Director Mysskin, in an exclusive conversation with indianexpress.com, has revealed that he keeps away from reading everyday news as he would rather use that time to read literature books and do deep thinking about his work and family. “Topical issues like politics and sports giving me a perspective,” he explained.

“If I want to make a movie about a psychopath, I have to do a lot of research. The news reports about murder, helped help me to write deeply about a character, ”he said.


For example, he said he considered think he can make a movie about the outbreak of the coronavirus. “I do one movie in a year. I want my movies to last for 100 years. I loved want movies to last for 100 days. For that, I have to find a topic, where people have not done a deep inquiry, ”he added.
