Indian Film Director
CURATED BY :
How important are awards for you ?
Not at all. My award and reward are the personal stories people tell me about how my film affected them and their take away. Awards would be important if they made sense and were credible.
Do you enjoy writing or directing ?
Both. Writing is great and beautiful. Every day one is struggling with a scene and then you crack it. It is great fun. Shooting gives me an adrenaline rush working with a group of people coming together. I love to be on a set. In the mornings, I feel why did I choose this profession as you don’t want to get up and work. But when you shoot scenes to your satisfaction, then you feel good.
Do you feel the need to make a film soon after a successful project ?
In fact, I feel the opposite. I want to relax. I feel, there so much of me taken out with each film – mentally, physically, emotionally. I need to some air and time to resuscitated and rejuvenated. I give my everything in a film. The rest of the world doesn’t matter to me when I am working on a film. And to live that like for one and a half years – where my energy is sucked out- is too much. If I miss the set too much, I shoot an ad. It’s not that hectic and fun too.
