Vastavam web: Veteran filmmaker Subhash Ghai today said many of his films were a product of his “loneliness” – the time he spent under the trees at some popular hill stations in Maharashtra.Ghai said he was never much interested in studies and was always attracted to the world of acting and music.”I was always interested in acting and music. I was not interested in studies during my school days. However, I never failed in my exams. The reason for this being, one month prior to exams I used to go and sit under trees in the villages and study,” he said.”Many of my famous movies emerged from the loneliness when I worked under trees giving serious thoughts at Lonavla and Igatpuri. Therefore, you should all plant maximum trees to preserve and protect the nature and environment,” he said
