GAIETY


Eminent filmmaker and lyricist Gulzar was in the Himachal Pradesh capital, Shimla, earlier this week. Speaking at the Indian Institute of Advance Studies, Gulzar lamented the renovation of the historic Gaiety Theatre, saying that the original was far more beautiful.

For the information of our readers, Gaiety theatre is a heritage building in Shimla that once produced the best of the plays performed in London. Notable film personalities like K L Saigal, Prithvi Raj Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Jennifer Kendall, Raj Babbar, Anupam Kher, Manohar Singh and Naseerudin Shah frequently performed on stage at the Gaiety theatre. It is also a famous shooting spot most known for films like Chetan Anand's KUDRAT and GADAR (remember the Sunny Deol song, "Main Nikla Gaddi Lekar"?) etc.

Gulzar was speaking at a conference and expressed his views when asked to comment on the renovation of the Gaeity Theatre. He later accepted that the renovation was necessary in order to save the historic building from total collapse.

Incidentally, Gulzar seemed very happy with the good response and the excellent reviews that Subhash Ghai's YUVVRAAJ music album (by A R Rahman and Gulzar) has been receiving and is hopeful that the music will be responsible in getting the film a good start when it hits the screens on 21st November.
