Dialogues and Screenplay writer Vibhu Puri of ‘Guzaarish’ and ‘Saawariya’ fame says that Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s directorials were always a lil ahead of their times.
“I come from a school where we are not money spinners. I want to be called an artist. I do not want to be called a money-making machine. As an artist, both ‘Saawariya’ and ‘Guzaarish’ were very beautifully crafted films,” Puri told.
“I have not seen such richness of emotions in a film. What Sanjay sir has created is amazing. I think ‘Saawariya’ and ‘Guzaarish’ were ahead of their times,” he added.
Vibhu has even assisted Bhansali in movies and considers the latter as his guru or idol!
“Sanjay sir is my guru. Even today, I call him on each Guru Purnima. I have learnt a lot from him,” he said.
Vibhu Puri is currently working on his debut directorial, which will feature Ayushmann Khurrana.
