In 2006, Ram Gopal Varma's "Darna Zaroori Hai" featured six stories by six different directors - J.D. Chakravarthy, Manish Gupta, Prawal Raman, Sajid Khan, Jijy Philip and Vivek Shah. In 2007, "Dus Kahaniyaan" was a similar sort of project.
"I am very surprised that more ventures like this didn't happen... I am feeling very lucky to be a part of the four (in 'Bombay Talkies')," said the National Award-winning director at the special screening of the film here Tuesday.
"It could have been any director from Hindi cinema. First of all, I am feeling very privileged and excited. It will only happen once in hundred years," he added.
Banerjee said it is a huge benefit for him as he will get the audience of the other three directors as well.
"For the audiences, it's a great benefit as when they will come to see my film, they will see a Karan Johar film, an Anurag Kashyap and a Zoya Akhtar film. I feel greatly supported as every time I will get my audience to see the film, I will also get the audience of other three directors."
"That's a huge benefit and I have never got a such big audience for my film ever before," said the director, whose last film was "Shanghai".
