Mumbai: Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali believes that the Indian film industry needs fresh talent to flourish, and for this, entry in filmdom needs to be eased.

"We should introduce new energy in the film industry and need to make the entry point easier and talent-based," the Jab We Met director said at the trailer launch of a new movie titled Cute Kameena.

"To thrive for a film industry, it needs to get to introduce new talents and new people in the industry. And if the range becomes big, lots of talented actors, writers and directors will come in the scene. It will be easier for the industry to entertain more and grow as well," added the director.

Talking about his own journey, the Jamshedpur-born director said: "When I came to Mumbai, my only purpose was to earn money. So I had no other option but to start working in any field just to survive in the city. I did an advertising course but could not manage to get a job. Then I worked in a reputed channel. I remember my state of mind when I released my first film."

Imtiaz's last directorial venture Tamasha featured Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone.
