There were rumors, Shah Rukh and Sircar are working together for their next project. He denied it and said:
“No. This is wrong news. I am not aware of it at all. I have no clue. I’m just getting into a film with Varun. That’s already been announced.”
He is presently in the Australian City attending the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne. His film, Pink won the award for Best Film in this festival. Sircar is also famous for directing Madras Cafe. On winning this award, he said:
“It’s a joy and a proud moment for the team, especially because we have got an acknowledgment from the Australian jury. The film has resonated with them as well. That gives a high. It shows that we are on the right path.”
Sircar has worked with various actors such as Amitabh Bachchan, John Abraham, and Ayushmann Khurrana. He explained his criteria for selecting the cast by saying:
“I don’t have actors in mind, but definitely I have the characters in mind while writing the script because we are developing the character, then we start working on it…the nuances of the character and then that decides who the actor is going to be. Sometimes, it is also because of the economic pressure.”
In addition to this, he said:
“The kind of films that I make…I try to keep the budgets as low as possible.”
Even with his low budget films, he manages to grab the eyeballs of the audience. Regarding this he said:
“I am just lucky that they (his films) have all worked. I never thought that my films… like on constipation would work. I thought they were very average stories, but very important. I thought somehow I would just manage. I thank the audience for giving so much of love to my films.”
Sircar is ready to steal the hearts of the audience with his next project which is a love story. Unlike most filmmakers, he never locked horns with the Central Board of Film Certification. He also commented on the change of chief of CBFC from Pahlaj Nihalani to Prasoon Joshi:
“I think Prasoon Joshi is absolutely eligible. He has been a part of the mainstream film industry. He knows exactly…he himself is a creative person. So, I think he will understand much deeper what we filmmakers want and what people should watch. It’s a great move that Prasoon Joshi has come on board.”
Consequently, he has no clue about the film with Shah Rukh. Also, Shah Rukh cannot take any further dates without finishing his current project with Aanand L Rai.
