Director Jagan Shakti who made his Bollywood debut with Mission Mangal recently talked about his struggle in the industry. He said, “I really slogged hard in the industry. Irrespective of many chances of me being able to direct and not able to direct stuff, I waited for the right script. I think hard work really pays someday. Coming to Mumbai from Bengaluru, where I had a comfortable life, and travelling in local trains. Survival of the fittest happens every day in Mumbai. Mumbai told me many times ‘to go back’ but I prevailed.”
He further added that he’s a big fan of cinema, “I am a crazy fan of cinema and that is what kept driving me. To finally get to see your name on the screen as a director is the moment for which we do all the slogging and hard work.”
