Have to be extraordinary in Bollywood: 3G director
It's a first for debutant directors Sheershak Anand and Shantanu R Chibber as their film 3G is all set to release on 15th March. But the two are not new to the industry.
They have written for films like Aa Dekhen Zara and Table No. 21. And it's their sheer passion for originality that made them come up with the idea of 3G.
But as Sheershak Anand puts it, that's not enough to survive in Bollywood. "There is a lot of competition in the industry as many new directors are surfacing. But you can't just be good. You have to be extraordinary. We have been in the industry for eight years and we were lucky to get our first break in three years. We didn't assist or work with anyone and our debut is also with an established production house. I guess we are talented and very lucky", says the director.
Further commenting on the film's success at the box office and the 100 crore club, Sheershak adds, "We don't have a big star in the film and our script is the hero. You have to be practical and smart in the industry. So while critical acclaim is important, we would also want to belong to the 100 crore club. We are happy if we even make 25 crores because it's not easy. There is a lot of struggle".
