ROHIT BAKSHI AND AASHKA GORADIA AT ‘DEHRADUN
Actor Rohit Bakshi and Bigg Boss contestant Aashka Goradia were spotted at the premiere of Dehradun Diary held at PVR Cinemas in Phoenix Mall, Lower Parel, Mumbai, on Thursday evening.
Rohit has been working in TV industry for quite a long. He said at the premiere, “As an actor one needs progression and after television everyone aspires for films. I surely want to do masala films in fact. I don’t mind running around trees. But I won’t quit television for sure.”
He further added, “When I signed this film, it was totally a decision based on its strong script and good storyline. I wanted to do this film because it is a take on how system reacts when a corrupt politician’s daughter fell in love with a common man and how things change with that person. This film is based on a real incidence. Now, when all of us have witnessed this shameless act of Delhi gang rape case where not a single politician came out in open to support the victim or to take a stand for her and how we the common people are fighting against our own system for justice, it’s really unhelpfully complicated. It’s the time to change ourselves. I always wanted to start my carrier with such a powerful and relevant subject.”
This film is about ordinary people who put up an extraordinary fight. People who become epitome of ‘standing for your rights’. The film is the journey of the mother who has lost the child she once held in her hands and dreamt of an old age holding his hands. It’s the journey of a brother who could have focused on his career, his future, yet decides to give it all up so that never again a brother loses his ‘bhai’ to an act of rage.
It’s also the journey of a soulmate who loses herself after the loss so much so that she takes any path she is guided to. Even turns supportive of her own brother when faced with legality.
Dehradun Diary is a much needed film about the strength in common man, the fury that loss lends you and fearlessness that come only with unconditional love.
