At the recent press conference of Titli, Kanu Behl, the Director stated that the film is born out of personal experience.
He has worked extensively with Dibakar Banerjee, and along with him he figured he had to write something from his own experience to be honest with his film making. There was a lot of anger, which came from strongly believing in something.
The director, who has co-written the script with Sharat Katariya, says the germ of the story stemmed from his own conflict with his father but denies the story is autobiographical.
'Titli' is slated to make its world premiere in the 'Un Certain Regard' category at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.
