Dunki DOP Quits
In an interview, we got to know that DOP Amit Roy quits Dunki. Amit Roy said: “I am not doing Dunki anymore. I shot for 18-19 days and quit. Raju Hirani and I had some creative differences. We both couldn’t see from the same angle. But let me tell you that the parting was very amicable. We both sat down and then I quit. Honestly, I didn’t want it to reach a stage of friction,”
He further added: “It happens sometimes. I had shot a song in Sanju for Hirani- Baba Bolta Hai Bas Ho Gaya song. We had a great time then. I have also done a few ads for him. But you see, an ad is a collaborative effort wherein the client’s vision also matters. But when it comes to a film, it is the director’s vision. The shots I took will be retained,”
Amit Roy began his career as a cinematographer with the film Ishq Vishk (2003). He later worked in films such as Dil Maange More!!! (2004), Ram Gopal Varma ki Aag (2007), Sarkar Raj (2008), Deewana Main Deewana (2013) and many more.
