We, as a country, are so irrevocably adamant, where notions of belongingness and cultural well-being are considered, that anything that even minutely tries to disrupt or question our stagnated thought process – we begin to demean that entity.

Despite the fact that his films were being lauded by the world, they weren’t selling, or even releasing in India. However, his love for film making never wavered. He didn’t play the blame game, he didn’t become a part of the, what he calls the ‘intellectual terrorists’ community.
