Which of the prizes you have won means the most to you and why?
What's been the most surprising thing you have learnt during your time as a director?
A woman called in to All India Radio. She was visually challenged, and she said that The Lunchbox was her favourite movie in years. She went 3 times with her husband to listen to the voiceovers and experience them with him - even though she couldn't see the film, she felt it. I really treasure that voice on the radio, I wish I had recorded it, but I was in the car at the time.
î ˘e emotional stamina it takes to get through a shoot. It is a lot of joy and pain together. What would your advice be to a young and enthusiastic filmmaker with a good film plan? î ˘ere will be many nos along the road, but all you need is one yes.
What are you working on right now? Making up for lost time with my baby girl, and trying to get into a writing schedule. I am working on a love story of sorts that is set in India.
