|Cinematographer Binod Pradhan to debut as director with Wedding Pulao
Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who has worked with the cinematographer on RDB and BMB, says, "Movies that we've done together have gained cult status. He has been my companion in everything from structuring to shooting, from screenplay to the final edit."
Adds director Rajkumar Hirani, who has collaborated with Binod on Munna Bhai MBBS, "I've always wondered why he has never directed a film. He is not just a great cinematographer, but also a great storyteller who understands cinema deeply."
‘Wedding Pulao’, which is a story about young love and friendship, will be shot at several exotic locales of India and abroad. Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who has worked with Binod in ‘Rang De Basanti’ and ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, was happy for the cinematographer to have taken to direction. Even Rajkumar Hirani, who was associated with Binod for his debut movie ‘Munnabhai MBBS’, was full of praise for Binod’s vast and deep knowledge of cinema.
