Tellybuzz spoke to Rajan Shahi to know about his feeling for the same. An elated Rajan told us, "It's a proudest moment. After 12 yrs. of directing in the industry, I opened a production house and named it as Director's Kut Proudction. After sharing a long association Romesh started to direct shows. It's a pride fact that Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai has won 46 awards over the years and this is the first award which we have got for best direction. It's also an emotional moment for me as it's always great if a master is known by his student. I had a 15 year old association with him and he has proved to be my right hand when I was setting up the production house.
Today his assistants are directing shows in the company and tomorrow I want his assistants to grow like this and win awards. It all started from Mahesh Bhatt to Ravi Rai then Rajan Shahi to Romesh Kalra and the legacy continues. Ravi Roy assisted Mahesh Bhatt and I assisted Ravi Roy and Romesh assisted me and now he has directors assisting him and this is how the legacy is continuing."
Tellybuzz wishes Director's Kut a hearty congratulations for the success.
