‘None of my films has been easy to shoot’

HT City - - Entertainment - IANS

Film­maker San­jay Leela Bhansali has wrapped up the shoot for Pad­ma­vati, which has been mired in con­tro­versy right from its con­cep­tion to pre-re­lease ac­tiv­ity. But the film­maker says he doesn’t think about neg­a­tive forces.

“None of my films has been easy to shoot. From the time I di­rected my first film, I’ve fought against all odds. My first film was de­clared a flop on the first day of re­lease and there were re­ports of en­raged view­ers break­ing their seats in­side the the­atre. I won­dered what I had done to in­cur their wrath,” Bhansali says.

“I don’t think of the strug­gle, the suf­fer­ing and the strife as neg­a­tive forces. They are my in­cen­tives to make the films that I want to make. If I had to make a stress-free film, I’d be re­ally wor­ried,” added the film­maker, known for movies like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Black, and Goliyon Ki Raasleela RamLeela.
