'Freedom to tell stories important, money comes later'

Saturday, May 05, 2018

Hansal Mehta's films might be rich in content but the director says he gets paid modestly because for him "money comes after freedom to tell stories". Mehta, who started his career with popular TV cookery show "Khana Khazana", is known for critically-acclaimed films.

"I am fortunate that producers have shown faith in my projects. But I don't get crazy sums of money. I make enough to manage, to make a living. What is too less and what is too much? There is no limit to that. I am happy with what I get but I would like a little more. It will happen eventually," he told PTI. Mehta believes a person's "market value" is determined by a "variety of factors".

Mehta says he tries to draw references for his work on celluloid from his daily life. "My stories are grounded because they are born from my day-to-day experiences. I connect to my own experiences. The world that I depict is the world that I live in. There is little bit of empathy. The detailing comes from me being part of that world. My films travel across the world, are seen and reviewed by international audiences. I am full of gratitude for that." The director's latest film "Omerta", about dreaded terrorist Omar Sheikh, released yesterday.
