“I cannot pick one single film that has stayed with me or inspired me as I’m a huge film buff. During college films like ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ and ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’ to ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ made an impact. Then there were more mature films like ‘Lamhe’, and the ones with strong female protagonists like ‘Astitva’ and ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’, or women-centric one’s like the recent ‘Dangal’. All of these movies, even the popular ones, have small nuances that change how you view life.”
