It has always been a pleasure talking to Vibhu Puri, the erudite lyricist, writer and now the director of the upcoming Ayushmann Khurrana starrer, HAWAIZAADA.
When we got in touch with the humble Vibhu Puri, he greeted us with the usual warmth.
Queried regarding who flew the first aircraft in history, the Wright Brothers or our Hawaizaada Shivkar Talpade, he was at his calm and composed best saying,” See we are not challenging anyone or history. As you know the historians of that era were mainly from the West (Englishmen), Iran, Iraq or even China, so they have written the history from their point of view. Specifically answering your question, HAWAIZAADA is based on facts, and lately enough has been written and talked about Shivkar Talpade’s achievements in the media, no use repeating it. So the crux of the matter is that we are stating our history.”
Well, given the buzz, lovely music and vintage feel, there is no doubt that HAWAIZAADA is bound to impress at the ticket window.
