Tigmanshu Dhulia: Big Budget Movies Need Stars

Talking about making movies in Bollywood and his upcoming film Bullett Raja, the 46 year old director Tigmanshu Dhulia says When you are working on a high budget film, the pressure requires you to have an actor, who can pull that off at the box office. And I think only Saif Ali Khan can justify that kind of budget. So, we had to get a star. Luckily, Saif was interested in this space.”

The National Award winning director who has made serious movies like Paan Singh Tomar, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, Haasil, Charas, etc has opted to make a masala entertainer like Bullet Raja now. Talking about it, “I was apprehensive initially if I would be able to pull it off. If I roped in somebody who had already done a film like this it would have not been a challenge,” he said.

The movie which hits screens on November 29th, will star Saif Ali Khan and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead roles and will also see Jimmy Shergill, Chunky Pandey, Ravi Kishan, Gulshan Grover and Vidyut Jamwal in supporting roles.
