Gandu: Indians have confused sexual identity as individuals
His earlier work dealt with sexual themes too.
But Gandu by its very title has drawn attention to the alternative film scene in India.
The theme of confused identities that Q explores in his films is reflected in his own name too. Originally Quashiq Mukherjee, the filmmaker prefers to go by “˜Q’.
“Everything else has been given to me by others, the name is something I have given myself,” he tells DNA, as he talks about Gandu that won jury awards for the best film and director at the recent South Asian International Film Festival (SAIFF) held in New York City.
