It is therapeutic to work with kids: Nitesh Tiwari

Wednesday, January 04, 2017

‘Dangal' director Nitesh Tiwari says he finds it a therapeutic experience for him to work with children.

Tiwari made his directorial debut with 'Chillar Party' in 2011, which he had co-directed with Vikas Bahl, while his 2014 release 'Bhootnath Returns' had superstar Amitabh Bachchan and child actor Parth Bhalerao in lead roles.

"I love working with them. I don't work consciously keeping children in mind. I am open to doing a kids film again. It is very therapeutic for me to work with children," said Nitesh.

"But at the same time I am not going to sit and think that I am going to write kids film. If I find something interesting about kids I will do it."

Nitesh says it is the subject that chooses him and not the other way round.

"I don't decide before hand that this is what I want to write. Usually, subjects choose me rather than me choosing a subject," he said.

"I do a film only when I have a subject that is close to my heart. Then I start writing and this takes time. One has to wait for the right people to come on board. So you have to wait for things to fall in place, so projects do take time."

Aamir Khan starrer 'Dangal', which has four new faces in the roles of his on-screen daughters, has already clocked Rs 284 crore at the box office since its release on December 23.

"We did anticipate a good response but the kind of love and warmth we are getting, it's overwhelming," he said.

When quizzed about how he celebrated the film's success, Nitesh said, "We had a party with Aamir and the whole 'Dangal' team in Panchgani. We all were together, remembering the time (of shooting). We had a great time."
