He gave Hindi cinema some of its best-loved films over two decades ago and then followed his heart all the way to Coonoor, where he shelved filmmaking for cheese-making. Having launched Aamir Khan with Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Mansoor Khan returned to all things mainstream only briefly in 2008 to support nephew Imran’s debut. Now, the IIT and MIT alumnus is preparing to return to the spotlight once again, only this time with a project far more in line with his education. On October 11, Mansoor will make his debut as an author, at an event hosted by the very cousin he launched way back in 1988. Titled The Third Curve, Mansoor’s manifesto suggests that the time is ripe for a reality check, with growth as we know it having come to its end. Proposing “controlled shrinkage” as the only “sensible way out,” The Third Curve examines the connection between the compulsions of economic growth and the limits imposed on us by energy and nature. Naturally, we can’t wait to get our hands on a copy.
