Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt doesn't want to be called a 'master' because he feels that someone's outlook should not be confined to a limited world. Known for films with unique plots like Saraansh, Zakhm, Arth, Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke among others, Bhatt has explored a range of subjects.
In a master class with director Hansal Mehta, Bhatt shared his unfiltered opinion on filmmaking.
"I don't want to be in a position where someone calls me a master. Not out of some bogus humility, but because I don't want people to confine their outlook, their creative ideas to a limited world. Whatever I experienced was true to my life, it might not be of importance to another person since there is no compass, no map to learn filmmaking.
"Every film is a separate project, a different river that you need to learn to navigate afresh. Even a director who has previously created a film of critical/commercial acclaim might not receive the same laurels for his next movie," he said in a statement.
