Nagraj Manjule: Unforgettable Moment

nldn3cecddisiNagraj Manjule is still high on the success of Sairat and is being inundated with phone calls. The director recently visited Film Bazaar for a special session on Regional Films. Before the session began, Box Office India caught up with the director. Here’s what he had to say:

Nagraj Manjule on Film Bazaar
I am not very clued in to film festivals and it was my producers of Fandry who got the film here to Film Bazaar for a screening. I knew Shyam Benegal was watching the film and I was disappointed as I couldn’t get into the room to watch it as I didn’t have a pass. So I waited outside the room. When he emerged, later, he was all praise for my film. It was the first screening seen by someone like him and that boosts your confidence. That’s my most memorable moment from Film Bazaar.

On Marathi films 
A lot of regional filmmakers are here with their films and it’s a good platform where you get to work on your script and also get co-producers. Marathi cinema is not star-dominated; it’s content-dominated. I believe that, in the last decade, there have been some good films in Marathi cinema.

Growing regional space
Not only Marathi, other regional films too are growing and coming up with some good content. We are the only country where films are being made in so many languages, so I believe every good story teller should be given a platform to showcase his/her talent. And the Bazaar is a place where you find everything!
