What advice you’d like to give to someone who is interested/newbee in filmmaking?
If you have an idea in your mind, just go and execute it. Don’t let anybody tell you why you can’t make it. Use ‘Jod,Tod,Mod aur Jugaad’ philosophy to make your film.
Jod – add enthusiastic people.
Tod – unnecessary part of the script.
Mod – modify script to minimize requirements.
Jugaad – Do jugaad for the finalised requirements.
