“I come from a small town in Rajasthan. When I came to Bombay, I assisted Anubhav Sinha sir for 10 years. I learnt everything about movies on the sets. I never visited any film institute. Anubhav sir is my real guru. After assisting him, I came up with my first film ‘Kabootar’ in 2006, and since then my real journey as a filmmaker started,” he added.

Maqbool is extraordinarily comfortable to direct the movie “Khaali Peeli”.

“It took almost 23 years to reach here. Slowly and gradually I have achieved my mark in the industry. It’s totally worth the wait. Happy that I have directed film of such great scale. Couldn’t ask for more,” he mentioned whereas talking about “Khaali Peeli”. IANS
