MUMBAI: Mangesh Hadawale's Dekh Indian Circus has won the Golden Reel
Award 2012 for the Best Children's Film at 11th Tiburon Film Festival.
The film is the story of maternal devotion despite harsh reality of
poverty. It also won the Audience Choice award at the recently held
16th Busan International Film Festival.
Said Hadawale, "After Tingya, I had got about 20-25 offers to direct
films for several production houses. But only two of them were in
Marathi, and rest of them were in Hindi. I met the people at Sundial
Pictures through a common friend.
They liked the concept of Dekh Indian Circus and wanted to produce it.
I was little skeptical in the beginning as it was going to be their
debut production. But then I thought of the 41 producers who had
refused Tingya because it was my debut directorial venture. My
producers strongly believe in the film that I have made."
