about grand strategy All indications pointfor the momentto US grand strategy being on the backburner However you slice itPresident Barack Obamas preoccupationsthe secretary of states travel schedule and the Republican rhetoric suggest that Washington has only two real policy priorities today The first is jobs The US economy may be recoveringbut decreasing unemployment from the current 74 per cent to pre-crisis levels of 45-5 per cent is at the core of Obamas political agenda Strategic matters defence partnershipsnuclear commerceand international trade and economic agreements have been subordinated to job creation India is bearing the bruntwhether on intellectual property rightsmarket accessmigrationnuclear liability or defence salesand New Delhi is now a prime target of criticism not just from the White Housebut from narrowly focused department bureaucracies and the US Congress The second US priority is counter-terrorism (CT)as exemplified by the recent closure of US missions from Pakistan to Mauritaniaand the administrations response to revelations about its surveillance activities Military operations in Afghanistan are now seen primarily through a CT lens Barring an attack on American targets or interestsa US withdrawal from Afghanistan is deemed acceptableregardless of the consequences for regional stability or Indian sensitivities India must appreciate that these are the current realities of US engagementhowever distasteful But rather than contributing to bureaucratic gridlockthese ought to provide India with leverage Few other countries offer the US the ability to alleviate both its near-term economic and security concerns India remains among the largest potential destinations for US exports and investmentand shares US desires to disrupt terrorist activities post-2014 But it is important to acknowledge that Washingtons obsessive focus on unemployment and terrorism is also temporary The present circumstances have been brought about by a combination of economic realitiespolitical and military constraintsand personnelall of which are ephemeral As Prime Minister Manmohan Singh gets set for his valedictory visit to the US next monthhe ought to be focused on overriding short-term differences while keeping the long-term picture in mind What does that long-term picture look like If the past 60 years are anything to go byit is one in

accepted the promos of Meri Pyaari Bindu that were released as chapters Its songs are doing well too The film is looking sweet and nostalgic I have always looked for novel scripts Two of my films — Vicky Donor and Dum Laga Ke Haisha — had very different kind of stories and have done well Meri Pyaari Bindu is not a typical love story; it’s a life story of these two characters from five-35 years of age I’m also excited about Shubh Mangal Savdhan and Bareilly Ki Barfi What kind of expectations do you have from Meri Pyaari Bindu your first movie after Dum Laga Ke Haisha Meri Pyaari Bindu is probably a more commercial film compared to Dum Laga Ke Haisha and it has a nostalgic element Dum… had a nostalgic touch too since my character ran a cassette shop and was a fan of Kumar Sanu But the main hook in it was the odd couple Bindu… is all about nostalgia as the lead characters relate their memories to their favourite Hindi film songs In both these films the spotlight seemed to be on the leading lady Bindu (played by Parineeti Chopra) is a very spunky character and that makes her more attractive Otherwise both of us have equal parts In the movie I’m the narrator novelist and the obsessive lover My character Abhimanyu Roy is the giver in the relationship The love is mostly one-sided In the promos Bindu is out there But she is Abhimanyu’s pyaari Bindu You career has had an interesting trajectory so far We tread the path we choose but life changes gears In the last five years I have seen success as well as failure My first movie did phenomenally well the next film was okay and third one was a flop Success is a lousy teacher but failure is a friend philosopher and guide While in college you played the role of Ashwathama in Dharamvir Bharati’s play Andha Yug The character of Ashwathama in the play is aggressive; that’s so unlike me When I was selected people were shocked because I was skinny and by Punjabi standards I’m not very tall I believe it’s the energy and stage presence that worked in my favour Playing that character was one of the defining moments of my life In the movies I have only played a good boy so far I would love to play something radically different You are acting in Sriram Raghavan’s next Will that fulfill your wish of playing a grey character It will fulfill my desire of doing a thriller I can’t talk about the character Till now I have been acting in slice-of-life movies this one will be different You have tried a number of professions — you compose music sing and have also been an RJ I always wanted to act in movies If I were a star kid I wouldn’t have tried so many things I would have done theatre and directly joined movies I did radio and TV shows because I had to carve my own way Outsiders like me have to reach Bollywood through modelling theatre or radio My father played a crucial role in it When I was doing pretty well as an RJ in Delhi he called me up one day to say that I was being laidback and it was time I moved to Mumbai So how deep-rooted is nepotism in Bollywood The only privilege star kids enjoy is a good launch That of course is important The level of nepotism in the industry has gone down They get a launch but they also have a benchmark to achieve Your brother Aparshakti Khurana was praised for his performance in Dangal He used to play cricket and has captained the Haryana under-19 team When he developed back problems he quit cricket and studied law Like me he was also an RJ and worked in theatre in Delhi He has been acting for a while now even though Dangal is technically his first major role Was it a conscious decision not to sing in Meri Pyaari Bindu It was decided that I won’t sing in the film as Parineeti is playing the role of a singer I am a writer and non-singer in it Even in Dum Laga Ke Haisha I did not sing However I have my own band and I tour with it whenever I am not shooting For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top
