Editor-turned-director Bela Sehgal is happy that her brother Sanjay Leela Bhansali is finally connecting with the masses by producing films like Rowdy Rathore which has emerged as the first blockbuster of 2012.
Bhansali, who is known for making unusual and different films like Khamoshi: The musical, Black, Saawariya and Guzaarish took a bold step by backing an out-an-out commercial entertainer film.
"I am glad he made a change. It is always good to change...to connect with masses. And Rowdy Rathore is a big change, it was a hit. I am happy for him. After a long time he has connected with his masses," Bela told PTI in an interview.
The kind of films that Sanjay has made, he did not seem as someone who would subscribe to film like Rowdy Rathore. "I think there is nothing wrong in producing these films. It does not mean that he will stop making films the way he wants to. It is not that his passion, sincerity, music, poetry and all that will disappear from his films. He will go ahead and make better films than what he has made till now," Bela said.
"He is such a brave and strong man, despite whatever is written or told about him he comes out with outstanding films. I think people should stop listening to others and not go for his films. But people must decide for themselves.. to go and see his movies and then make their opinion," she said. Bela is all praise for brother Sanjay and his style of film making.
