Sorcar Indrajal: private and purist - Economic Times (blog)
My question was loaded as what I really wanted to ask him and couldn’t was, why he did not diversify and appear on television. “Amitabh Bachchan performed magic on screen in Ajooba. Does that make him a great magician?” Sorcar replied with his trademark grin. “Until I have an effect on all the senses of a live audience, I do not consider it magic,” he added. Sorcar wants to hold us spell bound. He does not want his audience to saunter over to the kitchen to fetch frozen French fries during a commercial break even if it means more money for him. He does not want anything or anybody belittle his magic, least of all the medium through, which it is channeled to us.
