He adds, “ We need to change audiences and what they want if we want to see different kind of programming.” So are we going to see him back on tv anytime soon? “To be honest, I do keep thinking what new should I do for TV. And whenever I feel there is anything new, I’ll definitely come back,” Basu says.
Having helmed hit films like Barfi!, Gangster, and Murder, Basu will be seen in the judge’s chair for the first time for India’s Best Dramebaaz — an upcoming the talent hunt show on Zee TV for children in the age range of 5-12 years. “I said yes to this one because the format is new” he says.
