‘Dangal’ Director Nitesh Tiwari Keen To Explore Horror Genre
Though Nitesh Tiwari has directed films like Bhoothnath Returns and was a co-director of Chillar Party, but it was last year’s critically acclaimed film ‘Dangal’ that brought him in public’s eyes. ‘Dangal’ which was a biographical sports drama film was last year’s highest grosser film. And now the director has said that he wants to explore the horror genre.
"I have one style of writing that is slice of life, closer to life, drama, humour and emotions this is what I usually write. There is lot of potential in this (genre) to explore as story. But I will try and write a horror story also one day, I want to do it," Nitesh said.
He added, "I would want to make a horror film. Though I would love to make all kinds of films. But while making a film I can only make certain kind of films, I can't make a sci-fi." Nitesh’s next film is 'Bareilly Ki Barfi' for which he has co-written the script. The movie is directed by his wife Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and stars Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Sanon in lead roles.
Showering praise on his wife, who made her directorial debut with 'Nil Battey Sannata', Nitesh said that he was moved after watching the film. He said that both of them are the harshest critics of each other.
