Day 2! #KLF2015

Yesterday, I really witnessed some of the finest speakers, authors and singers. From Shobhaa De’s boldness to Usha Uthup’s capturing performance, it was indeed a great start. I learnt so much about the “Craft of Indian Cinema” in the session that included Vishal Bhadwaj in conversation with Bedabrata Pain. He spoke in detail about characters like “Roohdar”, which was adapted from one of Shakespeare’s plays, in critically acclaimed films like Haider and  how he interpreted them in his own way and modified them.
