1\. What has been the role of Mumbai towards cinema since the past one hundred years?

2\. You have recently mentioned that cinema has now being reduced to a commodity. What makes you say that? How do you respond to movies like Court and Fandry?

3\. You have been associated with the film society movement in the seventies and eighties. Can you tell us what are the milestones in this movement?
