Sriram Raghavan, who has made films like Johnny Gaddaar, Ek Hasina Thi, Agent Vinod and Badlapur, told IANS: "I should make more films to find my signature I guess... I make such less number of films, and that too (with a) gap of years, that every time I gear up to direct a film, it feels like a debut film."

the director further continued: "Really, I am not joking. I asked my assistant director, 'Should I say roll sound, camera and action or roll camera, sound and action."

"As a filmmaker, I want to bring some value, some thought in the mind of my audience. When I embark on the journey of storytelling, I am an explorer," Sriram Raghavan further added.

Diana Penty showed off her fashionable side by opting for blue bell-bottom denim, paired with a basic black top and a golden jacket.
Raghavan does not take the pressure of box office numbers. Considering that the representation of female characters is changing in the Indian film industry, does he keep it in mind as a filmmaker to play a catalyst in the conversation around women empowerment?

Raghavan went on saying: "I do not think that when I write a female character, I intend to reflect my thoughts on gender equality, but I always make sure that my female character is not decorative, they are human, they are good, bad, complex and close to reality. My women characters should not exist only to play the 'love interest' of a male character."

"My idea is to write a story where every character is well etched out, irrespective of their gender. Because they all are human beings and stories are on the situation and human mind," director Raghavan concluded talking about his films.
