New Delhi, October 16, 2017 : Filmmaker Divya Khosla Kumar, who has made films like “Yaariyan” and “Sanam Re”, says she would love to make women oriented films as women are now in every field and doing wonders.

“I would love to if I get an amazing script,” said Divya. However, when it comes to actress, she feels that choice is completely dependent on character.

“I don’t have actress or actor in mind as I feel character gives you definition of whom you should cast,” said the filmmaker was set to walk the runway as a showstopper for designer Charu Parashar at Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) Spring- Summer 2018 on Sunday.

Parashar will showcase a collection titled ‘Immortelle’ that derives inspiration from the Victorian glass house through its lush flora and fauna and the undying spirit of a woman.

Talking about the designer, Divya Khosla Kumar said: “The cloth has fitted me so beautifully I like the concept as it showcases women undying spirit. Women work so hard. I think it is time to pay homage to them as they never give up and this is what the line celebrates.”

Talking about how the role of women has changed in the film industry, she says, “Initially it was very male dominated and there were hardly any women director but now women have entered everywhere and they are making their mark. I think its more to do with talent than differentiating on gender.” (IANS)

At a time when mobile phones and social media addiction are becoming a matter of concern for most of us, filmmaker Shoojit Sircar suggests we should go for detox.

The “Piku” director feels at least when we at a party or a get together, we should try to refrain from clicking selfies and posting them on social media. Instead, we can try striking up a conversation.

Sircar expressed his thoughts on Twitter: “Next time you host a party or a get together, or a general addaa gup shup, ban mobile phones. Don’t let anyone. No selfies no social media just pure human to human gup shup. It’s bliss try it.”

The filmmaker’s thoughts remind us of a dialogue from the 2018 Bengali movie “Uma” directed by Srijit Mukherji, where the father (played by Jisshu Sengupta) advises his daughter to stay away from the Internet. When the child protests, the father explains: “It’s neither water nor oxygen. Earlier, we had friends of flesh and blood, not virtual. We shared tiffin, not updates. We followed each other on bicycles, not on Twitter. We liked people and thoughts with our hearts, not clicks.”
