Filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia, who is riding high on the success of Paan Singh Tomar, feels independent filmmaking can help tackle socially relevant issues in a big way.
"I think independent filmmaking is the only way out in this country. There are so many issues that can be tackled through independent filmmaking and not by studio films," Dhulia said at the launch of Delhi International Film Festival on Tuesday.
Part of the new wave of cinema, he is known for making films like Charas, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster and Paan Singh Tomar.
"It is a good time for Indian film industry. Cinema is changing now. Though it showed changes in early 2000, but over 10-12 years cinema has matured. Lot of youngsters are taking up filmmaking. There are young technicians, earlier it was not the case. It has become a popular profession," said Dhulia.
