hosts lost their openers early to the England seamers England bowler James Anderson celebrates taking a wicket AFP Fit-again paceman James Anderson enjoyed his return with three wickets only to see the rest of the English attack face a tough time after the hosts opted to bat first Kohli on 151 and Ravichandran Ashwin on one were at the crease when stumps were called Kohli made full use of his reprieve on 56 when Adil Rashid dropped him at long leg off Ben Stokes to record his 14th Test century The star batsman mixed the right dose of caution and aggression to thwart the English bowling attack at India’s newest Test venue Bringing up his 10th Test ton with a six off leg-spinner Rashid the in-form Pujara tackled the English bowlers with aplomb Pujara who scored 124 in Rajkot dominated play during his 204-ball knock laced with 12 fours and two sixes before being caught behind off Anderson in the final session Kohli carried on the good work with consummate ease in the company of

News We wanted the viewers to say: ‘Wow she has fought like a wrestler’ says Nitesh Tiwari while discussing his latest project What drew you to work on a biopic based on wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and his daughters Two of my friends who worked in Disney came to me four years ago with a basic synopsis on Mahavir Singh Phogat a wrestler from Haryana who trained his daughters to become world champions in wrestling Though the synopsis was very short its premise was very interesting That made me think that if we dig deeper into it maybe an entertaining engaging and meaningful story would emerge There was not much information on the internet on him then I went to Patiala and Bhiwani to meet his daughters Geeta and Babita as well as their coaches Getting to know the wrestlers so closely was an eye-opener I also visited Mahavir Singh and his wife in their village Balali The ingredients of a good story were there and the task ahead was to put them together into an interesting narrative Watch What Else is Making News How long did you take to develop the project It took us almost a year to write the script of Dangal However during this period we were also working on Bhootnath Returns (2014) We did not want Dangal to become preachy or heavy So we decided to add a layer of humour — I don’t mean roll-on-the-floor-laughing kind of humour but something which makes you smile and takes away the seriousness Also we needed to find the graph — just because we had lots of material we could not put everything into the story The core story of Dangal is close to the life of Mahavir Singh and his daughters We have fictionalised a bit to better the storytelling For the same purpose we have altered the magnitude of certain events The movie and its tagline carry a social message It is inherent in the story of Mahavir Singh and his daughters He braved all societal odds and trained his daughters who became world-class wrestlers Training girls in a male-dominated sport in a place like Haryana at a time when women’s wrestling had just been introduced is quite incredible Dangal is a mix of many things with wrestling as the film’s backdrop At its core it is a family drama that carries a strong social message It is about willpower a man who believed in his vision and empowerment Sport movies in India are often criticised for not being authentic That’s precisely why the casting of the girls (Fatima Sana Shaikh as older Geeta Phoghat Zaira Wasim as young Geeta Sanya Malhotra as older Babita Kumari and Suhani Bhatnagar as young Babita) took such a long time After the casting was done we had to wait for the girls to get ready for the shoot They were trained for almost a year How do you keep people interested in a sport like wrestling through a movie The challenge was to shoot a film for which we didn’t have any benchmark or reference point We didn’t want to rely on filming techniques and edits to give the wrestling scenes an authentic feel We wanted the viewers to say: ‘Wow she has fought like a wrestler’ Did all this stretch the period of its making to four years First we wrote for a couple of years and then we were waiting for Aamir Khan to say ‘yes’ The first task after he came on board was to get the cast right We needed two sets of girls — a younger Geeta and Babita and their older selves We had many criteria They had to look like Aamir’s daughters the younger ones had to look like the older ones they had to transform themselves into wrestlers and they needed to be good actors They had to cut their hair — all of them had beautiful long hair Most importantly they had to be willing to learn wrestling Many girls dropped out because they could not wrestle which is not an easy sport You have written all the three movies you have directed Since I started my career as a writer it is very natural for me to write my script I became a director reluctantly After Vikas Bahl and I wrote Chillar Party (2011) no one came forward to direct it A cast involving ten child actors and one dog was not an interesting proposition for any director Instead of abandoning the script we chose to direct it ourselves If I had messed up Chillar Party I would not have gone back to direction All your films have had child actors Have you become adept at handling them Children need special attention especially the way I work with them Once a child I was working with for a commercial became nervous once the star he was shooting with arrived on the sets However in feature films during the auditions we make kids meet the stars In Dangal Aamir auditioned with all the kids in the final stage One could figure out if the kids were going to be over-awed by the stars Your wife Ashwini Iyer Tiwari directed Nil Battey Sannata (2015) How easy is it for two directors to live together It is easy since the other person understands your profession and thought-process However she has her own style of filmmaking Likewise I can’t make a film the way she does We are very different as filmmakers — I am very methodical and meticulous She is more instinctive I am more sceptical about taking risks I follow the proven path She surprises me I would have made Nil Battey Sannata differently I am glad she made it her way For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Manas Mitul | Mumbai | Published: April 2 2017 2:03

pointless part is to ask "who will win" Nobody can win a war of such magnitude these days and it does not matter who has more guns or ships or planes The fact is that the spoils of a war would be impossible to bear and the taking care in the absurd scenario of a defeat of one by the other of a billion prisoners would destroy the victor in double quick time Consequently while there may be skirmishes at the border and a great deal of needling even with casualties the confrontation in capsule stays equal and India even has the edge There is no all-out scenario so it is an utter waste of time to debate it like it was a soccer match My-daddy-is-bigger-than-your-daddy is not on the cards As a country we do have problems but there is an upbeat mood and Indian military’s morale is no longer that of 1962 China is well aware that Indian troops are well-armed and well-positioned By that measure China’s own military is unwieldy and currently integral to the problems being faced by the country as a whole paramount among them a fear of losing the global market that it dominates in imitation making Taiwan a pale contender In fact more than the guns and ships it is the bruising of the bottom line that is India’s big weapon and with China now facing massive corruption a huge ageing population and disputes on the borders with 18 nations it is got more than just an Achilles heel The weak spots range from Japan over the Senkaku and Ryukyu islands Vietnam over the Spratly islands and parts of the archipelagos in the South China sea North Korea over Jiando and The Philippines over Scarborough Shoal Besides it is also confrontational with Malaysia and Brunei over the Spratly islands with Tajikistan and Mongolia in toto and Cambodia as an historically integral part of China That gives us an idea of the stress Beijing feels on its diplomatic front Now let’s not be nave China still has the potential to live out the words of Napoleon: let her sleep for she is a dragon and if she
