MUMBAI: Imtiaz Ali has entertained the masses with his directorials like "Jab We Met" and "Highway" and the director says he expresses himself through cinema.

"Cinema is a way to express myself. I think through cinema I can express my interest or who I am. I consider myself lucky that I work in this field," Ali told IANS.

Ali described himself as an old-fashioned movie lover.

"I love to watch movies in a theatre. I like the silence in a theatre, and through a movie I take a trip in the story and get absorbed in it. Watching each and every movie is a celebration for me," he said.

What is his approach to filmmaking?

"I can't decide that my next project will be of a particular genre... whether it will be a thriller or murder mystery. I don't believe in making films like that. For me, a story comes naturally then I make it, and then the audience decides what it is. And yes, in my case I hear that most of them are love stories," said the "Love Aaj Kal" director.

His next project titled "Tamasha" is set to release later this year.
