Behind The Scenes – Gurinder Chadha

BBC Radio 4

British Asian film maker Gurinder Chadha is on a roll with two huge projects coming to fruition. We record with her in Jaipur in India, the setting for her new six-part TV series Beecham House.

This project overlaps with another – a feature film fashioned from a memoir by Sarfraz Manzoor about a Pakistani boy growing up in Luton in the 1980s. The boy finds inspiration and escape in the words and music of Bruce Springsteen. We follow Gurinder to the Sundance film festival where the film is the big hit of the event.
