Filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra has words of appreciation for actor Priyanka Chopra’s maiden Marathi production Ventilator.
“I’ve already seen the film. Today, I called many of my friends to watch, as I am so impressed with the film. I think everybody should see the movie. I am supporting a good film. If Ventilator had not been a good movie, I would have never come here, even if Rajesh Mapuskar has directed it,” said Vidhu Vinod.
The Marathi film, produced by Priyanka and her mother Madhu Chopra under their production banner Purple Pebble Pictures, has as many as 116 actors. Ventilator is written and helmed by Ferrari ki Sawaari fame director Rajesh Mapuskar.
Along with the film, Vidhu Vinod also praised the track titled Baba. Priyanka has recorded the promotional track in Marathi and dedicated the song to her late father Ashok Chopra.
Vidhu Vinod said: “The song is in the Marathi language, and it is so emotional that it could be felt. Cinema has no language.”
Asked about the recent controversy regarding Ae Dil Hai Mushkil over insulting late legendary singer Mohammed Rafi in the film, Vidhu Vinod said: “I don’t watch Hindi films these days. The film which you have mentioned, I haven’t seen it, neither I have any interest to see.”
