In the alchemy of transforming a story into a film, perhaps one of the most important stages is when the film encounters its editor. Baid, who made his debut with the mesmeric Masaan, has distinguished himself as an editor who brings subtlety to the storytelling, whether it is promotional material (Baid cut the trailer for Court) or a series like Dahaad or a full-length feature film. He’s worked on a range of genres with equal ease, from the noir sensibility of the Gangs of Wasseypur films to thrillers like Raazi and the candy-coloured good cheer of the romantic comedy, Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani. The editor’s technical prowess is matched by a sensitivity for story, which may be seen in the way he ensures characters and plot unfurl with smooth elegance. Baid has described his process as “soulful”, emphasising that editing isn’t simply a technical craft, but also an aesthetic project.
