Bollywood What's Happenin'

The real story of Hawaa Hawaai, unravelled

The makers of the upcoming movie ‘Hawaa Hawaai’ have released a video which shows Director Amole Gupte speaking about the movie, its conception and everything that went into its making. In the video, Amole Gupte shares his dream about making a film on inline skating, saying,

“Some dreams don’t allow you to sleep, Kuch Sapne Sone Nahin Dete. Until you resolve them, it is going to haunt.”


The video also features Deepa Bhatia, Editor and Producer of the movie. She talks about how the subject for the movie was first thought of after the release of ‘Taare Zameen Par’ in 2008, but it did not materialize back then. Eventually, after much research and editing of the script, ‘Hawaa Hawaai’ was finally ready. The video, with its beautiful background score gives a sneak peek into the anecdotal journey of Hawaa Hawaai – from the germination of an accidental idea to its final fruition.
‘Hawaa Hawaai’ is the story of the remarkable journey of a poor boy ‘Arjun’, rich with dreams, as he tries to achieve his goal of becoming a champion Inline Skater. The movie stars Partho Gupte as Arjun, an in-line skater and Saqib Saleem as his coach. Presented by Fox Star Studios and written, produced and directed by Amole Gupte, the film is slated to release on 9th May, 2014, and is touted to be the first film on in-line skating in the world.
