Imtiaz Ali is one of the finest directors in the fame of Bollywood industry, and is known for showing various exotic locations and travel as a crucial part of his narration.
“It is no less difficult to shoot a film abroad. Actually everything depends on how bureaucratic the country or the place is. For instance, central Europe is very film friendly and they welcome film directors for shooting,” he said during a session at NFDC Film Bazaar here.
“On the other hand, it is very difficult to shoot in London. As a director, you do not feel free while shooting the scene,” the award winning filmmaker added.
“In our country, the threat could be something different. Maybe you are shooting in a rural area and a group of drunk people bother the shooting unit! So there are challenges of different types,” he added.
