Mumbai: Subhash Ghai who was in Cannes to announce his first ever international film based on Osho, was honoured with the TITAN Reginald F Lewis Film Honors for his legendary contribution to Indian cinema. He received this honour the same day when he received an award on behalf of veteran actress Sridevi’s family making the moment overwhelming for him.

Osho Rajneesh’s story, which was the subject of Netflix’s documentary Wild Wild Country, is getting another screen birth with Bollywood filmmaker Subhash Ghai slated to co-produce a biopic on the controversial spiritual guru with an Italian production house.

Filmmaker Subhash Ghai was accompanied by Namrata Goel – producer of the film Manto for the ceremony held at a majestic beach in Cannes with a mostly western audience. When Subhash Ghai was asked to speak about the late actress he realized that most of the audience present there won’t know the legend Sridevi was. Indian cinema and then queen of Indian cinema Sridevi and how the entire nation paid tribute to India’s first superstar on her sudden demise who worked in 300 films in 7 different languages.

The Other Side of the Ocean as a producer under Indo-Italian co-production to be directed by Italian director Lakshen Sucameli in the English language for global market on interesting and dramatic chapters of Osho’s life from childhood till his death in 1990,” said Ghai.

In an interview to Osho News in 2010, the director had revealed the premise of the story. The film “tells the story of a female journalist who follows Osho’s life in America, then onto the world tour until his death in Pune in 1990,” he had said.

Subhash Ghai was ecstatic to talk about Sridevi and even enacted a scene on how Sridevi used to deliver her dialogues with electric effect and otherwise being so calm on sets and how she always surprised the director along with the entire unit.

Rajneesh’s move to America was the subject of the documentary where the directors explored the rise of the cult in Oregon, America, the internal politics of the commune and the distrust of the locals towards the guru and followers.

The commune did not survive for long and Rajneesh was arrested while trying to flee Oregon. He left the US and returned to his ashram in Pune.

He also shared that in between the scenes Sridevi used to tweak the dialogues and perform it so magically that he often changed dialogues of the co-actor to raise a bar set by her. Subhash Ghai described Sridevi as a naïve simple lady with dignity but electrifying in front of the camera who tirelessly worked to become an icon for next generation.

The event was mostly attended by western filmmakers and gave a huge ovation for Sridevi. Ghai also thanked organisers to honour him with a certificate of tribute to his legendary work in Indian cinema.
