MAHARATHI may have flopped but Paresh Rawal has always stood by the film's director Shivam Nair whom he believes has a 'modern approach towards story telling'.

"Though his AHISTA AHISTA hadn't done well, all those who watched the film had liked it. I too had seen the film along with some of my associates and we liked the way Shivam had treat the subject. Woh ek thehrav leke chalta hai rather than making things frivolous", says Paresh Rawal who had not just conceptualized but also got the entire project together.

Elaborating about Sivam's approach, Paresh says, "He has a modern approach towards storytelling and yet he does it all with complete control. He doesn't believe in 'tikdambaazi' by playing around with camera angles while keeping the story part away. He is a very balanced guy, bahaut hi suljha hua aadmi hai."

Recommendation from Naseeruddin Shah, who plays an integral role in the film, further helped Shivam's cause.

"Naseer had seen his earlier work and when I told him that I was considering Shivam to direct MAHARATHI, he told me to go for it. I was convinced that if someone like Naseer too had faith in a new guy's capabilities then it would be worth it", says Paresh Rawal.

He doesn't regret though that he didn't direct the film himself. "I had lost objectivity after being associated with the play for over 20 years. When compared to theater, it is a different ballgame to direct a film. I may have attempted to do that but didn't have the time for that and hence short listed Shivam."
