Danis Tanovic: “I didn’t steal India’s Oscar”



In this interview with Rajeev Masand, Bosnian filmmaker Danis Tanovic talks about his new film Tigers that opens at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend. Tanovic directed the war satire No Man’s Land in 2001, beating Aamir Khan’s Lagaan to win the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film that year. Over the years Tanovic has emerged an important international voice whose films have told real, sometimes uncomfortable stories about the world we live in. After struggling for eight years to get his passion project off the ground, he shot Tigers in Patiala last year after Indian producers Guneet Monga and Prashita Chowdhary helped put the finances together. Tanovic also cast Emraan Hashmi in the central role.
