Haven’t seen calm director like Nitesh Tiwari: Girish

Mumbai, Dec 24 (IANS) Marathi actor Girish Kulkarni, who worked with Nitesh Tiwari in “Dangal”, says he has never seen a calm and composed director like him.

Girish told IANS: “Nitesh is a fantastic director. I haven’t seen such a calm and composed director ever. He is open to take suggestions from his actors. His vision is very clear or else it wouldn’t have been easy to direct such a mega project so well.”

He plays the role of a coach in “Dangal”, which stars Aamir Khan.

“My character revolves around the protagonist so, I am the only character who creates obstacles in the journey. I have a substantial role in the film. That’s why I said yes to this film,” said Girish.

The biopic, which hit the screens on Friday, presents Aamir as the former wrestler and renowned coach Mahavir Singh Phogat, who taught wrestling to his daughters Babita Kumari and Geeta Phogat.
