Imtiaz Ali finds cinema way of expressing himself

Mumbai, Sep 16 (IANS) Imtiaz Ali has entertained the masses with his directorials like “Jab We Met” and “Highway” and the director says he expresses himself through cinema.

“Cinema is a way to express myself. I think through cinema I can express my interest or who I am. I consider myself lucky that I work in this field,” Ali told IANS.

Ali described himself as an old-fashioned movie lover.

“I love to watch movies in a theatre. I like the silence in a theatre, and through a movie I take a trip in the story and get absorbed in it. Watching each and every movie is a celebration for me,” he said.

What is his approach to filmmaking?

“I can’t decide that my next project will be of a particular genre… whether it will be a thriller or murder mystery. I don’t believe in making films like that. For me, a story comes naturally then I make it, and then the audience decides what it is. And yes, in my case I hear that most of them are love stories,” said the “Love Aaj Kal” director.

His next project titled “Tamasha” is set to release later this year.
