‘Tamasha’ not autobiographical, says Imtiaz Ali

Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali says there might be a few moments from his life in his forthcoming film “Tamasha”, but it’s not an autobiographical.


Talking about the story of the film, Ali said: “‘Tamasha’ has that kind of love which makes a normal person extraordinary, which makes a commoner an artist. This is the kind of love through which you understand why you need a woman in life and how it takes you on a journey through which we identify ourselves.”

Ali, who got separated from his wife a few years back, believes that personal life incidents and thoughts suggest you the story. But it’s not necessary that the story you’re portraying will be completely based on your personal life.

“There might be a few minor moments from my life in ‘Tamasha’, which you can see. But on the whole, it’s not that this film is autobiographical,” he said.
