Resul Pookutty stepping into filmmaking

Oscar-winner Resul Pookutty says he now wants to step into direction and production after a successful career as a sound designer.

“I am taking to the next level of creativity now... I am considering producing and directing movies. That’s on my mind. I can’t disclose the details but it will happen soon,” Pookutty told PTI.

The 43-year-old sound editor, meanwhile, has his plate full with films like, Nanak Shah Fakir, Margarita, with a Straw, Muzaffar Ali’s period drama Jaanisar and a Hollywood movie Promise Dad.

Pookutty said working on Margarita With A Straw which is about the discrimination against differently-abled people, was an emotionally stressful journey.

“This film is like a wake up call because we don’t care about the needs of the disabled people, their love, affection and aspirations, we don’t even think about that, we don’t consider them as a part of us,” he said.

 Pookutty is excited about collaborating with Ali on Jaanisar and feels the Umrao Jaan director will bring back the lost essence of poetry.
