The emerging filmmakers of India is one interesting session that took place at the International Film Festival of India, the other day. Aditya Dhar, the director of Uri- The Surgical Strike and another director Manu Ashokan took part in the event and have shared their thoughts on different things.
At the conversation, Aditya Dhar says, "People enjoy content nowadays. They don't care much for the spectacle aspect of films. Filmmakers have to create more balanced films - commercial as well as artistic films. That's what people want. Most of the movies by new directors, that have come out this year, have worked really well. This is the best time in the industry, in a long long time, where newcomers have a great opportunity."
“Content is the key. People are really appreciating the content. If the content is good, the movie will work, irrespective of the cast” says Manu Ashokan at the event.
Much before this, Aditya shared his happiness of being a part of the event. He said, "The fact that we are celebrating the 50th International Film Festival and my first debut film getting screened over here is a huge honor. I really thank the ministry of ministry broadcasting and also thank the jury members and others for actually considering my film Uri for the screening here."
