Ajay Bahl’s debut film B.A. Pass was named the Best Film in Indian Competition at the recently-concluded 12th Osian’s Cinefan Film Festival. Bahl talks about his film in this interview:
What was the starting point for B.A. Pass?
Making any film, let alone the first, is almost always a reaction. A reaction to all that is messy, uncontrolled or disorderly in one’s professional, personal or extra personal life. The film becomes or at least you hope that it will become the vehicle that helps tide you over the turbulence. B.A.Pass started the same way.
How did you secure funds for making the film?
All filmmakers go through years of struggle, getting signed up for films that don’t take off, scripts have their own destinies, some get made, others don’t and I was getting stuck with the ones that never got produced, »
