Bollywood actress has given us several hits and has made her mark in Bollywood for the last few years. Now it was last year when Vidya Balan announced that she will be donning the hat of a producer with a short film titled Natkhat. The film is based on a mother who educates her son about gender equality, respect for women from a very young age. It also talks about the importance of consent when it comes to any kind of relationship. Now, Vidya took to her social media pages and shared the first look of Natkhat.
In the poster, the actor is seen donning a simple saree with a veil on her head and a sindoor on her forehead while she is massaging her young son’s head. Vidya is giving a pensive look as if she is tensed about something. The actor-producer captioned the post stating, ““Ek kahaani sunoge…?” Presenting the first look of my first short film as a producer and also as an actor #Natkhat. @rsvpmovies #ronniescrewvala @sanayairanizohrabi @shaanvs @annukampa_harsh” Earlier while talking about Natkhat, Vidya had said, “It’s the 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!” She also opened up about changing a child’s perspective through parenting in an interview and said, “So, in the film, the mother systematically tries to change a child’s perspective of the power equation, gender equality, respect and more, through stories. Conversations around the role of parenting, and what constitutes consent should be constantly evolving. We are both victims and perpetrators of patriarchy.”
We are excited to see Vidya play the role of mother in reel life and also as a producer for the first time in real life! It will be interesting to see how parenting can be a huge influence on a child’s mindset. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
