'Pink' has initiated a movement: Director

IANS  |  Mumbai 

Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, whose directorial "Pink" has been invited for a special screening at the United Nations headquarters in New York, feels honoured and says the film has initiated a movement.

Chowdhury said: "We are really honoured. The way people far beyond the target audience have loved 'Pink' is beyond anything we could have imagined. It won't be wrong to say 'Pink' has initiated a movement."

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who stars in the film, which deals with crime against women and more, said: "It is indeed a singular honour. 'Pink' was not meant to be an effort to initiate a movement. But if it has initiated a debate, a discussion, and discourse on the safety of women, I think the purpose of the film is well served."

"Society and morals have undergone changes with time, as have the laws of the land. We are not out to change laws or even suggest that we can. We have just constructed a fictional story and through the circumstances that prevail, put out a few points that could perhaps be viewed as relevant. Our efforts have made an impact far beyond the expected."

Referring to the special screening, Big B's co-star Taapsee Pannu said that the team never thought "Pink" would have such long legs.

"Every time it achieves a new milestone, it feels like we have won an Oscar. This news of the film being invited to the UN came as another reward in our 'Pink' hat. The fact that it is a such a real and honest depiction of the reality that faces women in our country, made it so important, I think," she added.

The film's co-producer Shoojit Sircar is overjoyed.

"It's a great honour. 'Pink' is an universal film. All across the globe, women go through similar situations every day. It's not just a problem in our region. This is a great opportunity for us to start the 'Pink' discussion in the US. In the same way, it's affected our people here India. I hope the people outside also get impacted by the film in the same way."
