Maneesh SharmaI became friends with Maneesh I told him that after ‘Band Baaja Baarat’I will quit my job and join acting school He just laughed He asked me to go and meet the casting directorI thought

casting director You were still to get into acting schooland in your first film itself you got such a good response Did you expect that I was not launched in a cliched wayas the only actress opposite one actorthe way Anushka Sharma was launched opposite Shah Rukh Khan or Ranveer Singh was launched opposite Anushka Sharma In factI had to share screen with five other actors in ‘Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl’ With so many actors in the film and very little screen spaceit was tough to leave a mark with a good performance And under such circumstanceswhen people notice and appreciate youis a big deal It was completely unexpected Did you always think of becoming an actress People always said that as my cousinPriyanka Chopra is an actresswhy did not I try acting as a careerbut I always thought that acting was a mindless job and was not meant for me I have grown up wanting to be a banker I studied business at England then I moved to London in search of a job in a bank UnfortunatelyUK was hit by recession then and the non-nationals were not given jobsI had to come back to India I thought I would do an internship for six months and go back to London Then one dayI came to YRF studio to meet Priyanka Choprawho was busy with Pyaar Impossible then I asked her if there was an office nearby where I could do internship That is when she introduced me to the head of the PR team of YRF and there I wasappointed as an intern Your parents were under the impression that you were going to get into banking What was their reaction when you signed your first film It was the biggest decision I had to take in my life My parents sent me to London to study banking and get settled in the UK or US The first big shock they got was when I came back to India due to recession The next one they got was when I told them that I am quitting my YRF job because I want to join acting school to be an actor My mom was kind of okay with itbut my dad was worried as he thought that the world was a bigbad one and people may take advantage of me Things changed when they came to know that I have signed a three-film deal with Indias top production houseYash Raj Films My parents thought that I was in safe hands and nothing wrong could happen to me They are happy nowwith the reception I am getting as an actress As a PR personwe have always seen you in casuals Now that you are an actoryou need to focus on your dressing and wear new clothes every time you step out Are you prepared for that I really need to work on that side as I am a complete fashion disaster I care two hoots about dressing and pull out anything from my wardrobe and wear that You would mostly see me in gunjee and linen pants or gunjee with pajamas or T-shirt and shorts Being a tomboyits difficult to get into the vanity mode Fortunatelythere is a team of stylists and designers who take care of memy looks and my appearances With such bankable people aroundthe only thing I have to concentrate is my acting Guns and violence is what we see in the promosis ‘Ishaqzaade’ a family entertainer Its a complete family entertainer Yes it has guns and violencebut the film is not about gangsters or murderersits a love storyset in the backdrop of a small town Both Zoya (Parneeti Chopra) and Parma (Arjun Kapoor) have been conditioned to hate each other by their respective familiesso much so that they have been asked to shoot and kill each other Amidst all thishow they start liking each other and fall in loveis what the film is about Your character as Zoya is very aggressive How did you prepare yourself for the role This is my second film with YRF I thought that since I have already been signedI will just have to arrive on the sets and start playing my character But the reality was something else Just like a fresherI had to give auditions and look-tests over and over again to get the role When I met Habib Faisal (writer and director)he said that I dont suit the role of Zoya and that I had to prove myself I had to lose my weight and do away with my Punjabi accent After one and a half monthshe told me that I was in I have done a lot of hard work for this film I took lessons in firing a gundriving a jeep and martial arts

stagnation to growth; welfare to participation; and from a flailing to a successful state The budget numbers if true are not bad on the first transition But it is disappointing on the others To be fair as the Economic Survey so clearly articulated the challenge before the finance minister was immense and not all things required to revive the economy are budgetary And admittedly fixing the economy is a work in progress But the budget clearly does not have a framework for growth or for curbing inflation Or insofar as one can detect a framework it goes like this Keep on the path of fiscal consolidation so that private investment is not crowded out inflationary pressures are eased and India is not downgraded There was always going to be a tension between the imperatives of fiscal consolidation and inducing growth particularly through public investment That is perhaps the reason why many economists even those like Arvind Panagariya had argued that even a 45 per cent fiscal deficit would not be such a bad thing provided the investments were productive The finance minister began by saying that the tax to GDP ratio needed to be increased but there is no effort to break new direction The government has made some infrastructure commitments But its big bet is on the private sector to revive investment through three instruments: unlocking bottlenecks in existing investment; reforms in the financial sector to enable raising of capital; and public-private partnerships But no matter what the budget says the core infirmity in all three instruments is governance Investment got stuck not because of lack of financing but because of a whole range of issues from land to environment Even for small and medium industries the issue is not availability of money — it is that most banks are not organised to give loans to businesses The fact of the matter is that none of those issues have gone away and on matters of environment any temptation to take shortcuts will backfire in the near future because we don’t have credible processes in place The financial sector reform is meaningless without a serious reform in the banking sector and on the face of it may expose India to even more volatility if growth does not pick up The budget is geared towards short-term capital inflows; on FDI it is still in the 26 to 49 mindset And public-private partnerships are being thrown up as a solution to every problem without a clear sense of where they are not viable The second big disappointment is the continued random and ad hoc structure of public spending What health and education needed most was a framework in the context of which particular allocations make sense Instead what you get is the same distribution of crumbs with the same old failed models The worry about these odd hundred crore allocations is the mindset they reveal In almost none of the schemes whether climate change or welfare related are outlays matched to any kind of objective Someone once rightly said that building half-bridges amounts to building no bridges at all; they are a functional waste Something like that affects much government expenditure and this budget continues that trend Reformers do not understand that state capacity is severely depleted We worry too much about where the state should get out and too little about where it should get in The fallacy is this In the slogan “minimum government maximum governance” we seem to think that the latter simply follows from the former But governance is a capacity that needs to be created A mere hundred crore for gender security is meaningless when there is not enough outlay for core sovereign functions like law and order Maximum governance requires building a smart state and a smart state costs money Projects got stuck because DPRs were not done properly there is no environmental monitoring capacity our statistical service does not produce the data a modern economy requires and will we create hundreds of smart cities with a fistful of urbanists Except some use of technology there is no building of the state Governance on the cheap will get you a cheap kind of governance The greatest cheer seems to be for financial sector and taxation reform and odd items around flexibility in skilling and apprenticeship Most of the taxation reform is still in the future But the finance minister handled the issue of retrospective taxation well with the right kinds of distinctions; the proposed commissions and increase in tribunal capacity may bring some relief But the real problem on the taxation side has been fiscal targets — governments struggling to meet them incentivise tax authorities to arbitrarily extract Administrative uncertainty is a bigger killer than legal uncertainty When Narendra Modi took office even some of his supporters conceded that his strength was thinking in terms of projects not policy The government would be more comfortable thinking about hardware not software This budget reflects that except that most projects are half-baked The government’s growth theory was converting India into a giant construction arena except now it is hoping that PPPs will miraculously achieve this The government’s diagnosis fuelled by a feckless corporate sector was that a slowdown in decision-making was the economy’s biggest problem Well it was not just decision-making it was the lack of modern institutions upto the task of managing the legal epistemic regulatory and political demands of a modern state This budget is a cross between bad elements of UPA 2 and NDA 1; there is no new Modi 1 in sight yet The budget has no poetry and uncertain plumbing The writer is president?I thought guru was my god, I didn’t play my game and some of the attempts by him were unsporting.
