Thanks Miss Braganza for the idea! I love this question! And I suspect many others at DCIB will also love this question.
For me, absolutely Sekhar Kammula! Directed Fidaa, and Anand, and Godaveri, and so many others. Interesting women who are people, and get dreamy really nice dudes as their husbands, and are surrounded by warm caring communities of friends and relatives, and just sort of enjoy life.
Second choice, Farah Khan! I will be slightly objectified and my romance will be weird, and there will probably be a fight scene at some point, but my life will be filled with bright colors and happy endings and Boman Irani, so it’s all good.
Bonus question, LAST choice director:
Karan Johar!!!! Sure, my coats will be AMAZING, and I may get a happy ending eventually, but only after YEARS of angst and misery and beautifully filmed heartbreak. NOT WORTH IT!!!!
