National Award winning filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia says he still has to struggle even after proving his talent as a storyteller.

“Some filmmakers are lucky, and who do not have to struggle once a film gets appreciation. And then there are those who are destined to struggle all the way in spite of proving their potential as a storyteller. I am one of them, now what to do?” Dhulia told IANS.

He even said it was all about an individual’s approach in the industry. If one is not hanging around with a group of people and is not a part of their inner circle, and is very individualistic by nature, it becomes tougher. He believes that the film’s watchability factor depends on the reviews of the film and that if critics are “responsible” with their views, it affects the films box office, footfalls etc.

His next film, Milan Talkies, is set to release on March 15. It revolves around a struggling filmmaker who makes spoofs of iconic Bollywood films and earns money from them. The film is set in Malegaon, where a parallel film industry flourished some years ago.

Tigmanshu Dhulia is not only an acclaimed director. His acting skills have also been appreciated in films such as Gangs of Wasseypur, Rangbaaz, Zero, Shahid and Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster. He believes in doing whatever he sets his heart to- with utmost sincerity.

Milan Talkies stars Ali Fazal, Ashutosh Rana, Sanjay Mishra and debutante Shraddha Srinath.
