Every Tuesday in February, Film Companion will post a new Imitiaz Ali script. Tamasha, Highway Jab We Met and of course Rockstar will be available for reading and download all through the month on the website. Film lovers, students and enthusiasts can get a chance to read what their favorite films look like on paper – the way the writers and makers had envisioned the same.
Speaking about sharing these scripts on the Film Companion platform, director Imtiaz Ali says,
“Reading a script specifies the job of a director. The director is the difference between the script and screen. In my case I hope no one follows the procedure of how the script is written, since I follow none. Also I am untrained and untutored. And since I have always written what I have directed, the script is more like notes to myself.”
Sharing her enthusiasm about the script section and particularly Imtiaz’s latest edition, Anupama Chopra says,
“Film scripts educate and entertain. In Feb, we celebrate the work of a filmmaker who has shaped our notions of modern love. Tamasha, Jab We Met, Rockstar and Highway are provocative narratives of love and longing. I thank Imtiaz for sharing these scripts with Film Companion.”
Every week Film Companion posts new scripts of films on their website. Udta Punjab, Aligarh, Neerja, Pink, Kapoor and Sons and Phobia have already been featured on the website.
