Chef Vikas Khanna has made his directorial debut with the film ‘The Last Color.’ It is premiering today at the Cannes Film Festival, and is based on the concept of Indian widows not being allowed to play in Holi. Khanna admits that the story is an emotional one, and he started working on the it seven years ago.
Khanna said, “It’s a very emotional story which I had started working on in 2011 when I had learnt that widows are not allowed to play Holi. One of them reminisced, ‘Aarey bachpan mein toh main Radha ki tarah Holi khelti thi’ and those words have haunted me since, so I wrote this piece of fiction imagining the glorious change that would come about if they were allowed to celebrate the festival of colours too,” as according to Mirror.
Khanna gained worldwide recognition for his appearance as a judge on the ‘Masterchef India’ series.
