Fimmaker Nitesh Tiwari attended Jio MAMI film mela on Saturday in Mumbai. While interacting with media, Tiwari stated that death of legendary filmmaker Kundan Shah’s death is huge loss for the industry.
Kundan Shah passed away after a heart-attack at his Mumbai residence on Saturday at the age of 69. He was a master of social satire, best reflected in two TV serials: Nukkad (1986) and Wagle Ki Duniya (1988), Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa (1994) and Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro (1983), remembering Shah, Nitesh Tiwari said, “It’s a huge loss for the industry. I have worked with Kundan sir. I have shot some ad films with him. I had really amazing working experience with him. He never made me realize that he is such a big director. He was very humble and approached his work with modesty. I have had very few personal interactions with him but personally, it’s very huge loss for me”
Nitesh Tiwari delivered blockbuster ‘Dangal’ along with Aamir Khan in 2016, when asked about his future project, Nitesh said, “It’s a very difficult to figure out because it’s very long process. I am writing a script for my next film and once I complete my script, I will start casting for the film.”
Talking about MAMI film festival, Nitesh said, “I have great memories attached to MAMI film festival. When I used to be a junior writer, I often used to watch films at MAMI. In fact at one point of time, in four days, I have watched 17 films at MAMI and that has been my record. I feel you don’t really get platform like this to showcase a film”
“It will be very different platform for me. At this event, I will share my personal experiences of my film set and most importantly, I am very eager to know how other filmmakers also function on their film set so it’s going to be knowledge giving and knowledge gaining exercise for me”.
