Mumbai, May 14 (ANI): An autobiography of Oscar winning Bollywood sound designer Resul Pookutty was released here on Thursday.
Maharashtra Governor K Sankaranarayanan launched the book with music maestro A. R. Rehman and acclaimed Bollywood lyricist Gulzar receiving the first copy of the book.
Written in Malyalam, ”Shabdatharampadam” (Way of Sound Track), is an oral narrative which is an interesting mix of music, technology, philosophy and humour.
The book is a travelogue of an ordinary person who confronts extraordinary situations.
Talking to mediapersons, Pookutty said that he wrote the book as he had a lot to say.
“I don”t think age has anything to do with stories that you want to tell, and as long as the story touches you, as long as it can touch people”s mind, it should be told. You can call it an autobiography or a biography, a short story or a novel, whatever it is. I think I had something to say and I put it down and it ran into pages; that”s because I had a lot to say,” he added.
He said though he is not sure whether to take up writing as a profession, but he would surely write in future if he feels something needs to be told.
“I do not know if I am going to continue writing as a profession but obviously if there are things that touches my heart and needs to be told, I will write again,” he added.
Pookutty won the Academy Award for Best Sound Mixing for ”Slumdog Millionaire”. He has worked for Hollywood, Bollywood and Malayalam film industries. (ANI)
