AyanMukherjee I always wondered what made Karan include our national anthem in K3G In a 2009 interview with a tabloid Karan had this to say “When I hear the national anthem I’m overwhelmed It fills me with a sense of pride When I hear it playing at cinema halls especially the one sung by Lataji A R Rehman and other veterans it gives me goosebumps; makes my hair stand And it happens every time I hear the anthem That’s why I included Jana Gana Mana in my film Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham Indians abroad are extremely patriotic and K3G is about such a quintessential Indian family which is away from their country but rooted to India Follow your instincts but have respect and reverence for your country and family should be the mantra of every Indian” Interestingly some publicity seeking man filed a case again KJO on charges of insulting the national anthem in the movie Karan fought tooth and nail for 14 years till he was finally granted a clean chit by the court earlier in January this year Karan’s next movie Kal Ho Naa Ho which he produced and also wrote the story and screenplay for saw Indian patriotism travelling to USA One of the most beautiful inspiring and patriotic dialogues that you will ever hear was spoken by Shah Rukh Khan in the film “Hamare hath main ek aisi taqat hai jiska naam hai Hindustan Hume Hindustan New York Main lekar aana hai Kyunki Hindustan jo chahe jaisa chahe jahan chahe waisa kar sakta hai Toh phir yeh Chinese kya cheez hai” That’s patriotic enough for me In 2006 in an interview with Aaj Tak when veteran journalist Prabhu Chawla grilled Karan about making films only for the NRI audience the filmmaker replied without batting an eyelid “I make films for Hindustani audience Meri nazar Hindustani audience par hai Woh jahan kahin bhi ho chahe Bihar ho ya New york ya London” Fast forward to February 2016 while addressing students at the Kennedy School at Harvard university Karan had this to say about our Hindi film industry “Anyone I meet internationally when I tell them I make Hindi movies they are like- Oh Bollywood I have tried very hard to tell them we make really good movies and we are not a poor spin off of Hollywood We actually stand tall as one of the leading filmmaking nations in the world We are the only film industry that has never needed Hollywood money or money from outside We have been self-sufficient we have a great domestic film economy and we stand tall and we are the only ones where studios had to come begging to us We didn’t go to them They came to India Be it Fox Disney or Warner They all came to India When I met the team at Fox I told them ‘You have to change the way you operate’ They were sending us big legal dockets to give to SRK and Amitabh Bachchan And I told them where I come from I send a note saying ‘Dear Amit Uncle Thank you for doing my movie I love you lots Karan That is my contract We are a proud filmmaking nation” Sir I have set out only a few instances from Karan’s life to indicate his pride for his motherland India Forget Pakistan nowhere has he extolled virtues of any other country but India Our country is what he was is and will always be proud of In light of such overwhelming evidence it would be wrong to brand Karan Johar an anti-national for engaging the services of an actor from Pakistan for an extended cameo in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil He is as patriotic as you me or every other proud Indian And just like most of his films shot in Europe or America who knows even ADHM could have a patriotic angle to it with Ranbir Kapoor as the harbinger of the same And that is something one will only discover after watching the movie which is why it is important for it to get a fair release For someone who made the goras of England sing our national anthem he could very well make Pakistanis dance to his tunes After all he did make Fawad play a homosexual character onscreen a first definitely in many ways As Indians all of us stand firmly with our country and for those who had doubts in their minds about Karan’s earlier allegedly pro-Pakistani stance the man has already made it amply clear that he has no intention of engaging the services of cross-border talent in future That’s a big blow to Fawad Khan and co As big as India sending Pakistan packing in every World Cup Karan’s decision effectively means Fawad will no longer star opposite Katrina Kaif

even though I was a bit sceptical of the time frame The US has long been a target certainly ever since cricket matches were played just across the Niagara in the late nineties But it was clear then and it was reinforced in Florida that even though you might stage matches in distant lands the real spectators are back home It was a beginning but we are still far away from the moneyed tours that European football teams undertake in the Far East And because the more valued audience is at home in India rather than that which regards India as home but lives in America it makes the start of the second game a very interesting debate Remember the game was to start at a specified time but couldn’t because there was a problem with uplinking the pictures to audiences elsewhere Within that sentence lies the problem that modern commercial sport must grapple with Who is the primary audience and therefore who is the game being played for The real question in Florida even assuming you knew when it was going to rain which is open to speculation was who the more valued audience was The commercial implication of the loss of forty minutes about a quarter of the game would have been significant for the television network even if they had tried harder to squeeze the lost advertising in later (Before you outrage remember it is the advertising that enables us to see the games at the price at which we do) So in effect by delaying the start of the game the message to the paying public in Florida was: yes we need you but we need to protect our primary market first The other debate and one which will inevitably be stirred is: who controls the start of play in an ICC sanctioned and recognised tournament when the conditions for play are fine Traditionally once the ground staff hands over the ground to the umpires they are the sole judges of when to start or suspend play Therefore what is the gravity needed in a situation to allow them to suspend the start of play Like judges I suspect the umpires have to contend with a combination of the practical and the mandatory And if they side with the practical they must be aware of the extent of liberty they can allow What if for example the uplinking had needed another twenty minutes At what point would they be mandated to start the game I don’t think we have heard the last of this though I believe there must be rules laid down I don’t know the law for example but can a spectator in the land of exotic law suits dare I say argue that he paid to witness a result and he was denied it I believe that except in unforeseen conditions you always start on time and the losses should be borne by whoever is responsible for the delay If for example the light towers go off and play has to be delayed by an hour in a situation where it cannot be made up there is a deduction in the television rights that the staging authority gets There can be other situations but there has to be an awareness that there are large amounts of money involved and one party cannot always be saddled with the bills That was the case in two Test matches recently in the West Indies and in South Africa Where nature takes its course and it is beyond everyone’s control you look upon it as an unforeseen business expense and everyone budgets for it But where cricket should be played and isn’t because the host association isn’t responsible enough it is unfair to expect television networks already strained to recover high costs of rights to be left holding the baby In Port of Spain for example the West Indies Cricket Board accepted money from their television partner in return for the right to monetise the television coverage If their negligence leads to loss of play in effect they get paid in spite of their ineptitude because the television rights holder isn’t refunded anything I can promise you that if cricket boards are made to pay for their negligence through lower rights revenue they will ensure that the situation we saw last week in the West Indies doesn’t recur For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top News” the 55-year-old said when asked if he had been told he had to win at home against Southampton on Saturday.
