Actor, writer and director Vijay Maurya is happy that cinema viewing is changing for good. “We have to supply what audience demands for at the end of the day it is all about economics and business. Audience is more interested in stories like Bob Biswas, a prime example of character driven content,” says Maurya, who also won the best original screenplay award at the National Film Awards for Chillar Party.
Maurya is in Lucknow for the shoot of Rangbaaz-2.
“Earlier, most of the films had a set formula. They had romance, songs, villain and fight at end. But due to exposure to international cinema as well as regional cinema, the gap between commercial and art films is vanishing. The fine lines that differentiated them are becoming blurred. This is a good sign for cinema as we needed a middle path for festival films and commercially viable films,” says the Gully Boy actor.
