Son of a soldier, I was born in Sultanganj in Bhagalpur district, Bihar. My childhood days were spent in an earthy rural life. I was deeply inspired by the rich folk culture of Buddha’s own land, Bihar. Right from the beginning, I Grew up with real images of Melas, Ramleelas, Bahuripiyas, incredible rituals, strong religious milieu and the vibrant Mithila Art. Natural calamities like flood and drought gifted unforgettable images. Changing seasons of rural life on the bank of river Ganga matured into a sense of poetry and language. Wonder years passed chasing steam trains that passed through the fields of my native village. Listening to radio programs made for defense personals was my only window to the outside world. With such a treasure of inspirational experiences a story teller evolved. I am a practicing film maker in Bombay today.

looking forward to this weekend...

these days when i am in mid of the most crucial part of my film making process...
writing screenplay,pitching it to producers,meeting actors,deciding on team,feeling lost and lonely...scared...insecured...talking to invisible charachters...listening to unheard music...feeling high...
after making two films yet not familiar and comfortable with these emotions...
but some how i have got addicted to these feelings and crave for them too...

crashing on box office twice has strengthen my will to follow my gritty vision of trying to find a different way of story telling...
also in trying to find a balance between hard work and public relations in which i find my self very poor...
discovered blogging and a new world full of wonderful people,friends,thoughts...

in result, my debut film is yet to be discovered by many bollywood film lovers...

a wonderful idea in bollyblogging initiated by michael on his group site bollywoodbloggers in' bloggers meet director' ,and...

... on this weekend i am going to read the review of my debut film'PRAAN JAYE PAR SHAAN NA JAYE' on ten different blogsites across the globe by bollybloggers and lovers of bollywood films...
just dont have words to express my joy...
and i am looking forward to this weekend...
this would be so unwinding and what can happen to a filmmaker better than this...
that people are watching and reacting to his film...

when asked about' bollyblogging ' by a blogging friend DJ from bollywood blogs network my reply was-
...since we all bollybloggers know 'bollywood' through its music,films,performances reviews,news,buissness analysis star glamour and their gossips and its anthropological significances along with its artistic values,so we all know 'bollywood'and enjoy on a common platform-blogging,'bollyblogging'...it keeps me updated with its real reviews, very human and personal reactions towards a film,unbiased views about story,performances,music and healthy gossips...
as a filmmaker from bollywood i have lost faith in media and critics of bollywood today-it seems all is business deal here,in such a case blogger comunity is only hope,and i call upon all bollywood lovers to join bollyblogging and keep alive the spirit of BOLLYWOOD

thank you michael for making blogging such a meaningful experience ...
thank you maini for making me feel that language is not a barrier...
also looking forward to such experiences with other bollywood films...
happy bollyblogging...
cheers,
jhaji.
