Vidya Balan is all set to turn producer with a socially relevant short film titled Natkhat, in which she will also act. The actor has collaborated with producer Ronnie Screwvala to back this film. As per the press release issued by the makers, Natkhat addresses several issues such as patriarchy, gender inequality, rape, domestic abuse, compartmentalisation by men in different relationships with women; and in doing so surpasses all possible barriers, be it age, gender, urban-rural divide and nationality.
“It’s a beautiful and powerful story that called out to me in a way that made me want to act in it and also turn producer. And who better than RSVP to do it with,” Vidya said. Vidya also shared that she wasn’t planning “to turn producer but the story written by Annukampa Harsh and Shaan Vyas propelled me in that direction”. Screwvala said he is looking forward to work with Vidya. “When I first heard script of Natkhat, I immediately knew this film had to be made.
The film addresses so many issues and gives out a powerful message too,” he added. The makers added the film is being essentially made for international film festivals. Written by Annukampa Harsh and Shaan Vyas and developed with RSVP associate producer Sanaya Irani, Natkhat is directed by Vyas.
