The Game Of The Name

This weeks biggest releases, Aamir Khan’s directorial debut ‘Taare Zameen Par’ and Anees Bazmee’s megastarrer comedy ‘Welcome’. No, this entry is not about their reviews or the making of their act.  I heard a rumuor [rumour : because I cannot confirm it] about the conflict between Anil Kapoor and Akshay Kumar about whose name should be  before others in the film credits. Anil Kapoor argued since senoirity should be a preferred way of listing the credits, Akshay being the lead actor in the movie pulled the case on his side. It ended up Anil Kapoor winning this unusual battle for fame.

On the contrary, in the credits of ‘Taare Zameen Par’; Darsheel Safary’s name appears before Aamir Khan’s. Aamir Khan, yet recieves tremendous appreciations even if Darsheel Safary steals the show. Aamir didn’t overshadow the real star of the movie Darsheel, who carries the entire movie on his shoulders. And most importantly, Aamir didn’t let his ego ruin the wonderful masterpiece which he has put in place.

How many people really restrain their ego from taking over them? Does the order of the names appearring in the list matter so much that you are willing to destroy a relationship? The best actor award is not won by the order of the names in the credits but genuine acting skills and ability to perform on screen. Similarly in various situation of the life, the act matters rather than the name. A profund thought, that too from a bollywood conflict. 🙂
