She is at it again. The relentless activist-actor Vani Tripathi has done it again. She is now making a film on one of the most gruesome truths facing the country i.e. "Farmer Suicides".
Speaking passionately about it as she always does about most things, Vani says that the farmer suicide situation is a "BURDEN ON HER SOUL". Speaking on the topic at length she said, "I have been going to Maharashtra and its interior belts for number of years by now. I have seen the heart rending conditions that the farmers are facing and the incompetence of the present govt. Which has not been able to do anything about it."
More than a lakh of farmers have committed suicide in the past one year itself only in Maharashtra so you can well imagine what the condition would be all over the country.
Vani says "she has nightmares about the farmer suicide situation" and says "that it is giving her sleepless nights." The entire shooting will happen in the interiors of the state and will be there for a month both in the Vidarbha and the Marathwada region of Maharashtra. Vani says its right time "The truth needs to be told." And she has decided to take up this very strongly.
Her work with the Bhartiya Janta Yuva Morcha is also in focus as she's addressing "Woman Issues" very convincingly all across the country.
She says being a young national secretary of the youth wing of the party is a huge responsibility and she wants to do more advocacies for the issues relating to young women all across the country.
Talking about her acting work, she said more wants to be on a path which she connects to and also talk about those truths also which we ignore. "My work has to reflect my ideas."
On being asked how she feels about being on aggressive speaker and a "star campaigner" for the BJP She says, "She feels passionate about the political path that she's on". She rejects the word "Star" and says we are all "Karyakartas" of the party and we have to do so much more as every activity has social accountability and she is very aware about it.
