Acclaimed director Gurinder Chadha teamed up with journalist Sarfraz Manzoor to tell a deeply personal story. Their film “Blinded by the Light” is based on Manzoor’s memoir, following a young Pakistani-British teenager in 1980s London as he finds unlikely salvation in the music of Bruce Springsteen. They sat down with Hari to tell him about their own fateful encounter with The Boss.
