Veteran filmmaker Shekhar Kapur took to Twitter to reveal the best film he has ever made and surprisingly, it is not the classic entertainer, Mr. India. Kapur considers his 1994 film Bandit Queen his best work till date. 

"The best film I have ever made. Bandit Queen. Please also give credit to the editor Renu Saluja and Cinematographer Ashok Mehta," Kapur tweeted. 

"They both taught me so much about cinema. Both are not with us any more. I honestly wish they were. I miss them sorely," he added. 

Further, replying to a comment, he wrote, ''I went purely and completely on instinct. In #BanditQueen I questioned every burden of masculinity I carried on my shoulders. So it was an exploration of myself as a man as much as it was about Phoolan Devi''.

Bandit Queen, based on the life of Phoolan Devi, released in 1994 and featured Seema Biswas in the title role. Kapur gained international recognition with Bandit Queen, which won the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Hindi. He is also known for Mr. India, Masoom and historical biopics on Queen Elizabeth - Elizabeth and Elizabeth: The Golden Age.
