Episode 2 - Gurinder Chadha

Why Dance Matters

Gurinder Chadha doesn’t make dance films or musicals – but with the slightest nudge, films like Bend It Like Beckham, Bride and Prejudice and Blinded by the Light could easily become full-blown song-and-dance spectaculars. On Why Dance Matters, Gurinder describes how dance formed her own British-Asian identity – from kathak classes to daytimers – and how she encourages her cast and crew to have a bop on set. And, speaking as the UK edges out of lockdown, she explains why live audiences are just as crucial in cinema as in dance. About Gurinder Chadha Gurinder Chadha is one of the UK’s most proven and respected film directors and producers. Her award-winning films include Bhaji on the Beach, Bend It Like Beckham, Bride and Prejudice, Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging and Viceroy’s House. Recently, Gurinder created Beecham House, an epic drama series set in India in 1795 (ITV and Masterpiece/PBS). Her films have received awards and nominations from, among others, the Golden Globes, BAFTA, European Film Academy, and the Writers Guild of America.

Gurinder gave us amazing insights into the way the film came to life, what it was like to watch Bruce Springsteen watching it for the first time, how her messages of hope and humanity resonate so strongly right now and her favourite sections from the movie.  We also spoke to Meera Ganatra, who played Javed's mother Noor in the film - she told us how she was selected, what it was like to work on a major feature film for the first time and how it felt to see the finished product.
