One Happening Night

  Filmmaker M Night Shyamalan talks about his stint in India, his next film The Happening and how he didn't know that bagging the Padma shrI was a big deal to Udita Jhunjhunwala Night is back in Mumbai after almost a decade to promote his next film The Happening and to receive the Padma Shri. Night's first film, Praying with Anger was set in Chennai in 1992. Every film after that has been set in his home state, Philadelphia, US. In conversation... Considering your disjointed relationship with India, how do you feel about bagging the Padma Shri? When my office first got a letter about the award, my assistant said it's an award from some organisation in India. A lot of groups from all over the world offer me awards. We usually draft a polite letter of regret. But when my relatives started calling and congratulating me and my parents got all excited, did I realise this was a big deal. I find it very touching. I take my position as an ambassador of India in the US and Europe very seriously. You are working with an Indian producer. Any plans to set a film here? Working with UTV (co-producers of The Happening) has been good. I am lucky that people are willing to finance my work. I'm coming closer to working on something in India. I might set some part of my next project Avatar?The Last Airbender here. It's a fantasy film with a lot of Hindu and Buddhist philosophy.

That's an interesting article, but I already knew most of that.  I like how he threw in that remark about how he politely rejects a lot of awards.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.
