Ever since Jubilee started streaming on Amazon Prime Video, the internet was flooded with praises for director Vikramaditya Motwane for his work. Well, not only his web show, but his journey to success is also remarkable. His repertoire includes titles such as Udaan, Dev D, and Sacred Games, among others. Besides these, there is another project, which was close to Vikramaditya’s heart and it was the film Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal. Released in 2007, Vikramaditya served as a writer for the film along with Anurag Kashyap.
Vikramaditya Motwane reflects on his collaboration with Vivek Agnihotri on Goal; says, “Original script is one of the best things I’ve written”
In an interview with Mid-Day, Motwane reflected on his collaboration with Vivek Agnihotri, who helmed the John Abraham and Arshad Warsi starrer. He recalled, “So, UTV was producing the film, and Vivek had approached them with this story idea that he wanted to do about football, and they said okay. But he wanted a really good writer, so they called up Anurag, and he said, ‘Look, I know nothing about football, but this guy (Motwane) knows everything about football.”
After being approached with the project and briefed on the requirements, Motwane expressed his passion for football since childhood and offered to create an original script. When asked if he was provided with a DVD to unofficially rip off a foreign film, he responded by admitting that it was a similar request.
He further added, “I wrote it, and they were happy. The film got made, but not exactly in the way that Anurag and me wanted, to put it mildly. But it is what it is. At that time, it was like beggars can’t be choosers, you got paid for work. I still believe the original script of mine is one of the best things I’ve written. I loved it. I’m crazy about football, and for me, it was a big passion thing about a sport I’ve loved.”
Coming to the professional front, after Jubilee, Vikramaditya has a film release, titled Control, starring Ananya Pandey.
