After being the cinematographer for several films like ‘Blue’, ‘English Vinglish’, ‘Boss’, ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’ and the upcoming ‘Tevar’, Laxman Utekar has added another feather to his cap by turning director with the Marathi film, Tapaal.
Talking about his journey of becoming a director, he says, "I used to get a lot of offers to shoot Marathi films, but I didn’t want to shoot them. I always felt that if I shoot a Marathi film, it will also be directed by me. I didn’t want to shoot for somebody else because I was already shooting for people in Hindi films."
Ask him whether he always wanted to become a director and he says, "I always wanted to make a film but I wasn’t in a hurry. When I was shooting for others, I couldn’t narrate my own experiences. So to express the same I took up direction." Produced by Maitreya Mass Media and distributed by Pickle Entertainment, starring the likes of Milind Gunaji, Nandu Madhav, Veena Jamkar, Urmila Kanetkar and introducing Rohit Utekar, ‘Tapaal’ is all set to release on 26th September 2014.
