My heart goes out to India, I can go on and on describing the grandeur of this glorious nation. It is another co-incidence that today I am writing and composing a song for a video ‘Ghar Ghar Tiranga’ to celebrate the 75th year of our Independence.”

Bollywood’s superstar Shah Rukh Khan made his way into the hearts of the audience with his spectacular performance in “Pardes.” Subhash Ghai adds, “I kept reminding him in every scene and song that he has to avoid his compelling, romantic side to justify Arjun’s character.

I pour my heart and soul into every film of mine. Filmmaking is indeed a business but a business of the heart wherein you pour out all that you have for the audience to rejoice and relish.”
