ifilm has talked exclusively with Behrang Tofiqi on ‘Dilemma’ backstage.
Tofiqi opened up to ifilm in an exclusive interview that all his productions to date have been well received by audiences: “The main function of any TV project is to satisfy the public. I think I was lucky in this regard and all the job offers I received during all these years had an interesting theme. And, I think people received them warmly.”
As some directors believe that the screenplay as a blueprint for the film a director makes needs to be ready beforehand, Tofiqi holds quite a different idea in this regard.
“A good thing about ‘Dilemma’ is that the screenplay doesn’t finish before the casting. We are not confronted with a closed screenplay; a screenplay that we aren’t able to revise,” ‘Amen’ director told ifilm.
Widely known as a filmmaker who makes successful TV series that always find way into hearts, ‘Dilemma’ has been a whole new step for Tofiqi as he believes that “The atmosphere of this project is really new to me and I hadn’t experienced it before.”
