With Dibakar Bannerjee's 'Shanghai' ready the director has to fulfil a promise that he made to himself. He must show the film to author Vassilis Vassilikos on whose novel Z , Dibakar's 'Shanghai' is based.
True to the original source, Dibakar has kept the Greek author in the loop throughout the making of the film. And now he must keep his final promise, of showing the film to the author, even if it means taking the film to Greece.
Dibakar confirms plans to take Shanghai to Greece for the author's viewing.
Says the filmmaker,"It's amazing how relevant Vassilikos' novel is to presentday Indian politics although he wrote it 45 years ago.He must see the deep and far-reaching resonance of his words. He is now a sprightly 78. But if he can't come to India I'd most certainly take 'Shanghai' to Greece for his viewing."
