I want to be a part of movies that define cinema and demand repeat viewing for the sheer quality of direction, writing, cinematography and performances. So, when MN+ approached me for their property ‘Talking Films’, I was really impressed with this idea of showcasing Hollywood masterpieces for the channel. I feel we should encourage cinema lovers to develop a deeper understanding and love for the art of cinema. I’m personally a big fan of some of the movies that are going to be aired like ‘Life is Beautiful’, ‘Theory of Everything’, ‘Creed’, ‘Goodwill Hunting’, ‘Boyhood’ and ‘Interstellar’, to name a few. I’m really excited to watch these movies on MN+ and I want to tell the audience that these are a must watch for them too.”
