Vishal Bhardwaj to make film for children

MUMBAI: Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj has said that he would make another film for children before the next edition of the International Children‘s Film Festival (ICFF).

Speaking on the sidelines of the just concluded 17th International Children‘s Film Festival, organised by the Children‘s Film Society of India (CFSI) at Hyderabad, Bhardwaj said, "I have an intention of making a children‘s film, but not thought of a subject yet but I will definitely be making one which would be ready by the next international children‘s film festival here."

The director-composer, who made his directorial debut with Makdee in 2002 and followed it up with Blue Umbrella in 2007, said that he did not have any qualms funding the project. Bhardwaj made it clear that if anyone approached him with a good script (for children‘s film), he would not hesitate producing it too.

Citing the success of films like Harry Potter and Tintin, Bhardwaj said, "Harry Potter and Tintin, released on many screens, have seen successes as they have attracted children and adults alike.

Giving his impression of why do filmmakers not go in for making of films for children the filmmaker said that lack of distribution network compared to Bollywood commercial films could be one of the reasons for our producers not showing interest in making children films.

Bhardwaj has been associated with the CFSI since 1994.
