With the year's first major release days away from hitting theatres, who better to talk about Mani Ratnam's Guru than the film's titular leading man, Abhishek Bachchan himself?
Without further adieu, here's the hero's take:
On face value, Guru is the story of Gurukant Desai, the protagonist of the film, who I play. It is the life story of this one character. We meet him at the age of 15-16 and stay with him till the end of his life.
I personally feel the movie is about a dream, a dream that I would like to believe that the majority of our country has. His is a special story of that one character who makes his dream into a reality.
When Mani first came to me with the idea, we were already working on a different script and he had had a change of heart. He said 'I feel like making this film and this is very interesting, lets do this film.'
