The film is extensively shot at the Rann of Kutch and has been doing rounds of various international film festivals
Kirti Kulhari, who is busy promoting her forthcoming movie Jal, says it’s not an art film but a complete Bollywood masala entertainer. The movie, directed by first-timer Girish Malik, has done its rounds at various film extravaganzas, including the Busan International Film Festival. This, Kirti believes, must not paint a wrong picture of the movie.
“It’s a myth that once a film goes for festivals, it doesn’t do well commercially. I think some recent films have changed that notion. As far as Jal is concerned, it’s not an art film. It’s a complete Bollywood masala film, but it’s not a no-brainer,” Kirti informed. The movie is said to have taken around three years to get a commercial release, but Kirti says the wait has been worth it. ”I used to get nervous thinking why it’s taking so long for the release, but this film has been shot on a large canvas and it has to do with lot of graphics. This film needed that much of time, but its looking very fresh and fits in today’s film. It was worth the wait,” she added.
Jal also features Purab Kohli and Tannishtha Chatterjee. The film is slated to release April 4.
