Reported in The Indian Express, Bose who has made a biopic on Poorna Malavath, the youngest girl to climb Mount Everest said the music launch of ‘Poorna’, “We received a lot of invites from film festivals and we have said no. My aim was to bring this film to people whose hearts and minds I know best. For me, the audience in India matters the most.”
Bose added “After being in the industry for 22 years and travelling across the country, I know what touches (referring to stories) Indians… We are having an official screening at Rashtrapati Bhavan. The film is getting a tax-free status in Delhi, Karnataka and we are hoping other states will also do it.”
Bose shares that he made ‘Poorna’ with the “aim to make a movie for the urban and rural people without subtitles.”
Talking about the creative privileges filmmakers have when making a biopic, Bose said that despite having done that himself in the past, assures that ‘Poorna’ is 90 percent real. “I know there are biopics where you laugh and you know there is an element of dramatisation. In ‘Poorna’, except one fictitious character, everything is real. Around 85-90 per cent of the film is real. Even the locations are real except Mount Everest. Poorna and her family are aware about the film.”
‘Poorna’ is expected to release in India on the 31st March.
