Favorite Quotes:

"Writing like any other creative field requires discipline. Script is not something a machine can generate. It is something you have to sit, spend time and write. If you regularly put some amount of time for writing you can make simple ideas into a good film"

"There are going to be a lot of sacrifices. You can’t get everything in life. If you want one thing you have to let go of something"

"Film is not a one man show. It’s a team activity. You need to have a great team to make a great film"
