Mumbai, Mar 20 (PTI) Human emotions are at the heart of storytelling and a director simply translates that idea for the audiences on the big screen, believes Shekhar Kapur, the director of classic hits such as "Masoom", "Mr India" and the "Elizabeth" series.

The filmmaker, who has had successful parallel careers in India and Hollywood, has returned to film direction after a gap of 16 years with British romantic comedy in "What's Love Got To Do With It?", starring Shabana Azmi, Emma Thompson, Lily James, Shazad Latif and Sajal Aly.

"I make my movies from my heart. Storytelling is an emotional idea. As long as that emotion is relevant, the movie is relevant,” Kapur told PTI in a virtual interview.
