Kapur also feels that media's views often hamper quality of some filmmakers.

"Filmmakers often become too media dependent and in doing so, merge their identity with the media view of them, losing the originality of their voice," the 66-year-old tweeted.

"One of the most important thing for an artist to do is to take a long break from success," he added.
