When I interviewed David Fincher about Mank for @vulture and @nymag, I asked him why he never takes a writing credit. We didn't have room for his full answer, but it's illuminating, and I'm happy to share it here.
Most of the Indian Film Industry professionals need to read this. Credits -what you deserve vs what you feel you are entitled vs being a bully. High time the credits issue gets sorted across the board! Also Daal mein namak daalne se daal aapki Nahin ho jaati... samjho bhai!
@smritikiran Also Daal mein namak daalne se daal aapki Nahin ho jaati... samjho bhai!
I didn't understand, what do you mean here when you say that.
@smritikiran Hahaha dal main namak is the best! But what to do about fragile egos? Yahan toh "title suggested by" se lekar "concept/idea by" bhi hota hai. And improv by actors is "additional dialogues" sometimes. 😝
@smritikiran May be worse in the situation with taking on credit as a producer. Films these days have gazillion "producers" credited when only a few actually put in the work to produce a film.
जो गल काटै और का, अपना रहै कटाय।
साईं के दरबार में बदला कहीं न जाय॥
जो व्यक्ति किसी जीव का गला काटता है उसे आगे चलकर अपना गला कटवाना पड़ेगा। परमात्मा के दरबार में करनी का फल अवश्य मिलता है। देखिए साधना चैनल पर शाम को 7:30 बजे से
