Whether it’s a love story set against the backdrop of student politics in Haasil, unearthing the drug racket in Charas, the biopic on the athlete- turneddacoit Paan Singh Tomar that won the National Award or the thriller Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster — Tigmanshu Dhulia’s movies rarely stray from reality. “My whole attempt is to make inbetween kind of films that are commercial and aesthetically right,” the writer- director had said earlier in an interview. His last movie Bullet Raja may have bitten the dust, but Tigmanshu is gearing up to make a
comeback with Jai Ramji.
