KUNAAL ROY KAPUR
Rohan Sippy is truly looking at making different films. On one end he has a big budget CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA getting ready for a January release while on the other he has a small film called THE PRESIDENT IS COMING which is ready and now eyeing a 28th November release. Since the film is centered on a bunch of youngsters from India getting into a competition to win a handshake with George Bush (now exPresident of USA), it seems to be just the right timing for the film considering elections in USA have just been through.
Says first time director Kunaal Roy Kapur who has directed a successful play by the same name in the recent past, "We are obsessed with smaller and less meaningful things in life. We may not be concerned about bigger problems like flood situation or bomb blasts but give us some tidbits or gossips about someone's wedding or the clothes one wears and we would be busy talking about them for hours at stretch. The same holds good for THE PRESIDENT IS COMING which on the face value has a trivial issue, i.e. a handshake with the President, but has been blown out of proportion to make it look significant."
