Imtiaz said he has certain ideas with him which can be turned into a series with limited number of episodes.

"I am planning to... I am talking to people about may be a (web) series as well. Basically, I am opening the gates, I feel we might be getting into, at some point, a short series with limited number of episodes," he said.

Imtiaz was speaking on the sidelines of a special screening of his short film, 'India Tomorrow' here.  

Having directed six feature films since his debut in 2005 with 'Socha Na Tha', Imtiaz says he has some story ideas over the years which he couldn't put on big screen.

"Sometimes you have story ideas which you feel are not really meant for films... And I have some of them over the years which are very dear to me but I haven't made them because intrinsically I know it is not for theatre watch," he said.

"A lot of things are like serials. Like I've got a spy story, which isn't ending at a particular point, it goes on. It's more about this person... It has got an episodic nature," Imtiaz added.

The "Tamasha" helmer has made "India Tomorrow", a 5-min short film which chronicles a conversation between a sex worker and her customer, which leads to a powerful message.

The filmmaker said the short film addresses the ability to have dreams even though people may be divided over certain issues.

"'India Tomorrow' is the sum total of all our dreams and all our hopes. We might be divided over issues but all our combined dreams, is going to make India tomorrow. And nobody, no matter what he or she does, is below the purview of that. There is no one who can't afford a dream."
