While it is a known fact by now that Madhur Bhandarkar had refused an offer from Pakistan based producer Sevy Ali for Indo-Pak Film Festival in Karachi (slated to be held this March), what comes as declaration from the National Award winning director is that he has no intentions of even giving this initiative a re-think.

"No ways. A decision has been made and actually I didn't even have to give much time to arrive at it. Apart from the sentiments of the entire Nation, I am personally just not interested in being present at any such events in Pakistan. Sorry, I have been deeply hurt with the terror attack and still haven't got back into a normal state. With such a mindset, I can't be expected to be traveling to Pakistan for an event like this, right", says Madhur Bhandarkar in a slightly agitated tone.

CHECK OUT: Get ready for more films from my production house

Calming down a little, he refuses to consider it for future, at least in the coming months. "For now, it's an indefinite timeline for me", he says, "Till the time things do not settle down between the two countries, I have no interest in visiting Pakistan for any such activity. I can live without it."

Sevy Ali informs though that the festival has been put on hold for now. "With the current situation between the two countries, we are yet to confirm on the ultimate logistics. We are yet to take a final call on the event being held. Yes, I had approached Madhur to showcase his movies in the festival but for the moment, the entire event is being re-looked at."

Meanwhile life has moved on for Madhur who would be beginning to shoot for JAIL in March. Post that, he plans to make a romantic and a musical, hence moving away from the image of being a gritty and realistic film maker.
