I want to tell my stories simply: ‘Thai Massage’ director  Imtiaz Ali

Director Imtiaz Ali tells Trisha Mukherjee about his upcoming theatrical release Thai Massage, the first film he’s bankrolled but not directed, exploring OTT, and why he wants to hone his craft further

I started a production house ––Window Seat Films––a couple of years ago, with the realisation that, at best, I can direct one film in two years. There are, however, so many stories I want to tell–– stories that are mine, and others that are not.

I thought I would exhaust myself and the day I die, I may have this regret that there were so many things I wanted to do, but couldn’t. As a result of the production house, I can still contribute to the stories I have to tell. Also, I enjoy collaborating with creative minds, which, as a director, you sometimes don’t get to do because other writers and directors don’t come and work with a writer-director.
