After garnering critical acclaim with Udaan,director Vikramaditya Motwane says he is nervous about the release of his second film Lootera.
His directorial debut ‘Udaan’ (2010) was selected for the Cannes Film Festival and also won seven Filmfare awards,but it was not immediately successful at the box office.
“Though I do not feel the pressure of a film,I am nervous… scared. I’m very proud of this film. I hope people like it,” Motwane told reporters here at the first look launch of ‘Lootera’.
The film stars Sonakshi Sinha and Ranveer Singh in the lead. The first look of this period drama was launched at a single-screen theatre in south Mumbai.
The film,set in the Bengal of 1950s,is inspired by O Henry’s story ‘The Last Leaf’. “We have been inspired by the book but we haven’t adapted it. We have made changes in it. It is a fresh film,” Motwane said.
“I don’t want to stick to any particular genre. I want to try out different things,” he said.
