Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali Monday said Shyam Benegal’s critically acclaimed film ‘Junoon’ inspired him to be a director.
“‘Junoon’ has inspired me to be a filmmaker…It’s a kind of a film which has helped me as a filmmaker. This is one of my favourite films and actors have done a great job,” Ali told reporters at the 16th Mumbai Film Festival (MAMI).
Released in 1978, ‘Junoon’ featured Shashi Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Shabana Azmi and Nafisa Ali among others.
