What happens to this city?

Either there is ash or smoke.

Why doesn't anyone say anything?

Why do they tolerate

this smoke quietly?

It's the limit to tolerance.

Let douse cigarettes and cigars.

There is ban on smoking

on public places.

You've to pay fine for it.

Neither smoking nor

let others smoking.

Smoking costs dearly.

Everyone desires happiness.

But at what cost?

Smoking costs dearly.

Smoking is injurious

to your health..

..to your loves ones too.

You've to pay dearly for smoking.

Good morning, guys.

- Good morning, sir

What's happening?

Sir, we're doing the lighting.

Fine, fine.

Mohit, what's up?

How did you call me today?

No, man. Shooting.

GH Mills.

Royal Mansions.

It's a feature.

What?

Tonight?

For what?

Narration.

Narration only?

Okay. I'll be there.

Ma'am, shot is ready.

Scene 10 by Take 1.

And...action!

What happened to Madam,

Get the water quickly.

"Where do we go?"

"Where do we go?"

"Who will understand..."

"..the sad story of the ghosts."

"Where do we go?"

"Where do we go?"

"What's happening in

the name of progress?"

"What's happening in

the name of progress?"

"The bulldozer's

razing down our homes."

"Shopping malls and Multiplex.."

"..are snatching our graves."

"O Government, hear our plea."

"Where do we go?"

"Where do we go?"

"There's no one with us."

"There's no one with us."

"Ghosts have become helpless."

"We don't have the

right to vote either."

"Even the politicians shun us."

"O Government, hear our plea."

"Where do we go?"

"Where do we go?"

"Where do we go?"

"Where do we go?"

"Where do we go?"

"Where do we go?"

"Where do we go?"

What a scary structure, right?

So old and dilapidated.

Yes.

Most of the disputed properties in

Mumbai are in the same condition.

Aditya, Do you

remember that Ragini incident?

Yes, that ghost affair.

- Yes.

Just imagine.

Ragini must be going

through some serious PR crises.

Why such cheap publicity?

Today's marketing mantra is..

..any publicity is good publicity.

If you want to promote your film.

And her act worked.

Her story was all over.

News, TV, internet. Everywhere.

Ghost stories intrigue everyone.

No wonder that such films

are made and run successfully.

What happened?

I really don't understand.

In Raaz 3, Esha Gupta knows..

..that the house she's

living in is haunted.

So why doesn't she just leave?

Tanya, if you try to find

logic in the ghost stories.

..then you are going to see only

ghosts at the box-office window.

And Bhootnath, Amitabh

Bachchan is a ghost..

..who is visible to a kid,

but not Juhi Chawla.

And in the climax, even

Juhi Chawla can see him.

Again Logic.

It is up to the ghost to decide..

..who can see him and who cannot.

Mostly ghosts are seen..

..to those people

who are in trouble.

Or someone who create

troubles for them. Get it?

Good morning, sir.

You..

- Raju, sir.

Raju writer.

Oh yes yes.

What are you doing here?

Sir, I was here to see

location with someone...

I saw you here then I

thought to meet you.

That's the real job of

a struggling writer.

So, what do you want?

- Sir I want one single chance.

Sir, I've a superhit idea, sir.

Sir, just give me one hearing.

Sir FIMFARE, ZEE, IIFA, TOIFA,

..Even the Lion's club

award will be yours sir.

Sir, just hear me once.

You are here also... Ok

leave from here.. Get out.

Mr. Gupta, remember I

came to your office.

Yes, unwanted.

- And I hugged you..

..in your last

film's success party.

Remember, sir.

- You had crashed the gate at the party.

And gulped down the entire bottle.

Now Just get out from here,

or I'll make you regret it.

Mr. Gupta,

What else can you do with me?

I've been struggling for 5 years..

..but I couldn't get one break.

No place to stay, no food to eat.

But no problem, sir.

The day will come soon when..

..a lucky director

will accept my story..

..and make a

super-duper blockbuster film.

And then it will be

your loss, sir, not mine.

Because I might be unfortunate..

..but I have hunger in me,

I've confidence.

If you're hungry, go and

have some fritters. Get out.

I will, sir. I will eat that.

But remember one thing.

Those who eat fritters

during their bad phase..

..They will be

exorbitant at their good time.

Bye, sir.

I wonder how he got in here.

Filmy strugglers are

like unwanted messages.

No matter how many times you

delete them they keep coming.

It is very frustrating.

Aditya, this is Hemantbhai.

He will take us around.

Hi, Hemantbhai.

I am Aditya, Hi and

this is Tanya, my AD.

Which is the latest film

that you made?

No feature film yet.

No feature film yet.

Nice title.

Hemant, he makes commercials.

It's important

to make commercials..

..otherwise people don't like it.

Are you casting Salman?

Hemantbhai, he wants to

say that I make ad-films.

Advertisement films.

- I see.

The things that bore you..

..between TV serials and news.

Frustrating.

In 1932, the workers burned

this mill down to the ground.

Frustrating.

And from 1985 till now..

..around 50-60 films

have been shot here.

100 years ago, Gaindamal..

..built this mansion on

the plot next to his mill.

To entertain his British guests.

After the Lingering doubt shoot..

..he's been renting it

out for shootings again.

You're the first director..

..who's come here

after that incident.

Otherwise it was closed

for the last one year.
