Nishikant Kamat’s next a romantic film
Filmmaker Nishikant Kamat (left), whose latest film, Madaari — which is about a common man’s plight in the country — just hit theatres, will now work on a romantic movie.
“I want to reinvent myself, so I am taking break for six months. I have not even taken a Sunday off in the last few years, so I need to slow down. So, right now it’s a sabbatical for me and then I will start with a romantic film,” he says.
As a director, Kamat has worked on films like Dombivali Fast (2005), Mumbai Meri Jaan (2008), Force (2011) and Drishyam (2015).
Asked why all his films have been from a male’s point of view, he said: “During my theatre days, I have done all women-centric themes. I will make a women-centric film in future because I know this is one question even I have asked myself. Probably I didn’t get the right script... It was such an honour to work with Tabu in Drishyam, but you need a substantial role for an actor of her calibre.”
