#SK17 screenplay & dialogues locked 🥳😌😇 Have always felt that film scripts are like birds 🐦 .. they have to be left freely so that they can fly & reach unknown boundaries too ... but later have realised that few scripts are like birds 🐦 , a few are like butterflies 🦋 & a few are like dinosaurs 🦖 better to get them locked so that they can be kept in control 😌 and don’t do much damage later ! 😅😌😬 This one joins the latter category.. !!😉 All scripts are close to your heart... this one jus opened my heart 💓 ! Made me feel creatively alive , made me emote & think a lot of how scenarios in life can become in unbelievable yet possible situations ... so the decision to travel and write this down in a few days was the plan .. but the time it has taken 😌😟😨🙄 😬 LoL ... unexpected but should admit it was the best few days of my life :)) starting from Cannes crossed many countries in these few days :) Traveled in almost all possible means of transport .. 🚢 🚞 🚗 🚲 🏍 ✈️ 🚕 🚁 Accompanied by nature , its’ unimaginable patterns that accentuate ur brain & heart sooo much , (one must travel to believe this ...) so many sunrises 🌅, sunsets .. waves , breeze .. different faces ... smell ... music .. different languages , culture .. sooo many unseen colours , unknown tastes , unique art & imaginations ... things that happen everyday .. but to give the attention they all deserve , to see the right things - at the right the time , from the right place makes all the difference !
