Son of filmmaker Sivan, he is active in the Malayalam movies since 1990 and is known for making films like "Yodha" and "Nirnayam". He is equally well-versed with Bollywood, thanks to his Hindi directorial ventures "Zor", "Kya Kool Hain Hum" and his forthcoming "Yamla Pagla Deewana 2", coming out June 6.
"He (Santosh) has reached a point where he does not have to do films for a living. He is in a place where he only wants to do what he wants to do. He does things which give him happiness. For me, I am still a struggler and still trying to find my foothold," Sangeeth told IANS.
According to the director, success in the industry means high box-office collections.
"You need to be successful as a director and your film needs to make money. You have to be commercial. I am in a process of trying to reach that stage," he said.
Cinematographer-cum-filmmaker, Santosh, who directed Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor in "Ashoka The Great", mainly focuses on offbeat cinema and some of his works are "Halo", "The Terrorist" and "Tahaan,".
Sangeeth would like to ape his brother and make non-commercial films, but after a while.
"Maybe later I would try my hands at those kind of films. I am a fan of those kinds of films too. But I have made this choice consciously. I want to do commercial cinema right now and do not want to try different things," he said.
However, Sangeeth says he entered filmdom because of Santosh.
"He is the core reason why I entered into feature films. I understand his films and love them. He started earlier than me and he is truly addicted to what he does," said Sangeeth whose another brother Sanjeev is also active in showbiz.
