Film­maker Ash­winy Iyer Ti­wari (right) is happy that peo­ple are still talk­ing about her de­but film Nil Bat­tey San­nata (2015). The film­maker be­lieves the rea­son be­hind her suc­cess is the sim­plic­ity of the story. She hopes to con­tinue mak­ing such kind of films even in fu­ture.

“What started off as work­ing on some­thing (be­ing a di­rec­tor) that I am re­ally pas­sion­ate about, ac­tu­ally earned me lot of love from the au­di­ence,” she says, adding that the film has also earned her pop­u­lar­ity she never ex­pected. “My kinds of sto­ries and my ap­proach are usu­ally sim­ple. You know sim­ple al­ways works. It has been the same since a long time. It goes with­out say­ing how films like Ma­soom (1983), I also feel that this is the era of new and dif­fer­ent sto­ries. I have ac­tors, writ­ers, pro­duc­ers ap­proach­ing me with in­ter­est­ing con­cepts. Even the au­di­ence in this age of dig­i­tal boom is open to dif­fer­ent cin­ema,” says Ash­winy.

About work­ing with ac­tors Swara Bhaskar and Ria Shukla again, she says, “They (fresh breed) know what ex­actly is work­ing now and what will turn out to be a hit among the view­ers.”
