Ukrainian filmmaker Dar Gai to make Bollywood debut
Her last two directorial ventures, 'Teen Aur Aadha' and 'Namdev Bhau: In Search of Silence', became festival favorites and Ukrainian filmmaker Dar Gai (Daria Gaikalova) is now ready to go the Bollywood way.
Dar, who first came to India on an invite to direct a play, hopes she will get a much better understanding of Indian cinema after she starts working on a film.
She has five films, including one of Bollywood, in pipeline
"I've currently five feature films in pipeline. One of them is a Bollywood film. It'll be much more commercial than my previous films," Dar said, adding "It would be interesting for me to see how I would adapt to that style of filmmaking."
Her film 'Namdev Bhau' was the opening film at the Dharamshala International Film Festival and received thundering response from the audience.
Dar's next Bollywood project is set in Uttar Pradesh
Dar reveals her next project, a light comedy, will be set in Uttar Pradesh.
"It's about a woman who's discovering new sides of hers and the way she is dealing with society," she said.
Dar also has another film in making that focuses on women "who are just trapped in their households."
She's also working on an Indo-Pak border story and few web series.
