Footage on heritage


MOST would remember him for the film, "The Perfect Murder". He also works quietly avoiding the limelight until it is absolutely necessary. Zafar Hai does not want to be typecast. "It's important only to remember that I am a film maker." Hai finds himself once again the cynosure of many eyes with the screening of his latest film, "The Taj of Apollo Bunder". Based on the Mumbai Taj hotel, which is celebrating its centenary year, Hai has used archival footage in a telling and eloquent manner to present the history of this institution and the people behind it. For Hai, this turned out to be an emotional and satisfying venture. "This is one place that has history seeped in it and has seen changing times like none other." Meanwhile he is getting ready to work on a bilingual film, which he claims is his dream project. For Hai, it's a never ending endeavour since he feels he still has a lot more to offer.
