Perennial Power-ista: Deepa Mehta

Text by Mala Vaishnav

Best known for her elemental trilogy, Fire, Earth and Water, and her recent felicitation for Midnight’s Children, Deepa Mehta is Verve’s global favourite

The Amritsar-born, Toronto-based filmmaker, best known for her elemental trilogy, Fire, Earth and Water, received an honorary degree from Mount Allison University last year and the best feature film award from the Director’s Guild of Canada for Midnight’s Children in October. All eyes are on her next productions, Exclusion, that recreates the real life tragedy of Komagata Maru in 1914 and the adaptation of Shilpi Somaya Gowda’s Secret Daughter for the big screen.

Success Mantra: ‘Honesty for me works.’

Thought Filter: ‘All art is political, it’s not personal. Somehow it reflects on the politics of our time.’
