Na­tional award -win­ning film­maker Ma­hesh

Bhatt (above) is known for mak­ing films that strike a chord with the au­di­ence. How­ever, he feels that a film­maker can’t be ex­pected to de­liver only out­stand­ing films through­out his ca­reer.

“I think, Bol­ly­wood has some very pas­sion­ate peo­ple who have in­tense and en­gag­ing ideas,” says Bhatt. “Some make movies to just keep the pot boil­ing, and some weave sto­ries to spread magic through cin­ema. But not ev­ery­one, all through his ca­reer, can cre­ate a film from their in­ner fab­ric of tal­ent. How can a Ma­hesh Bhatt make an Arth (1982) Saransh (1984) and Daddy (1989) again and again?” adds Bhatt, who has also di­rected films such as Sadak (1991), and Hum Hai Rai Pyaar Ke (1993). He adds, “A film­maker has only a lim­ited num­ber of films, which are ev­er­green. Not all movies will en­dure the desert of time.”
