I look for creative satisfaction, not success: Vishal Bhardwaj
Mumbai: Vishal Bhardwaj says that as a filmmaker he is in pursuit of creative satisfaction as it remains with one for a longer time compared to success, which is short-lived.
The director of films like 'Maqbool' and 'Omkara' is right now occupied with his forthcoming production venture 'Dedh Ishiqya', a sequel to his 2010 thriller 'Ishqiya'.
Starring Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit in a never-before seen avatar, the small-town based comedy thriller is coming out on January 10 and it will also see Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi and Huma Qureshi in pivotal roles.
"I never look for success, I look for creative satisfaction. Success comes and goes but creative satisfaction remains with you. It's better that I look for that. Box office success means nothing to me," Bhardwaj, whose last directorial venture was 'Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola', told reporters in a group interview.
For 'Dedh Ishqiya', Bhardwaj, who has co-scripted the film, once again teamed up with 'Ishqiya' director Abhishek Chaubey.
When asked why didn't he direct it himself, he said: "I was more tempted to do 'Maha Kaminey' because that film ('Kaminey') I had directed. This film I wrote, but it belongs more to Abhishek. Had he refused it, we won't have made the sequel."
