My life as a director!

Direction came easy to me, because I believed in my passion of story telling and also doing continuous events gave me a keen sense of how to organize my scenes and my characters. When I was doing my first documentary, I shot in different environments. For this particular film, “I Shall Dance,” I was so excited that I forgot to wear snow boots and ended up freezing my foot as I wore no socks and just regular flat shoes. Even then I kept a straight face and continued my job! You can see the photos of the main character of the film – Changezi who is warming up his hands before his interview, so you can image how cold it may have been. As a director you are the captain of the ship and hence you will have to keep going no matter what! What matters is the fun you have and the moments you are capturing as a director!
