Vishal Bhardwaj: I look for creative satisfaction more than anything else!

Bollywoods well known director-producer, Vishal Bhardwaj feels that as a filmmaker he is in pursuit of creative satisfaction as that satisfaction remains with one for a longer period of time compared to success, which is short lived.

The director of ‘Maqbool’ and ‘Omkara’ fame is right now pre-occupied ith his forthcoming production venture ‘Dedh Ishiqya’, a sequel to his 2010 thriller ‘Ishqiya’.

Starring Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit in a never-before seen avatar, the small-town based comedy thriller is coming out Jan 10 and it will also see Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi and Huma Qureshi in pivotal roles.

“I never look for success, I look for creative satisfaction. Success comes and goes but creative satisfaction remains with you. It’s better that I look for that. Box office success means nothing to me,” Bhardwaj, whose last directorial venture was ‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’,” told reporters in a group interview.

When asked why didn’t he direct it himself, he said: “I was more tempted to do ‘Maha Kaminey’ because that film (‘Kaminey) I had directed. This film I wrote, but it belongs more to Abhishek. Had he refused it, we won’t have made the sequel.”
