रोहनदीप सिंह :- बिना दूरी तह किए कहीं दूर आप पोहोंच नही सकते!   

उत्तराखंड के शहर कोटद्वार से मुंबई की फ़िल्म इंडस्ट्री में रोहनदीप सिंह बिष्ट एक सफ़ल फ़िल्म और टीवी निर्माता के साथ ही फ़िल्म वितरक बनकर उभरे हैं। रोहनदीप ने हिंदीफ़िल्मों के साथ-साथ हॉलीवुड स्टूडियोज़ और मराठी फ़िल्मों में भी फ़िल्म मार्केटिंग और वितरण के नए मानदंड स्थापित किये हैं। एक मध्यमवर्गीय परिवार में जन्मे रोहनदीपसिंह को आज भी अपने शहर कोटद्वार से बहुत प्यार है। फ़िल्म इंडस्ट्री की व्यस्त दिनचर्या के बाद उन्हें अपने पैतृक शहर में ही सुकून मिलता है। मुंबई में फ़िल्मी हलचल केवयस्तम हिस्से अंधेरी पश्चिम के अपने आफ़िस में रोहनदीप सिंह अपने अब तक के सफ़र पर आत्मविश्वास के साथ बात करते हुए भावुक भी हो जाते हैं।

एक इंजीनियर मास्टर्स को बॉलीवुड में क्या करना था ?
मेरा मूल गाँव ताड़केश्वर महादेव के पास चौड़ (पौढ़ी गढ़वाल) है। मेरे दादा स्वर्गीय पान सिंह बिष्ट गाँव में अपने समय के सबसे ज़्यादा पढ़े लिखे और विद्वान व्यक्ति थे। मुझेअपने दादा से बहुत प्यार मिलता था। आज भी उनकी यादें मेरे साथ हैं। मेरे पिता युधवीर सिंह बिष्ट और माँ माहेश्वरी देवी मुझे हमेशा उच्च संस्कार और पारिवारिक मूल्यों कीशिक्षा देते रहे हैं। सिनेमा के लिए आकर्षण तो बचपन से मेरे अंदर था। हमारे कोटद्वार में गढ़वाल टाकीज़ और दीप टाकीज़ दो सिनेमाघर थे। पर्दे पर हीरो-हिरोइन देखने के लिएलोग कितनी दूर-दूर से आते हैं, मन में सोचता था कि जब यह फ़िल्में बनती होंगी तो कितना अच्छा लगता होगा। लोग बहुत खुश होते होंगे जो बॉलीवुड में काम करते हैं। परिवारमें शिक्षा की प्राथमिकता सबसे पहले थी मेरा छोटा भाई हिमांशु बिष्ट कम्प्यूटर साइंस से इंजीनियर हैं और बड़ी बहन सुनीता रावत भी मास्टर इन बिज़नेस एडमिनिस्ट्रेशन(एमबीए) किया है। मैंने भी पहले घर वालों की बात मानकर पढ़ाई पूरी करने का निर्णय लिया। कोटद्वार के महर्षि विद्या मंदिर पब्लिक स्कूल से हाईस्कूल की पढ़ाई के बादटीसीजी स्कूल में इंटरमिडीएट की शिक्षा पूरी की। फिर इंजीनियरिंग की डिग्री के लिए हरियाणा चला गया। जेसीडी कालेज सिरसा से मैकेनिकल इंजीनियरिंग की डिग्री पूरी की,इस बीच मैंने घर वालों से शुरू में ही कह दिया था कि मुझे फ़िल्म लाइन में कुछ करना है।

बॉलीवुड के सपनों की शुरुआत कैसे हुई?
लेखन के साथ ही मेरी फ़िल्म मार्केटिंग के अन्य पहलुओं जैसे वितरण, प्रमोशन में शुरू से रुचि थी लेकिन मैं पहले ख़ुद को स्थापित करना चाहता था। मेरे पिता मेरे बॉलीवुडकरियर को लेकर बहुत आशान्वित नहीं थे इसलिए वह मुझे इसके लिए बहुत प्रोत्साहित नहीं करते थे। मैकेनिकल इंजीनियरिंग की पढ़ाई पूरी करने के बाद मैं पुणे स्थित एंडुरेंसकम्पनी, (बजाज ऑटोमोबाइल समूह) में काम करने लगा। मशीनो में मेरी विशेष रुचि नहीं थी तो थोड़े ही समय में मैंने नौकरी को छोड़ दिया। इसके बाद मैं मुंबई में फ़िल्मवितरण के बिज़नेस से जुड़ गया। जीवन में आगे बढ़ने के लिए मेहनत, चुनौतियों और संघर्ष का दौर यहाँ से शुरू होता है। एक क्रिएटिव व्यक्ति को बाज़ार के घाटे-मुनाफ़े केगणित में भी कुछ नया करना था। इस बीच कई फ़िल्म वितरण और फ़िल्म बिज़नेस कम्पनियों से मिला।

मुश्किल लेकिन सबक़ सिखाने वाला समय –
यह एक ऐसा समय था जब मुझे थोड़े मीठे और बहुत कड़वे अनुभवों से गुज़रना पड़ा। कई फ़िल्में व्यवसायिक असफ़ल हुईं तो कई फ़िल्मों के व्यापार में पारम्परिक वितरण केनुक़सान ने बिज़नेस के नए सबक़ दिए।
मुश्किल के समय में इस शहर ने सबसे बड़ा सबक़ दिया कि यहाँ किसी के लिए किसी के पास टाईम नहीं है। कोई भी किसी के लिए बिना स्वार्थ कुछ भी नहीं करता है और अपनाफ़ायदा सबसे पहले तय किया जाता है। फ़िल्म इंडस्ट्री में विश्वास और परम्परा जैसे शब्द भी बहुत मायने नहीं रखते जिसका सिक्का चल रहा है, सब उसकी जय बोलते हैं। मुंबईऔर  बॉलीवुड में सिर्फ़ उगते सूरज को सलाम किया जाता है। उन दिनों ये मेरे जीवन का सबसे बड़ा सबक़ था। निराशा भरे उन दिनों में, मैं एक बार फिर दिल्ली चला गया।

मुंबई बॉलीवुड के सपनों का अकेला ठिकाना –
फ़िल्म के सपनों को पूरा करने के लिए वापस मुंबई आना ही पड़ता है लेकिन मेरे लिए यह आसान नहीं था। कोटद्वार से मुंबई वाया दिल्ली की योजना काम में नहीं आयी। दिल्लीमें साल भर से अधिक समय तक कई फ़िल्मों के वितरण से जुड़ा रहा लेकिन ऐसा लगता था बहुत कुछ करने के लिए नहीं है। अब घर वालों को मुंबई के लिए फिर से तैयार किया।
फ़िल्म वितरण के अनुभव को इस बार मैंने बाज़ार के प्रोफ़ेशनल नियम के साथ जोड़ दिया। यहाँ प्रोफ़ेशनल का मतलब है कि आपको प्रोड्यूसर की फ़िल्म के मन की करनी हैऔर उससे ज़रूरी है सिनेमाहाल में फ़िल्म को रिलीज़ करना। यह जानते हुए कि फ़िल्म के बॉक्स आफ़िस पर चमकने के चांसेज़ कम हैं फिर भी प्रमोशन और वितरण के लिएभारी बजट खर्चा किया जाएगा। मुझे पहली सफलता इंडिपेंडेट डिस्ट्रीब्यूशन करके फ़िल्म ‘खाप’ से मिली, उसके बाद फ़िल्मों के सफल वितरण का सिलसिला चल पड़ा। अब मैंएक परफ़ेक्ट प्रक्टिकल आदमी बन गया था जिसे फ़िल्म वितरण में पैसा कैसे बनाया जाता है इसकी चाभी मिल गयी थी।
अपनी वितरण कंपनी ‘जम्पिंग टोमेटो प्राइवेट लिमिटेड’ द्वारा कई हॉलीवुड और बॉलीवुड फ़िल्मों जैसे, खाप, बम्बू, लिसेन अमाया, राजधानी एक्सप्रेस, शॉर्टकट रोमियो, व्हाट दफिश, टॉयलेट एक प्रेम कथा, डेथ विश, गॉडज़िला 2, नोटबुक, ट्रॉय, जुमांजी, फ़ाइनल एक्ज़िट का वितरण किया। मैं मराठी सिनेमा के कंटेंट से बहुत प्रभावित हुआ और अपनेबैनर तले वॉट्सअप लव, बेरीज वजाबाकी, डॉम, मिस यु मिस, पीटर और ओह माय घोस्ट जैसी फ़िल्मों का निर्माण और डिट्रिब्यूशन किया।

फ़िल्मों के मार्केटिंग और वितरण में कुछ ऐसी फ़िल्में भी आती थीं जिनका ट्रेलर देखकर ही फ़िल्म के कमज़ोर और असफल होने का अंदाज़ा हो जाता था, ऐसी फ़िल्मों से मुझेबहुत शिकायत रहती थी। लेकिन इन्हीं फ़िल्मों से अच्छी फ़िल्म बनाने की प्रेरणा मिली और प्रोडक्शन की शुरुआत हुई।

फ़िल्म प्रोडक्शन को कैसे देखते हैं आप?
सह निर्माता के तौर पर मैंने हिंदी फ़िल्म ‘शॉर्टकट रोमियों’ का निर्माण भी किया। प्रोडक्शन, डिस्ट्रीब्यूशन और प्रेज़ेंटर के तौर पर मेरी फ़िल्म ‘थोड़ी थोड़ी-सी मनमानियां’ कोउत्तराखंड सरकार ने टैक्स फ़्री किया। बतौर सह-निर्माता मैंने लोकप्रिय टेलीविज़न शो ‘हिटलर दीदी’ का निर्माण भी किया। यह एक अच्छा अनुभव रहा। इस साल प्रोडक्शन औरडिस्ट्रिब्यूशन दोनों पर तेज़ी से काम चल रहा है। फ़िल्म और टीवी शोज़ के साथ ही वेब सीरिज़ के लिये हमारी टीम आज के दर्शकों को ध्यान में रखते हुए कंटेंट बना रही है। एकअच्छे कंटेंट को ही दर्शकों का प्यार मिलता है, फिर मार्केटिंग और डिस्ट्रीब्यूशन भी महत्वपूर्ण हो जाते हैं। दो बड़ी मराठी फ़िल्में ‘पीटर’ और ‘ओह माय घोस्ट’ की सफल रिलीज़ केबाद हम अब और उम्दा फ़िल्मों की घोषणा जल्द ही करने वाले हैं।

 

बतौर लेखक एक ऐसा पहलू जिसके बारे में कम बात करते हैं –
लोग रोहनदीप सिंह को उनके सिनेमा के व्यवसाय से जानते हैं, लेकिन मेरा एक भावनात्मक और स्थापित लेखक का रचनात्मक पक्ष भी है। 2015 में मेरे पहले उपन्यास ‘स्टिलवेटिंग फॉर यू’ को बहुत सराहा गया था। इन दिनों मैं ‘मजनू मस्ताना’ नामक अपने दूसरे उपन्यास को प्रकाशित करने की योजना पर कार्य कर रहा हूँ। संभवतः अगस्त 2021 मेंयह प्रकाशित होगी।

मेरा ड्रीम प्रोजेक्ट 100 डेज़ इन हेवन –
आजकल रोहनदीप सिंह अपने नए टेलीविज़न शो ‘हण्ड्रेड डेज़ इन हेवन’ नए रियलिटी शो के साथ खबरों में हैं। यह एडवेंचरस शो उत्तराखंड के प्राकृतिक सुन्दर स्थानों परफ़िल्माया जाएगा। शो की मुंबई शेड्यूल की शूटिंग पहले ही पूरी हो चुकी है और अब बड़ा हिस्सा उत्तराखंड में शूट किया जायेगा।
अपने नए शो और आगामी योजनाओं में बारे में रोहनदीप सिंह बताते हैं कि उत्तराखंड में फ़िल्माया जाने वाला भव्य टीवी शो ‘100 ड़ेज इन हेवन’ में भारत के साथ ही विश्व केसबसे बड़े माउंटिनियर फ़ीचर होंगे। ‘100 डेज़ इन हेवन’ शो अवधेश भट्ट का सपना है। इस साल ओटीटी के लिए भी दो बड़ी वेब सीरिज़ का निर्माण किया जा रहा है। स्टोरी अप्रुवलके बाद अब वेब सीरिज़ के लिए कास्टिंग शुरू हो गयी है। हमने इसके लिए ज़ी नेटवर्क के साथ अनुबंध साइन किया है।
उत्तराखंड सरकार भी इस शो में जुड़ी है। इस शो का मूल आयडिया मेरे बिज़नेस पार्टनर और माउंटेनियर (पर्वतारोही) अवधेश भट्ट का है। हम सब इस शो को अंतर्राष्ट्रीय स्टैंडर्डका बनाने वाले हैं। दुनिया के टेलिविज़न इतिहास में ‘100 डेज़ इन हेवेन’ अब तक का सबसे बड़ा माउंटेन एडवेंचर बेस्ड शो होगा।

बॉलीवुड में नए आने वालों युवाओं के लिए संदेश –
मायानगरी मुंबई और बॉलीवुड में सफलता रातों रात मिलती है  बस यही फ़ार्मूले की वजह से सबसे बड़ी भूल हो जाती है। रातों रात सफलता एक झूठ है। आपकी सफलता के लिएधर्य चाहिए। प्रतिभा को मेहनत और धैर्य की ज़रूरत होती है। आप छोटे या बड़े शहर से आए हैं। इस बात से कोई फ़र्क़ नहीं पड़ता, सबसे ज़रूरी है कि फ़िल्म इंडस्ट्री में आने के बादभी अपने पारिवारिक मूल्यों को नहीं भूलना चाहिए। आपके माता-पिता की शिक्षा और आपके संस्कार, मुश्किल और संघर्ष के समय में आपकी सबसे बड़ी ताक़त होते हैं।

OTT PLATFORM FORAYS INTO THEATRICAL DISTRIBUTION

OTT PLATFORM FORAYS INTO THEATRICAL DISTRIBUTION

As an old adage goes, ‘ New games need new mindsets’, the space of Indian Entertainment is witnessing some new disruptions with novel mindsets. Leading the trend is the new OTT Platform which intends to exploit its films theatrically before traditional streaming. NET5 is the OTT Platform which is in the process of releasing Hollywood and International content in Cinemas before making it available to its digital subscription base. With almost two films to be released in every month, NET5 is widening the reach by dubbing it in various Indian languages.

Explaining the move, Chief Operating Office  Balwant Singh explains, ‘We have great reverence for Exhibition sector and we firmly believe that nothing comes closer to the Cinema watching experience . The stardom it generates and the euphoria it brings is an altogether different experience which is inimitable. We want to create a sound balance of exhibition and digital arm of entertainment by bridging the gap. As an OTT Platform, we intend to offer both experiences to our consumers and Legacy of Lies’ is our first offering followed by Bruce Willis starrer Antilife’.

With sudden eruption of OTT Platforms and majority of content preferring this new breakthrough, the scene at Cinema Hall is quite dismal. This move will ensure a steady flow of content to Cinemas before they are consumed on digital space. The move looks positive and timely !
