He has made various kinds of cinema — dark comedy, spy thriller, cute romances and complex relationships. His cinematic sensibility is cut from a different cloth, often not tailored for the usual Bollywood design. Yet, he makes the cut with subjects that are spiked with a heady mix of characters. Producer Dinesh Vijan, who has backed films like ‘Being Cyrus’, ‘Finding Fanny’, ‘Love Aaj Kal’, ‘Cocktail’ and ‘Badlapur’, turns director with the upcoming ‘Raabta’, starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon. In a chat with BT, he tells us about his school of cinema, pushing boundaries and how his mistakes made him a better filmmaker. Read on…

If there’s one thing you see unfailingly in practically every single Hindi movie, it’s the park.

Only did you realise there’s more to it than taking a jog or reading the newspaper?

Thanks to Bollywood, we’ve learned it’s many recreational and romantic possibilities.

Bollywood shows you how to use a park!

I mean, you don’t get to go to Beirut every day.
