Haryana may set up board to promote Haryanvi films

Special Correspondent

CHANDIGARH: Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Saturday assured noted film director and actor Satish Kaushik that his regime would explore the possibility of setting up a film promotion board to promote films on Haryanvi culture.

Kaushik had called on Mr. Hooda here and suggested that Haryana should have a body for the promotion of Haryanvi films as there was a dire need for this.

Later talking to media persons, the film personality said the State Government was also setting up a film and TV institute in Rohtak.

While reiterating that he would provide all assistance to the Government in these endeavours, he expressed concern over the present status of Haryanvi films as compared to films of other regional languages like Bhojpuri, Tamil and Punjabi.

Kaushik said he himself would make at least five Haryanvi films in the next two years and his first Haryanvi film could be expected in a year.

He added that he would also motivate others who want to make films in Haryanvi language and culture.

The Haryanvi film Chandrawal had proved a big success and now he has come to know that its second part was being planned. “Moreover, Haryanvi culture had already made a mark in TV channels and some actors who can perform good Haryanvi roles were available. The films could promote Haryanvi culture in a big way,” he added.

Budget theatres

While expressing concern over the poor state of cinema halls in Haryana, he suggested that budget theatres be set up.

Asked about his strategy to promote Haryanvi films, he replied that he was looking for like-minded people and was selling ideas for Haryanvi films to the rich thus motivating them to invest in this venture. “Initially I will like to focus on entertainment. Theme-based films could be thought of later on,” he added.
