Ranvir Shorey on importance of indie cinema

There used to be a time not long ago when there was no space for indie and arthouse films in the mainstream cinema. While mainstream cinema serves the purpose to entertain the masses, it's the indie and experimental cinema which helps setting the new trends ans style of filmmaking. The formula of successful indie films is then followed by other projects to come as well.

Actor Ranveer Shorey has been a part of several off beat movies like ‘Pyaar Ke Side Effects’, ‘Khosla Ka Ghosla’, ‘Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd’, ‘Bheja Fry’, ‘Mithya’, to ‘Titli’, ‘A Death In The Gunj' and he believes that the experimental and entertaining cinema are not mutually exclusive.

Ranvir said, “I think indie cinema works like the R&D department for the business of cinema. You see, in mainstream commercial films, there is huge money involved so it is naturally a profit-making business. And business follows a formula."

He continued, “Going out of formula with a huge budget and if the film fails, it becomes too much of a risk to take for the production house. There come indie films. These are small budget films with a high concept and if we continued to make these films, with high conviction and a small budget and manage to get success, the sensibility is bound to change.”
