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, a statement issued on behalf of the actor read. “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.
Written by Annukampa Harsh and Shaan Vyas and developed with RSVP associate producer Sanaya Irani, “Natkhat” is directed by Vyas. “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 in a statement.
“When I first heard the 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,” Screwvala said.
