The filmmaker has seen 71 autumns but the spring in his stride makes it clear that he is still hungry and fit to hit a few more punches. Subhash Ghai promises never to give up. We met him for a chat and came back stuffed with his birthday cake! Excerpts:
How old do you really feel now?
I don’t feel old. I’ll feel old perhaps the day I am in the grave. We have 100 years to live and we have no business feeling old before time. The secret to my youth is the fact that I mingle with youngsters, understand their vibe and follow a healthy routine. People feel bad when they realise that I’m not hurt despite so many falls. Main waqt se kadam mila kar chalta hoon, peeche palatkar nahi dekhta.
