Adil to direct Assamese film, but doesn’t like to be called ‘director’
Versatile and critically acclaimed actor Adil Hussain is set to wield the megaphone with an Assamese film, about a man and elephant. But he doesn’t like to be called a director.
‘I’m thinking of making an Assamese film yes, I found a script writer. Direction is not the right word...I am collaborating with the cinematographers and other members of the team. The word ‘director’ carries so much of arrogance, so I don’t feel like using it ...its similar to dictator,’ Adil told IANS. The film is inspired by a story that the actor read 20 years ago.
‘It stayed with me. I thought let’s go ahead with...it (the film) needs lots of preparations and money. We luckily have the money in place, the script needs a lot of time’ he said, adding that the movie will narrate a ‘sensitive story about an elephant and a man’.
