Kiran Rao might be just a debutant director, but she is already carrying the spirit of a rebel filmmaker.
Now, for her upcoming film DHOBI GHAT, Kiran has stayed away from all the bollywood stereotypes and formulas. Perhaps that is one of the reasons why the Munnis and Sheilas don't find any scope in the film.
Though it might have been easier for Kiran to make the film cash on the weekend collections by adding a Munni or making it look like an Aamir Khan film, but she has stood her ground.
According to her, "I have never approached the marketing of my film thinking about the weekend collections. I could have easily added item numbers to make it more massy but I have refrained from doing that just because I don't want the film to lose its flavour. As far as Aamir is concerned, I have not tried to overuse him in the posters. I don't want to show something which is not there in the film." Well, looks like Kiran's debut venture is all set to break a few old habits of filmmaking in bollywood.
