I enjoy being a Delhi Guy in Bollywood- Imtiaz Ali

Filmmaker Imitiaz Ali’s love for the capital is well known and he has always managed to present a new dimension of the city on screen.

He was in town for a conference recently and talking about the difference in language he has observed in Delhi and Mumbai he said,

We make movies in Hindi and Hindi in Delhi is interesting. The kind of flair in language that you get in this city is something you don’t get in other cities. Delhi has made Hindi its own. I now live in Mumbai of course, but I’ve noticed people in Mumbai don’t have that flair that Delhi has over the language.

He enjoys being a Delhi guy in the industry,

A lot of people in Bombay who make movies are either sourced from Delhi or like me and Anurag (Kashyap) and others have come through the Delhi University route and have that basic ethic of Delhi. So when we reach Bombay, we are thought of as Delhi guys.
