tabla legend who gained his knowledge of pure traditional Tabla by his guru Ustad Sabir Khan.

 

Reporter :  Mehulji like you mentioned that classical music adds to hearts but in today’s pace the younger generation has left this music a lot behind. What do you look at from this?

– It is true that classical music is going down, but the reason is also we are. Today we see that the younger generation has abandoned their tradition and has been doing Western music more. The truth is that the real classical music is becoming extinct, but for today’s generation, a new word has come into the market, which is called fusion. It combines classical music with western music and a new music is presented, and it has started appealing to the younger generation to hear classical music.

 

Reporter :  Is not it against our tradition to break the music?

– It is also right or not. Look, the right thing is that people are not interested in classical music, now they have changed through fusion.

And the other side is wrong on the other side, is our music so much disliked that we have to get the help of western music to woo young people? But the answer can not be given more than just this.

Reporter :  Thanks Mehulji for giving us time.

Producer Bachhu Singh and Director Netar Singh (Mintoo) of KYUN LAGTE APNE HAI Exclusive Chaat

PRODUCER BACHHU SINGHA : ” We Got The Best Support From Every One ”

How did you get inspired to enter the film industry ?

I was knowing music director Kalyan Barhan since the past ten years. One day, I told him that I want to produce a feature film and he took me to director Netar Singh (Mintoo) who I liked instantly  due to his endearing personality. He convinced me to make a musical love story. As Kalyan Bardhan is an excellent music composer, I thought of making this film which is now complete. It is titled KYUN LAGTE APNE HAI.

Will you continue making more films ?

I have come to know the film industry now very well and I am very happy that I met the right people. I will continue to make more films as I am of this knowledge that if I am within the budget and also know the business aspects, then there will be no problems at all.

How was the experience while you were shooting the film KYUN LAGTE APNE HAI ?

We took the local talents like Neeraj Rana and Nitesh from Himachal and heroine Sheetal came from Mumbai. Then we also took Mr.Himachal Harish, known as Harry who plays a major role in the film too. Vaishali, the Miss Himachal runner up was also cast in a major role. For the elderly characters, we had Amar Dogra and Ravneet Kaur,then Sunil Thakur and Survir Singh,Shadab Khan,Jyoti were also added to the cast.  We had scouted the best locales for the film. I liked the Tibetian Temple location as the monastery is very huge and has a magical effect. We filmed one song inside the temple and even outside on the lead pair Neeraj Rana and Sheetal. One song which introduces heroine Sheetal in the film has been partly filmed in the sangam of the three rivers. We got tremendous local support from the  MLA, the SDM and many wellknown people from Himachal. The shooting went very smooth throughout till the very last day. We have also shot the film partly in  Mumbai at Madh Island and Uttan locales, a far off place from Bhayender, Thane .

Who else has contributed heavily to the film KYUN LAGTE APNE HAI ?

Our writers Vinod Mahant,Sanjay Kore, our DoP Tapas Munsi, dance master Sunil Thakur and singers Udit Narayan, Binti Sharma, Shahid Ali, Ishita Ghosh,Priyanka, lyricists Shivam,Tarun Bisht etc. all have done a brilliant job.One more music composer C.D.Thakur who has composed two songs for this film has given catchy songs for the film.  On the whole, the cooperation which we got was much beyond our expectations and now only the dubbing and mixing of final sound=tracks are remaining to be done. We are planning to release this film in February 2018.

DIRECTOR NETAR SINGH (MINTOO)  :

” Producer Bachhu Singh Gave Me Total freedom to Make KYUN LAGTE APNE HAI.”

Tell us about your experiences with director Sohail Khan.

I joined Sohail Khan in 1994 during the making of AUZAAR and continued to be his assistant director in the films like PYAR KIYA TOH DARNA KYA, HELLO BROTHER,MAINE DIL TUJHKO DIYA etc.I worked with himfor15 long years. He has been very cordial tome all the time. I have learnt a lot from him and I will continue to show my kindness to all just like him.

Why are so much fascinated with the Himachal region ?

I have been staying in Himachal region in the Mandi district and Tehsil Jogendra Nagar  since my childhood and this place is still the best suited for making films, specially love stories.Luckily for me,I got into touch with the music composer Kalyan Bardhan who was knowing producer Bachhu Singha since the past ten years. Bachhu Singha wanted to make a film with fresh faces and I was also keen to make one in Himachal. Within ten minutes of my story narration about the film KYUN LAGTE APNE HAI, Bachhu Singha gave me the green signal to make it.  I was  feeling very happy about his decision and we recorded six songs for the film. Kalyan Bardhan was humming some romantic songs and he also had many singers who are excellent in their jobs. Very soon,we all left for hunting the locations which was always in my mind and we started the shooting with sixty strong unit people,mostly they all came from Mumbai. The heroes Neeraj Rana and Nitesh are from Himachal region and heroine Sheetal came from Mumbai.But Neeraj Rana and Nitesh are also staying in Mumbai nowadays and both have cooperated very well.In fact, each and everybody from the starcast till the unit hands have supported me and Bachhu Singha till the very last day of the shooting. The film is a musical love triangle. I am sure, the audiences will be loving all the lovely locales of Himachal region and after the first digital print will come out in January 2018, we will be releasing the film in February 2018.  I also got the total cooperation from Producer Bachhu Singha to make this film. .


” Konkani Language Is One Of The Best Languages Of India”- P. CHANDRAKANTH

Chandrakanth has made a feature film in Konkani language which is titled ME N MY BABY which is based on the theme of women empowerment and Save The Girl Child Theory. Mohan Ayyer had a brief chat with him. Excerpts.

What inspired you to make the film ME N MY BABY ?

The sole Inspiration to make this film “Me N My Baby” is Mr.Mahesh Savani, Head of PP Savani Group (Diamond Merchant), who has adopted 472 girls throughout the State of Gujarat and monetarily helped these fatherless girls to get married. When everyone was criticizing the entire state governments on social media that they have rewarded every Olympic Player(2016) in lakhs of rupees but no one came forward to help the families of Uri Martyred Army Personnel’s, only one person came ahead and met the whole families of Uri attack jawans personally, helped them monetarily and took the responsibilities of their children education is Mahesh Savani (PP Savani Group). He is like my big brother and I would like to thank him for his strong support throughout the tenure of this entire project. Apart from it I would like to thank my brothers P.Prashanth and P.Srikanth who really supported me at each and every step for making this project a reality, and they seriously considered the research that i have done on the declining sex ratio in Goa and as well as throughout India. My best wishes for these three persons who really inspired me to make this feature film.

me5-1600x1200 me3-1600x1200

me2-1600x1200 me-1600x1200me1-1600x1200

What were the experiences you encountered while making the film ME N MY BABY ?

The experiences were really in a differentiating manner. If i would take the shooting part of the film, would like to thank Damodar G.Naik (Ex- Vice chairman, Entertainment Society of Goa), Sanjeev Dalvi (Director, Health Services, Government of Goa) and the staff of Entertainment Society of Goa alongwith Government of Goa for providing me their total support for the noble cause. I enjoyed a lot throughout the shoot along with my crew and Goa being a favorite destination for the film shoot. Being a Goan ,i got the chance to shoot at some beautiful locations which have not been explored so far. If i would take the sponsorship part of this film, unfortunately which is the saddest part of this entire project. My own banks(with whom I bank with, and has given lot of business) are nationalized banks has shown least interest in the subject and were really concerned about the commercial returns with respect to the sponsorship. They never tried to understand the seriousness of the ongoing “Save the Girl Child” Issue and the concerns of the Central & State Governments regarding the declining Sex Ratio. At this stage i cant reveal the names of those banks due to some circumstances.

What are the plans to release the film ?

This film was a proper nomination for the forthcoming International Film Festival of India, 2016 at Goa under the category of Indian Panorama but unfortunately has not been selected for the reasons best known to the members of Jury and Directorate of Film Festivals. We are planning for its commercial release in the month of January 2017 with the help of Ministry of Women and Child Development and Ministry of Information and Broadcasting as well.

Is the film sub-titled in English language ?

The film has been subtitled professionally in English for the various National and International audience. However we do have the plans to dub in Hindi so that it can reach every corner of India under the PAN India concept for raising awareness regarding the Save the Girl Child.

What are your plans for your next film? Will you make a Bollywood film this time?

Since my roots are from Bollywood, where in I have started my professional career from the TV Serial Balika Vadhu as an Assistant Director. My absolute concentration is in Bollywood where in i am coming up with some creative scripts for the cent percent amusement of audience with respect to their Entertainment. My upcoming Hindi project is a amalgam of both Pre and Post Independence subject wherein i have included typical experience a UK return girl in India. Being a Writer Director, i am sure that it would stand as a strong nomination for the next National Award Category.

How big is the Konkani film market ?

Konkani language is one of the best languages of India and deserves to be promoted from each and every angle. Although Goa is considered to be a small State but the Konkani Cinema has brighter prospects at National and International level. Since the Goans are spread throughout India and particularly if we speak about Europe, Portuguese is the best destination and if we speak about Middle East, Dubai is considered to be favorite destination for the Konkani Cinema. We do have plans to screen the film in Dubai and Portuguese as well so that the Goans staying over there will be having a comfort to taste the Konkan touch.
