Film­maker Mad­hur Bhan­darkar (right) has cre­ated his own niche au­di­ence by di­rect­ing women-cen­tric films, and he feels that a lot of is­sues in the so­ci­ety can be shown from the eyes of a woman.

“There are cases and sub­jects that can be told from a woman’s point of view,” says Bhan­darkar, who has di­rected films such as Page 3 (2005), Fash­ion (2008) and Hero­ine (2012).

“Ev­ery film­maker de­vel­ops his own style of mak­ing cin­ema. Just as a pain­ter makes his paint­ing, as a cre­ative film­maker, I show dif­fer­ent shades of the world,” he adds.

Bhan­darkar, who has a jour­nal­ist’s streak, cred­its this for mak­ing hard-hit­ting cin­ema and wants to tell au­di­ences about the re­al­ity of life through films. “I have a jour­nal­ist streak. Peo­ple write ar­ti­cles or books, I make films. This is my in­ter­pre­ta­tion of telling what hap­pens around me,” he says.

De­spite the ups and downs in his ca­reer, the film­maker doesn’t let the dif­fer­ent phases bother him. “I never give into the pres­sure or how much money my films have made. I am com­fort­able in my zone,” he says.
