‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist ‘is my most ambitious project : Meera Nair
The Award winning director Meera Nair interacted with media in Goa today. Speaking about her movie ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ which is the closing movie at 43rd International Film Festival of India, she said that it is her most ambitious project yet. It is a compelling film, thought provoking, moving and sensual. Shot in five cities covering three continents with a truly international cast and crew of Hollywood, Pakistani and Indian stars, the film depicts two very different worlds coming together through dialogue. She further said it was about how we, East and West, see each other.

‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ is an exploration of bias and the phenomenon of globalization that is both brilliant and unsettling. The sense of nothing being completely what it seems permeates every aspect of Nair’s film, from the characters’ divided selves, to the shooting locations, which see Atlanta standing in for New York, and Delhi substituting for Lahore and Istanbul. Noted director Shimit Amin, who is also the editor of ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ and Kamal Gianchandani, President PVR Pictures were also present at the conference.

Meera Nair’s debut film was ‘Salam Bombay’ in 1988 which was nominated for Academy Award for best Foreign language film in 1988. Her next film ‘Mississippi Masala (1991), was presented in Venice Film Festival. She also made film Monsoon Wedding and directed ‘The Namesake’, ‘New York’, ‘I Love You’. She founded Maisha, a centre in the east Africa providing film labs and workshops for aspiring screen-writers, directors, actors, technicians, and documentary makers coming from Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya and Rwanda.
