This interview with Oscar winning filmmaker Danis Tanovic opens with a dry, witty remark, “Have you heard of crazy nights in Patiala?” Answers it himself, saying, “No you have not. Because there are none.”
Tanovic then speaks to Pinkvilla about 14 hour shoots, notes for the next day’s preparation, and the hard work that is inherent to any filmmaking. The man whose heartfelt film “No Man’s Land” defeated “Lagaan” at the Oscars has quietly made a moving tale of a Pakistani whistle-blower, arguing against medical malpractice through infant formula of international pharma giants.
