Soha Ali Khan Wishes Indian Cinema Produces More Films On Children

Mohnish Singh |Nov 14, 2019

Actress Soha Ali Khan was interacting with the media at the launch of kid's digital app along with actor Ashish Chaudhary.

Soha Ali Khan, who is the daughter of iconic Bollywood actress Sharmila Tagore and sister of National Film Award-winning actor Saif Ali Khan, has grown up watching all kinds of films. She herself is an actress who has shown her acting prowess in several noted movies over the years. A mother to a 2-year-old daughter Inaaya Naumi Khemu, Soha Ali Khan feels that there is an acute lack of children-based films in India.

"In Hollywood, they have made films like Baby's Day Out (1994) and the Harry Potter series where they show subjects that revolve around children, and children play lead roles in these films. But that doesn't happen here (India). We have made films like Chillar Party (2011) and Taare Zameen Par (2007). I think we should make more films based on children because we have the audience. India is very young country. I think like we used to say there should be women in cinema, and now that has started to happen. I think people are going to start taking children seriously. I take my child very seriously," said Soha Ali Khan, while interacting with the media at the launch of kid's digital app along with actor Ashish Chaudhary.

Ashish, who is a father to three kids, went on to add, "The superhero movies produced by Disney, Marvel or DC are the highest-grossing films in international cinema. In India, everything is evolving, and evolution takes place at a slow pace. Nevertheless, it does takes place."

"I am eventually turning to production and everybody wants to attract the family audience since it is profitable. So, children films will happen. In today's age, thankfully, content-based films are working, so I think soon we are going to see more children films being made in India,” said Ashish.

Talking about her Children's Day plans on November 14, Soha Ali Khan said, "I think every day is Children's Day. (Husband) Kunal (Kemmu) is my second child, so I have two kids at home," she laughed.
