"I'm an independent filmmaker. If you are independent, you will get the freedom to do whatever you want. In independent films, you just come out with a good story. So obviously, the film will be made well.

"But we have to ensure that we take out the best acting out of people," the Mary Kom director, who worked with filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali on films like Black and Saawariya as an art director before helming his own movies, told IANS.

Omung's comments came in the light of the "I am a Film maker, I am Independent" movement initiated by Gaurav Pandey. Omung added, "If there is something where all first-time directors come together and strive, and if it can be an inspiration for them, I would obviously like to join them."
