Mumbai, Sep 14 (IANS) “Ra.One” and “Gulaab Gang” director Anubhav Sinha says “conviction” and “perseverance” are the virtues to make path-breaking movies.
At a masterclass at Subhash Ghai’s Whistling Woods International film institute, Sinha said: “Conviction and perseverance are the two creative virtues in filmmaking. First is the belief in your work, and second is doing something despite difficulties.
“If one does that regardless of difficulties, then path-breaking movies can be made.”
He says whenever he meets “ace directors as well as colleagues who are doing good movies”, it is like a celebration of cinema.
On the work front, Sinha will begin shooting his next project “Hunkaar”, an action drama thriller set in the heart of Benaras. The commercial potboiler, starring Riteish Deshmukh and Abhay Deol in lead roles will be shot extensively in various locations of Benaras and Lucknow for over three months.
The female lead for the project is yet to be finalised.
