Once upon a time in Maharaja’s College

Mysore-born film maker M V KRISHNASWAMY assisted Roberto Rossellini on the sets of Viaggio in Italia starring Ingrid Bergman; acted with Padmini; convinced Sir M Vishvesvaraya that there was documentary waiting to be made on him; and “made” Satyajit Ray stand in a queue for a cinema ticket.

Now, in an excerpt from a forthcoming book titled A Sort of History, MVK talks to SUGATA SRINIVASARAJU on life in Maharaja’s College in the 1940s.
