Filmmaker Anurag Basu, who started his  career in direction with 1996 hit daily soap "Tara", says films should not be considered superior to television and adds that film making is easier.

He also directed TV shows "Star Bestsellers" and "Koshish... Ek Aashaa" before making his big screen debut with 2003 movie "Saaya" starring John Abraham and Tara Sharma.

"I don't feel that films are superior to television. I don't know why people say this? I do films, but trust me, television is much more difficult than making films," Basu told the reporters an award function here on Saturday.

Anurag, who was bestowed with a special award at the ceremony, rues when he used to work in the television industry as a director and writer, but there were no such awards.

"I belong to TV. I was born here as a director. Sometimes I get jealous that there were no award functions like this in our time," said Basu.

"We did so much hard work in TV and never got an award," he added.

His last release was Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra starrer "Barfi!", which was also India's official entry to the Oscars last year.

Currently, Basu is busy co-judging the children's talent show, "India's Best Dramebaaz" on Zee TV along with actors Sonali Bendre and Vivek Oberoi.
