If there is one industry in India that holds the highest degree of appeal, it is the film industry. While it usually finds itself deep in some controversy or another, it also attracts countless minds to its world, and not because of the glamour or star power attributed to it, but rather because of the love for stories. This same love brought Ashish Aryan, writer and director of feature film Kanpuriye, to Bombay ten years ago. And in this episode, Nilanjana Dey sits down with him to understand the struggles he faced, both societal and within the industry to reach his current position, and what he feels is essential to make it in ‘Bollywood’, or rather, to fulfill any dream that one might have. They discuss his journey, which can itself be adapted into a movie, and why his writing and films are directed towards representing reality, one that is usually dismissed from the big screens in the Hindi film industry.
