Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra would rather stay away from showing his film to PM
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s ‘Mere Pyare Prime Minister’s trailer released yesterday, and we must say that we were impressed. It looks like a gritty and realistic film without any big names. If it manages to find success at the box office, we’ll know that the times are changing.
Now, at the trailer launch yesterday, Rakeysh was asked about whether he would like to show his film to the PM. Without thinking twice, Mehra said, “We don’t have any such plans yet. It has become very fashionable. I would rather want to stay away from it.”
When the reported further probed him about his stand, Mehra retorted, “Now you are going far into it. You asked something and I very honestly replied. There are no ‘whys’. I feel the film is made for the people of the country and somewhere I don’t want to dilute that and use such a big office. He is a very busy man running the country. To take three hours of his time which he could devote to some national and international interest. Just because I want to promote the film, it doesn’t suit me. (But) if he wants to watch the film, it will be an honour.”
