Filmmaker Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s debut movie Nil Battey Sannata received appreciation for it’s simplistic approach.

Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari is happy that people are still talking about her debut film Nil Battey Sannata (2015). The filmmaker believes the reason behind her success is the simplicity of the story. She hopes to continue making such kind of films even in future.

“What started off as working on something I am really passionate about (being a director), actually earned me lots of love from the audience. It feels good when I hear people still taking about the film,” she smiles adding that the film has also earned her popularity she never expected.

“Our intention of making a film is to tell a story. And my kinds of stories and my approach are usually simple. You know simple always works. It has been the same since a long time. It goes without saying how films like Masoom, Golmaal or films by Hrishikesh Mukherjee have always been loved by cine goers. I also feel that this is the era of new and different stories. The industry is ready to try something new. I have actors, writers, producers approaching me with interesting concepts. Even the audience in this age of digital boom is open to different cinema. That is the change I am talking about,” says Ashwiny.

About working with actors Swara Bhaskar and Ria Shukla again, the filmmaker says, “Of course, I love Swara and Ria. They are amazing actors.. Working with Ria was also special. She is a talented girl, an amazing actor. They (fresh breed) know what exactly is working now and what will turn out to be a hit among the viewers. ”
