Q

Tell us about Tilottama. What inspired you to make this film?

A

Tilottama means beautiful. This is a beautiful story of few beautiful characters. Our city, our people have inspired me to write the story. I wrote this story because whenever people feel lonely, frustrated, upset or puzzled, they will get positivity and winning energy from this story.

Q

How is this film different from your previous projects?

A

First time in a single film , I'm sharing four different stories with the audiences. This is something new for me.

Life in a Metro is one of my favourite films, that's why I tried something on the same lines with a different concept.

Q

What in this, you feel, will attract the audiences?

A

Simplicity and positivity. It's a very simple and pure story. Tilottama is soulful. Everyone from ages 8 to 80 can watch this movie.

Q

How do you cast your actors in general?

A

First, I write the story. Then according to my vision and experience, I cast my actors. But I'm lucky too that they too choose me as their director.

Q

What is the kind of film that you generally like to watch?

A

Any good film. I always learn from each and every movie I watch. I always get creative ideas, technical knowledge after watching a movie or series.

Q

Upcoming projects in the pipeline.

A

After Tilottama, I have another release, Hridaypur in the pipeline that features Saurav Das, Rajatava Dutta, Darshana Banik, Arna Mukhopadhyay and Aishwarya Sen. Pre-production is also going for my next which is yet untitled.
