Girls more responsible than boys: ‘Challo Driver’ actor-directorJuly 21st, 2012 - 8:09 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, July 21 (IANS) Watching a girl driving a man in a car left Vickrant Mahajan with a unique story idea for a Bollywood film. The result? “Challo Driver”.
His movie highlights how women are making a mark for themselves and entering man’s space by taking up a chauffer’s job.
While several men feel women don’t make safe drivers, Vickrant, who has made his directorial as well as acting debut with the film, believes otherwise.
“Girls and boys can drive a car equally well, and girls are more responsible than boys,” Vickrant told IANS.
“Once when I was driving in Delhi, I saw a car passing by. A lady was driving the car and the boy was sitting behind. After seeing this, the concept of the film occurred to me.”
“I think now girls are aware enough and watchful enough,” he said.
“Challo Driver”, which features Kainaz Motivala playing a female chauffer named Tanya, released Friday. The movie is made on a low budget, and Vickrant just wants the audience to seek small joys from it.
“Films should be made so that the audience enjoys. It is not about making Rs.100 crore, a film should make you happy. It is important that the audience likes the movie, the cost does not matter,” he said.
God willing if “if my audience likes my content, I will make more films. If they don’t, then I have to rethink my work. It is important that the audience likes it.”
