Surveen Chawla, one of the leading ladies of Parched, feels director Leena Yadav has beautifully weaved in female emotions in the upcoming movie. Parched, a bittersweet tale of three rural women, will have its premiere tonight in the Special Presentations section at the ongoing Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) before it releases in India.
The movie has been co-produced by Bollywood superstar Ajay Devgn. Surveen considers it as a positive sign that a female-oriented film has been backed by a man.
"For this film (Parched) you need to have somebody, who is sensitive. In my knowledge, it cannot be made by a man. The flag bearer or captain of the ship has to be a woman. But when aman is supporting the film, it shows how their mentality is changing towards women. It's a positive sign," Surveen said. The 31-year-old Hate Story 2 actress is excited to attend the film's premiere at an international festival after her last Bollywood outing "Ugly" had its screening at the Cannes.
"I am excited that we will be getting a great honour at the TIFF. This ismy second time at an international film festival. I feel lucky that my films get premiered at festivals. I will be walking the red carpet too."
