Actor Raghubir Yadav, who is ready with his next film, Yeh Khula Aasmaan, says he would like to turn director soon, and even has a script ready with him.
“I want to turn director, but I have been unable to fulfill it. I have written a script that suits my sensibility. I have lived in many small towns and one thing I have realised is that there are much more interesting characters in small towns than the metros. Hopefully, I will be able to direct in the near future,” says Yadav.
Yeh Khula Aasmaan, which is the winner of the Best Foreign Feature Film at the All Sports Los Angeles Film Festival and Kids First! Film and Video Festival in the US, is based on the issue of generation gap and academic stress among the young generation. Talking about the film, Yadav says, “I play a dadaji (grandfather) in the film, often ignored by his son. The film is a commentary on how the elderly are left behind by their children once they grow up and move out. The film also explores a sensitive relationship between the grandfather and his grandchild.”
As to his other films, Yadav says, “My next film will be Bhoorie. It’s about a girl who faces struggles in the village that she lives in.”
