When asked about it she says, “I cannot imagine Sholay without him. The film is a director’s vision and adds that extra bit to it. A film cannot be successful without the director’s contribution.

If others could manage to do everything, why would producers need directors? I just want to know what people think about it and what is their reaction to the film. If I had my way, I would do a poll to see the positioning of the director and what is the reaction of the people.

I know what people are saying, but just to confirm I would do the poll. The director has some rights over the film.”
