Kalmal Hasssan in one of the interview talking about films said, he wants to be like Spielberg and quotes Bergman!
“I’m borrowing a line from writer-filmmaker Ingmar Bergman here. He said, ‘Every time I do a film, I think this is the last film.’ It could be. We don’t really know. Hypothetically, what would I do if this were my last film? I don’t know if I will be allowed to make another film. Anything unforeseen can happen. So every film that I make, I just put everything I have in it. You see, for the audience it may not be the last film that they are seeing. But for an actor, every film he does, should be done in that spirit, because that’s the only way to approach your work. I will not kill myself over a film. I adopt a very motherly attitude to every film of mine. I want to feed it, nurture it, and give it all the emotion I have. So many things can go wrong even if you are the top star. The biggest names like Jonny Depp, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, if you think there is 200 crore riding on each of their projects, there are also 200 crore-worth of obstacles to surmount. Believe me, if you live, eat, breathe movies like the way I do, then you tend to obsess over your movies. An actor, filmmaker can either be just an actor — shun the problems on set, lock himself inside his vanity van and play with Dame Luck — or he can be right there with the rest of the crew leading from the front. Makers like Steven Spielberg etch every line that goes into making their film. I prefer to be like Spielberg, this keeps me happy and busy.”
