Imtiaz Ali is a happy man in spite of the fact that he has been unable to watch his own film JAB WE MET. On DVD, that is! This is because majority of stores that he visited to buy his own copy of JAB WE MET had a 'Sold Out' note for the film.
"I wanted to show the film to some of my friends but was pleasantly surprised to see the DVDs being out of stock. Of course, I had to be patient to place a bulk order for the DVDs and eventually got them as well", says the born-again film maker who had made his debut as a director years back in SOCHA NA THA.
Low price of the DVD (under Rs. 50/=) has immensely contributed to the DVD's success as well.
"You cannot deny the fact", says a soft spoken Imtiaz, "After a more than satisfying theatrical run, the film continues to find it's flavor on home video as well. I am happy that the film is literally reaching out to every nook and corner of the country."
Imtiaz is currently working on the script of his next film which is expected to go on floors in a few weeks from now. A formal announcement is expected soon.
