Aneesh Chaganty, a hyderabadi, born and settled in US is actually likes more Indian cinema and says about the influence of Indian masala on his thriller stories…
“There’s an innate desire to create heart-stringy emotions. Even now, every time I go home, amma always has Star Plus on. I think Indian cinema is incredible. It has the ability to just milk the emotion out of anything possible. They’ll cut to a phone call and there will be like a ‘ring ring’ and then cut to everyone reacting to the ring, reacting, reacting, reacting. Then someone will pick up the phone and they’ll do it all over again. I want to make thrillers, but I love being able to balance it with that emotion, I don’t think the Hollywood audience expects that. I just wanted to slide all of this emotion in without anyone expecting it – market a thriller, and then just surprise them by making them cry,” he said.
