Parey Hut Love Trailer Coming to Cinemas With Baaji

In conversation with the star we asked him how Baaji will play out as a women-centric film in midst of a patriarchal society?

There have been very few female oriented movies to be honest, we had Cake, we had Laal Kabootar which was kind of mixed it wasn’t just from a female perspective, it was from Ahmed Ali’s perspective as well. We had Motorcycle Girl then we had Verna.

I do feel that there is this question mark that people have that if its a female-centric film it is going to be an art film, or a social theme film, the film won’t have “Masala”!

So I think what we are doing is very important we are breaking that norm that women-centric film is just an art film, no this is a hard core masala film.Every body will enjoy it, those who are going to dig deeper and find the sub-text this film is for them and those who are going to see it at face value it is also for them.

Did you have any reservations before diving into the project?

Definitely it was risky, because if you look at it from a commercial perspective the major hits have been male centric films, in fact male centric films romantic comedies, male centric crass comedies, or male centric patriotic movies.This is the formula of success. So I think what Baaji is doing, it is subverting the expectation and changing the formula.

The actor hopes that the film will be a trendsetter and enable change in norms and perspective about women-centric films. Baaji has hit the cinemas today nationwide.
