Audiences’ appreciation more fulfilling than awards: Kiran Rao

Filmmaker Kiran Rao, who released Anand Gandhi’s highly acclaimed Ship of Theseus in association with UTV Motion Pictures, is overwhelmed with the film’s National Award win. But she also feels that for the makers, the best reward is acceptance by the audience.
The makers of  Ship of Theseus and Shahid threw a success party here Tuesday to celebrate the National Award win of both films.
‘All filmmakers are greedy. We (filmmakers) want everything. We want box office success, critical acclaim, awards and everything else.’
‘But I think when the audience likes a film, that appreciation is far more fulfilling, far more satisfying than any award, Kiran said here on Tuesday at the party.
‘I think both these films - Ship of Theseus and Shahid - have done that. They have touched the people. That’s the biggest reward you can get as a filmmaker,’  she added.
