Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari: We never carry success at home, raat gayi baat gayi
You can easily find a star couple, aplomb in all their power, in Bollywood. But, it is certainly difficult to find a creative couple here. One such jodi is of filmmaker-writer Nitesh Tiwari and his wife-filmmaker Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari. Both of them have made a mark for themselves with their films. Nitesh is better known for directing ‘Dangal’ which has officially become the highest grossing Indian film worldwide. The director has previously helmed films like ‘Chillar Party’ (co-directed with Vikas Bahl) and ‘Bhoothnath Returns’. On the other hand, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari is one of the most promising filmmakers, who helmed ‘Nil Battey Sannata’. Her second release ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ has been well received by the critics and audiences as well. But, even after tasting success, Ashwiny says that she and her husband, Nitesh Tiwari, don’t carry the baggage of their success to their home.
Recently, while giving an interview to an agency, she said, “We never carry success at home, we leave it behind. We follow the Hindi saying ‘raat gayi baat gayi’ and just keep it simple.” [sic] (Also Read: Varun Dhawan rejects Nitesh Tiwari’s next film?)
“We may now have a few more selfie clicks on the Road but apart from that we haven’t allowed anything else to change in our lives. We don’t even stay in the circuit of Bollywood,we stay far away. It’s good to be this way,” added the director. [sic]
Not many would be aware of this fact that both Ashwiny’s directorial projects, ‘Nil Battey Sannatta’ and ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, have been written by her husband Nitesh.
They are indeed a creative couple. Well, certainly like their fans, we are also too curious to see what exactly will be this creative couple of Bollywood’s next offering for everyone out there.
