The director of UDAAN and LOOTERA has now taken the onus of presenting a film he wholeheartedly loves and wants everyone to see. Catch Vikramaditya Motwane in this candid chat as he speaks about KATIYABAAZ and why it’s completely alright to have a star driven industry.
How did you get involved with KATIYABAAZ?
I saw it at a screening and really liked it. I asked (one of) the directors if I could do anything for the film. He said yes and that’s how it started.
Was the film ready when you saw it?
The film was already ready when I saw it. I had no input in the making of the film or the edit. It won an Award at the Mumbai Film Festival, it won National Awards and it has won awards all over the place. The film needs to be seen by a nice wide audience.
And how do you make sure a nice wide audience watches this film?
We can’t guarantee that. All we can do is say that Phantom is presenting the film. We really believe in the film, we really love the film and making people aware that the film is actually out there. We hope that they come and see the film and love it as much as we at Phantom did. That’s the best we can do. You can’t force people at gunpoint to come and watch the film.
