Watching movies can break barriers of colour and culture, Minister of Information and Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Rathore said here while inaugurating the European Union Film Festival.

Rathore on Monday inaugurated the gala, where 24 latest European movies are being screened from 23 European countries. The festival, which opened with Slovakian movie “Little Harbour”, will traverse through 11 cities in India, read a PIB statement.

Rathore said the charm in watching a film is in seeing the story as well as meeting people, and that is the essence of a film festival. He said that though people across the border vary by skin colour and culture, they are one people, and that watching films breaks these barriers and the story gets communicated to the people of any country.

He said even if the language of the film is not understood, the emotion in a film is understood through the body language.

Veteran actress Shabana Azmi says the filmmaking process has developed in the country which she considers to be the best thing that has happened to Indian cinema.

Shabana had a candid conversation on 92.7 BIG FM where she spoke about acting workshops, importance of scripts and a host of other engaging topics, read a statement.

“What is good about today’s movies is that there are acting workshops organised with an intent to bring a familiarity between the actors and characters which is essential for any film,” Shabana said.

“This also helps the actors in understanding the director’s vision in a proper way. Today, actors have well-researched scripts in their hand which wasn’t the case with us earlier.

“I always used to feel strange about it, especially working with child actors. The filmmaking process has developed which I feel is the best thing that has happened to the Indian cinema,” added the actress, who has shared screen space with former child actors like Jugal Hansraj, Urmila Matondkar and Shweta Prasad.
