Film direction is very difficult: Ratna Pathak Shah
Her husband Naseeruddin Shah is a well-known theatre director and now Ratna Pathak Shah has also stepped in his shoes
Naturally, we couldn’t help asking Ratna if she will step into film-direction as well, just like Naseer did. “I don’t think I will be able to do that,” Ratna told CS, “Film direction is very difficult. And I really think it’s a young person’s art as it requires that kind of energy.
Also, you have to think about the whole. In theatre, we wait for things to slowly unfold, to reveal, to emerge. If one tries to do that in a film, what kind of a budget would I need!” she laughs.
