Tigmanshu Dhulia Says Filmmaking Is Cheating

Indian cinema is undoubtedly going through a good patch right now where movies such as Kahaani and Vicky Donor are becoming box office super hits. Nonetheless, these movies aren’t enough to keep the industry going and Tigmanshu Dhulia, the filmmaker, feels that change is still far away. He feels that the ratio of hit films to flops is still very low.

Dhulia said that cinema could be experimented with but it wasn’t as easy as writing poetry since there was a lot of money involved and many reputations at stake.


He also said that he wasn’t a very indulgent director and all his movies were audience friendly. The audience never had a problem understanding his movies.

His first few movies Charas, Haasil & Shagird didn’t do too well at the box office but he did make a name for himself with his movies Paan Singh Tomar & Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster.
