Mumbai, July 19 (IANS) Filmmaker Nishikant Kamat considers himself a part of a “rare breed of directors” who manage to draw a balance between parallel cinema and commercial projects.
Known for helming movies like “Mumbai Meri Jaan”, “Drishyam”, “Dombivali Fast” and “Force”, Kamat has been able to explore different genres on the celluloid. He feels fortunate.
Asked how difficult it is to find producers to make his kind of cinema, Kamat told IANS: “Fortunately, I always have people ready to produce my films. It’s always that I take time to start my film. Producers also know that I am very choosy with my films.”
“I do parallel cinema and commercial cinema and I get away with that. I am one of those rare breed of directors and I have been lucky,” he added.
His next directorial to hit the screens is Irrfan Khan starrer “Madaari”.
Talking about collaborating with Irffan yet again post “Mumbai Meri Jaan”, he said: “Its more of a friendship than anything else, but when it comes to cinema, we both are very serious and very choosy with the kind of films we do. It takes time for both of us to like a script and to start working.”
The movie, presented by Miraj Entertainment and Bharat Shah in association with EaseMyTrip.com, will release on Friday.
