A Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) alumnus, Aditya Kripalani will be taking his first feature film, Tikli And Laxmi Bomb (TALB) to the Berlin Independent Film Festival and UK Asian Film Festival. The author-film-maker is content and happy with the feedback his film has received so far. “It is always nice to see people react to a film in a certain way. For this film, I see most of the audience try to hide their tears. I feel appreciated because the audience has managed to feel what we have tried to convey on screen,” says Aditya, who has begun the shoot for his second feature, Totta Patakha Item Maal. Just like his first film, the second film will also first make rounds of film festivals before having a commercial release.

TALB has been to various festivals across the globe and a few in India as well. It will see a commercial release too. The makers are negotiating with producers. “The second feature will be written, directed and produced by me, also a little bit of the music is by me. The story is of the different milieus of Delhi society. If TALB was Mumbai as a woman, my second film is Delhi as a woman.”

Aditya’s stories have always had strong women characters. He admits to have been surrounded by strong women while growing and continues to be even now.
