The buzz around the film in the media was so overwhelming that it put Tony in the A-league of directors overnight. Not many are aware that before his filmi debut, Tony has directed several shows which have been telecast on AXN, the most famous one being Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
Not only did the movie have a colossal opening, but it also got Tony his first award in direction. Recently, Tony was named the Best Director for the AXN Action Awards. Says an excited Tony, “My association with the channel goes beyond awards. Yes, I did get the best director award. It always feels nice when the hard work one has done gets appreciation and recognition. I am proud of the film and also very thankful to the audience who loved the film. Blue has created another level in terms of action in Bollywood and I hope to continue in creating something unique for my audience.”
When quizzed further about his future plans he adds, “I am writing my next script. But nothing has been finalized yet. I will be able to talk about it only in the coming months.”
