New Delhi, March 1 (IANS) Bollywood writer-director Muzaffar Ali, who also dons the hat of a painter, says he has borrowed his sense of geometry from the famous artist S.H. Raza.

'I know him since the 1970s and stayed with him in France. I have some precious memories of visiting his studio in Paris,' Muzaffar said.

'I have been painting since I was a child. I met Raza in my formative years and was largely influenced by his art of dividing space on the canvas. When you look at the canvas, you don't know how to start. And I have borrowed that sense of geometry from him.'

He also said he held the painter in high esteem because of his passion to take Indian culture across the globe. 'Raza is truly one of the greatest Indians who has walked the earth. The most wonderful thing is his passion to take the ethos of India and Madhya Pradesh across the globe,' the filmmaker said.
