Won't direct till I get story with meaningful issue, says Subhash Ghai

Ghai says he is happy producing films, and being in the educational space with Whistling Woods International.


Filmmaker Subhash Ghai says he will not return to directing movies unless he is "totally thrilled" with a story.

Ghai last directed Kaanchi: The Unbreakable (2014).

"I shall not direct a movie till I am totally thrilled with a story which is new to me and has a meaningful issue like 'Iqbal'. God has blessed me more than I could have asked for in life," he said in a statement.

Known for films like Karz (1980), Karma (1986), Saudagar (1991) and Taal (1990), he is now enjoying his role as a producer.

"Let the new generation take over and make movies for Mukta Arts. I'm happy as a producer as well as to be in the educational space," said the founder of the production house Mukta Arts Limited.

He also founded Whistling Woods International, which is a film, communication and media arts institute.
