‘Junoon inspired me to be filmmaker’

Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali Monday said Shyam Benegal's critically acclaimed film Junoon inspired him to be a director.

‘Junoon has inspired me to be a filmmaker...It's a kind of a film which has helped me as a filmmaker. This is one of my favourite films and actors have done a great job,’ Ali told reporters at the 16th
Mumbai Film Festival (MAMI).

Released in 1978, Junoon featured Shashi Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Shabana Azmi and Nafisa Ali among others. The MAMI film festival will end Tuesday.
