Mumbai, Feb 2 (IANS) Actor Omkar Kapoor, who will soon be seen in web feature film titled “U Me Aur Ghar”, says that working as an assistant director and child actor, helped him to better understand the process of filmmaking.
Having started his career as a child actor in films like “Judwaa”, “Hero No.1” and “Judaai”, and assisted filmmakers like Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Farah Khan, Omkar told IANS: “Exploring both the sides of the camera, whether as an actor or as an assistant director, gives you a better understanding of the craft.
