DHOBHI GHAT may have gained international acclaim over the last few months and is expected to create buzz now in India as well. However, if its debutant leading lady Monica Dogra is to be believed, credit for that must go to its director Kiran Rao than just Aamir Khan who is mainly in the capacity of a producer and actor here.

"In the West, they look at the director's work more than concentrating their attention on the lead actor. This is the reason why they knew the film as a Kiran Rao film rather than Aamir Khan's", Monica talks about the experience of various visits that DHOBHI GHAT has made so far in the international circuits.

When asked whether at the end of the day, it was Aamir's reach in the West doing the trick, Monica protests, "It's a wrong assumption to make. In fact Aamir took a back seat there. Kiran was all over and the common sentiment all over was that she is someone to look forward to."


Describing the great high that she felt while sitting amongst the audience, Monica remembers, "It was just so amazing. I could finally cut myself from the movie as someone who was a part of it and instead wore the hat of audience."

She adds, "During the making of the film I was very critical of my performance but as a viewer, I finally got a chance to enjoy the film for what it was. It was such a joyful experience and the icing on the cake was the great reviews. Honestly, even we were pleasantly surprised with the unanimity in appreciation that the film was garnering."

Well, let's see how the film performs commercially, now that it would be making a shift from film festivals to a far more mainstream outing.
