Manoj Biddvai, Meghna Naidu, Dipti Naval, Ashok Nanda & Manoj Verma"Family based prostitution in India exists in more than 300 districts. But unfortunately Our Law and Order System do not consider this as a major issue. The system, which started as a community tradition ‘rivaaz’ now operating as a money-making trade within the knowledge of the lawmakers and protectors." Thus says maker Ashok Nanda, the man behind RIVAAZ; the Indian film that has been chosen for the New York Film Festival. Besides Nanda, Deepti Naval, Meghna Naidu, Ritisha, Manoj Biddvai, Manoj Verma, associate producer Sandeep Jain, music directors Raj Inder Raj and Reeg Deb and screenplay writer Rakesh Chandra Saroj were part of the celebrations.

A Deekksha Screen Entertainment and Laurel Entertainment Presentation, RIVAAZ is a film against the exploitation of women. Meghna Naidu essays the character of a girl from the village who is not pretty and hence cannot earn money to feed her family through prostitution in the film. Young Ritisha plays a girl being forced into the trade and Deepti Naval plays her mother. Says Meghna, "RIVAAZ is a film about dignity, about hope of women who are traded in the name of tradition. I love the subject and am proud to be apart of it." Deepti Naval expressed that she was happy that "such subjects find makers and producers," while Rishita expressed her desire "to adopt a girl child from a village." All in all, a thought provoking fare.
