“The Cup was something I rolled out of the bed and shot for it’s about my own people whereas Vara… meant stepping into a new territory with a new cast and crew” The 96-minute English feature was the opening film at the Busan International Film Festival in 2013 Author teacher and a consummate cinema lover Norbu’s inspiration comes from Satyajit Ray’s cinema So much so that he dedicated part of ‘Vara… to Ray’s ‘Charulata’ “I must’ve watched Charulata 40 times I am drawn to Bengali songs Carnatic music and indulge in their literature” he says ‘Vara…’ intertwines the world of Hindu gods with classical Indian music and dance Norbu says he was captivated by the idea of devadasis and the strength of a woman Punctuated with a Bollywood ‘item’ track exposing human weaknesses and close up shots of the characters ‘Vara…’ is an exploration of the human form “I am not much into Hindi film songs but I am a fan of AR Rahman I wrote to him and also to Shankar Mahadevan I love his (Mahadevan’s) track ‘Breathless’ and he agreed to write me a song” says Norbu who got hooked to cinema after watching moving images shot at an Indian railway station and then Man with the Golden Gun in London For

Pakistan player “(The former cricketer) was like a father figure to him and (Ahmed) was approached with a corrupt offer which he rejected” Australian barrister Kevin Egan told the Sydney Morning
