Making Jodhaa Akbar visually stunning

If Jodhaa Akbar has stunning visuals, Kiran Deohans is the man to credit.

The Director of Photography started his career way back in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. After a sabatical, he did films like Aks and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. Deohans returns behind the camera for Ashutosh Gowarikar's Jodhaa Akbar.

He tells Patcy N more about the historical film.

Why do you take such long breaks between two films?

I like shooting films as well as commercials. When I do films, I don't take up another project unless I finish it.

I don't believe in handling two projects at the same time. And once I'm done with the film, I take a break because I get too involved in it. Either I make a documentary, or an ad or a small film. I always take gaps between two big films.

The gap between Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and Aks was really very big. But then again, I select films only if the script excites me. If it belongs to a different genre, then I get to do much more. That's challenging for me.

Aks was dark brooding film while Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham was happy and colourful.
