Director Tigmanshu Dhulia, who is basking in the success of Paan Singh Tomar, is now gearing up for next directorial venture. Dhulia's films are high on socio-political elements and his new movie will not be an exception to it. Titled Milan Talkies, the film is his first love story that explore the complexities of a small town romance.
Talking to PTI, Tigmanshu Dhulia said, "I am planning to direct Milan Talkies. The crux of the story is that though the communication has become easy thanks to mobile phones and everything, it is still very difficult to fall in love in small towns. I will continue to base my stories in small towns till they remain small. So few of them are left now. Where is the conflict in love in a big city like Mumbai? Love is still difficult for those living in small cities."
Tigmanshu Dhulia, who is also planning a sequel to "Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster" with Irrfan, says he is naturally attracted to subjects which relate to society. "I come from Allahabad where people are politically more conscious. I try to make films that are part of the society, because I want people to relate with my stories."
However, his debut film Haasil revolved around the student politics in Allahabad and Sahib, Biwi Aur Gangster dealt with the decay in the system through a modern take on Guru Dutt's classic Saheb Biwi aur Ghulam. His most recent release Paan Singh Tomar is about the tragic transformation of an award-winning athlete into a notorious dacoit.
