ShanghaiDirector Dibakar Banerjee, who has directed films like Khosla Ka Ghosla, Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! and Love, Sex Aur Dhokha, says that his earlier works make him cringe. The director who is a two time National Award winner is all set for the release of his forthcoming thriller Shanghai.

The director further adds "I may have won awards but when I see my older films and realize the mistakes that I done, it makes me cringe. I feel like a fraud. I wish I could rectify them."

Shanghai, starring Kalki Koechlin, Emraan Hashmi and Abhay Deol, is based on Greek author Vassilis Vassilikos novel Z, but Dibakar says that a lot of changes had to be made to suit the Indian palate. "Ever since I bragged about the film a lot has been changed. The first idea was mostly clichéd and my writer Urmi Juvekar has brought in a lot of changes. It took us one and half year to adapt the Greek story to India," he adds.

When asked if the film puts forth his judgment on the government and whether that would have any repercussions, Dibakar replied, "Without a judgment there can never be any work of art. All my films reflect my point of view on the subject. The film is 100% of what my teammates and I stand for and I don't think the film will have to face any repercussions."
