Laila Majnu 2018 Hindi PRE-DVDRIP 700MB
Mumbai: Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali, who has written the story of the upcoming film “Laila Majnu” along with his brother Sajid Ali, says he initially didn’t intend to make it into a film.
Imtiaz told IANS here: “When I started writing the story of ‘Laila Majnu’, I had no intention to make a film. My first introduction to ‘Laila Majnu’ (the folklore) happened when I was supposed to read a collection of folk stories and ‘Laila Majnu’ was one of them. The thought came to my mind about what happened to Majnu and why did he refuse to accept Laila when she came to him after facing all the obstacles?
“I was trying to discover that what happened to Majnu, why did he do that? As a writer, since I do not get a clear picture from my mind unless I write it on paper, I started writing.”
In due course, Imtiaz realised he had written down several scenes.
“I wrote around 40 scenes just to discover what happens between Laila and Majnu. I kept it aside and moved on. I knew that I do not want to direct the film because I wanted to see something new and only another mind could bring that,” said the “Jab We Met” fame director.
