Nandita Das happy that ‘Gattu’ made it to Berlin!

Nandita Das, chairperson of the Children’s Film Society of India (CFSI) is a happy soul. Why? Because Gattu, a movie directed by Rajan Khosa and produced by CFSI has made it to the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival. It’s the only other Indian entry apart from Shahrukh Khan’s Don 2 this time. The story of Gattu is written by KD Satyam and is an autobiographical that revolves around how a street urchin aspires to defeat a black kite named Kali. The story is close to Nandita’s heart who wants her son Rehaan to fly kites too. “We have festivals like Sankranti and Uttarayan, but today, it’s rare to see a kite in the sky,” she says. But Nandita laments the plight of such movies in mainstream cinema. “It was my first experience as a producer in a country where economics often comes in the way of art. Had Gattu been a big banner production, the news would have been all over now,” she says. Now that Gattu has made it to Berlin, does Nandita harbour aspirations of making a child-oriented movie? To which the lady who’s been reading many scripts replies, “Maybe one day, soon,” and adds that it’ll have to be a project special enough for her to sacrifice her time with Rehaan, who is a year-and-a-half. Now, that’s a doting mother speaking, right?
