Dhulia is in Lucknow with actors Ali Fazal and Shraddha Srinath to fire his arriving film Milan Talkies, that is a adore story set in a times of a singular shade theatres. The filmmaker feels that while multiplexes are in conform right now, singular screens will be behind earlier or later.
“I feel singular shade theatres will come again. we had likely around 8 to 9 years ago that usually large films will make it to a theatres, and middle-of-the-road cinema and tiny films won’t make it to halls. There’s so most selling and broadside cost involved… But afterwards where will they go? Everyone won’t go to Netflix or a web. So, we feel singular shade theatres will come.”
Can a supervision assistance in any way? “What will a supervision do? Government… either aged or new… They provide cinema as a broadside tool. Take a favourite and make him dance during a elections… But they don’t take a film attention seriously, since of that a films are removing finished,” rued a National Award leader of Paan Singh Tomar fame.

“Every week, we have a large Hollywood film, and they are removing dubbed in several Indian languages. Our Hindi films can’t means only… China has a bar on a series of unfamiliar films that can recover there in a year… And here, we put any series (of films). Government is not bothered,” Dhulia said.
He described Milan Talkies as a “sweet tiny city adore story” set in Allahabad, though shot in Lucknow and Mathura.
“The film is set in 2010 and 2013. It was around that time, film prints were still being shown in theatres. That was a time when it faded divided and digital came in. So we did not wish to remove a romanticism that is related with cinema. The imitation playing… Reel changing. That’s because we have set it in those years,” he said.
Enjoying a sharpened knowledge in Lucknow, Dhulia, who has also penned a movie, pronounced Lucknow is a shooting-friendly end where people are comfortable and polite.
