With films like Trapped and Udaan, Vikramaditya Motwane has done enough to prove the fact that he’s stellar storyteller. Recently, he paired up with Anurag Kashyap for the action drama Sacred Games, a Netflix original that received immense love and popularity ever since it went online. Not just that, the web series also went on to secure a nomination at the International Emmys in the category Best Drama.
We managed to have a quick chat with the director before he head to the award show in New York. Vikramaditya spoke about the time when he first found out that Lust Stories made it to the Emmys. He said, “I was sleeping and I woke up to a flurry of messages congratulating me. And I was asking myself that what is happening? Later, I saw screenshots and news links and then it hit me. The Emmys is the pinnacle of recognition in the television space so I naturally was very proud. I’m excited to be here and I love the fact that we’re all doing this together. Whether we win or lose, I’m just happy to be here.”
