Hyderabad: Persian film-maker and director Soheil Movaffagh feels that the mindset and the desires of the children across the world, irrespective of their culture, are the same. “After closely watching the response of the kids in Hyderabad while watching my movie i wish like making films in Indian languages too,” the Persian film-maker said here today.
Addressing media persons after screening of his film “Chocolate” for the child delegates that is selected for the ongoing International Children Film Festival, Soheil Movaffagh termed the response as tremendous. ‘The children received my film well,” he added.
Stating that he has now decided to make films in Indian languages and also for Iran’s audience, particularly for children, the Persian director explained the reasons that made him produce a children film.
“I have been working with the film industry in my country from the age 13 and this has largely helped me produce a good film like “Chocolate”, he observed.
Admitting that making films with children is not an easy task for others, he said, “But in my case it is different. I have been with the industry since my childhood and this made my job easy as to know how to move with them,” he noted.
Observing that he will begin his Indian film sometime next year with the help of some Indian producers, he stated that 90 per cent of his film will be made in India. “I will use the ongoing International Children’s Film Festival platform to interact with my Indian counterparts so that the film will come out well,” he said.
The children film producer strongly believes that kids should be given total freedom to express themselves.
Profusely thanking the Telangana Government for making such elaborate arrangements for this international fest, he said that he liked the Indian culture and wanted to develop permanent relationship with the country. (INN)
