Mumbai: Actor turned director Nandita Das and filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra came together to launch Paro Anand's book Weed that revolves around a child caught in between the war against terror in Kashmir and for both the guests the subject of the book was close to their hearts.
“As adults it’s out responsibility to see that the children are in a good environment, and this book exactly talks about that,” says Nandita Das.
“I feel for Kashmir and especially the children of Kashmir and that’s what the book talks about. For me it is time that the people and the government treat all children equally,” says film maker, Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
Nandita spoke on the topic of terrorism and also about her directorial debut Firaaq on a similar subject whose release date has further been pushed.
"It’s a good question to the producers, I think its due to recession, that it has been pushed further,” says Nandita Das.
Well here's hoping Firaaq film soon gets to see the light of the day.
