Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn says his upcoming production venture Parched is a relevant film, which should be seen by men to learn how to treat women in society.
Directed by Leena Yadav, Parched stars Radhika Apte, Tannishtha Chatterjee and Surveen Chawla in lead roles. “This film is not just about women... It is also about men to learn. It’s society pressure, I would say, which forces men to do the things they do, apart from the mindset...”
“From the film, there is nothing much that women need to learn about what is happening with them,” the actor told reporters at the trailer launch.
Parched traces the bittersweet tale of four ordinary women who struggle with their individual boundaries to face their demons and stage their own personal wars.
The movie has ready travelled to several film festivals aboard and won a lot of acclaim as well as top honours.
The Singham actor said it is sad they couldn’t start the film’s journey by first releasing it in India but hopes it gets the same reception here a it got in the West.
