Anurag Basu: I belong to TV!

The talented Barfi filmmaker, who started his direction career with the 1996 hit daily soap Tara, says that making movies is easier than TV shows

Anurag Basu, who directed TV shows like Star Bestsellers and Koshish… Ek Aashaa before making his Bollwyood debut with Saaya (2003) starring John Abraham and Tara Sharma said that he first belongs to TV. “I don’t feel that films are superior to television. I don’t know why people say this? I do films, but trust me, television is much more difficult than making films,” said Basu at the 12th Indian Telly Awards. “I belong to TV. I was born here as a director. Sometimes I get jealous that there were no award functions like this in our time,” he further adds.

Anurag, who was bestowed with the Gary Binder Award for Directorial Excellence at ITA, rues when he used to work in the television industry as a director and writer, there were no such awards. “We did so much hard work in TV and never got an award,” he said.

His last release was the Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra starrer Barfi!, which was also India’s official entry to the Oscars 2012. Currently, Basu is busy co-judging the children’s talent show, India’s Best Dramebaaz on Zee TV along with actors Sonali Bendre and Vivek Oberoi.
