Vishal Bhardwaj: I want to stop producing films because I want to conserve that energy for myself as director

The Kaminey filmmaker  has said he would produce only those films which he could direct and not those of others

“I want to stop producing films because I want to conserve that energy for myself as director. I am not interested in producing films. I did it for Abhishek Chaubey (director of Dedh Ishqiya) as he is like my brother. I would produce only those films that I direct,” Vishal Bhardwaj said.

He made his debut as filmmaker with children’s film Makdee (2002) which won critical acclaim. He then made Maqbool (2003), Omkara (2006), and others. Among the films which he did not direct but produced were No Smoking (2007), Ishqiya (2010), Ek Thi Daayan” (2013), and Dedh Ishqiya (2014) among others.

“I am producing a film for Meghna Gulzar as she is like my sister… I am producing it with my heart and soul. But as far as the profession and the business associated with it is concerned, I don’t want to do it,” Vishal said.

On director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, known for making emotional dramas, exploring the genre of potboilers by producing them, Vishal said he did only those movies in which he believed in. “I won’t own films that I don’t believe in, be it producing or directing. I cannot own something which I cannot believe. I don’t like it personally. I think Sanjay would have loved ‘Rowdy Rathore’ that is why he would have produced the film,” he said.
