Screen Awards 2013: Best Director

This is such great news! Thank God, I am not a part of this year's jury because I am sure it must have been really tough to even finalise the nominations in this category. 2012 was an amazing year for Hindi films because we saw so many good films. I am very happy to be nominated in this category with such wonderful films. Moreover, I am also very glad for all the technicians, who have been nominated because they really put in a lot of hard work. I am keeping my fingers crossed this time because during Life In A Metro, we had 13 nominations, but won only two. I hope we win more this year for Barfi!

Anurag Basu (Barfi!)

I am very materialistic and I love awards! In school, I never came first or second, so it feels great to be nominated, and that too bag 13 nominations for Kahaani! My entire team will be so happy to hear this because they have worked extremely hard. You feel so good when you get such good feedback from the audience, critics and on top of that, get nominated for such prestigious awards. The critics gave a very honest feedback about my previous film (Aladin) and that influenced me to come out with a better film with Kahaani.

Sujoy Ghosh (Kahaani)

It is nice to see so many nominations for our film. It feels like we did something right. The credit should go to Viacom18, all the crew and actors who believed and backed this madness. Who cares whether I win or not. It has been a great year for our cinema, and it is great to see good films nominated. I wish even Gauri (Shinde) and Reema (Kagti) were nominated along side us. And wish to see some absolutely new voices next year.
