Mumbai, May 3:
I.A. Siddique says his Bollywood debut directorial “I Am Mr. Mother” is about a pregnant man, but there is more to it than just pregnancy.
“Male pregnancy has been portrayed on screen, but they were all comedies. My film is a gripping tale of a pregnant man, but the pregnancy is not the only thing about the movie,” Siddique told IANS.
“It is a dark, emotional story about pain, anguish, love and sacrifice. My film is an eclectic intense drama performed by intelligent, but eccentric individuals to understand the basic pain behind the process of birth and what women feel. If we feel deeply what women feel, there won’t be any kind of violence against women,” he added.
The director also stresses that his project is completely original.
“My film is original from first scene to the last. I’m completely confident about my content and that’s why I haven’t taken a single frame from other movies. There are no Shah Rukh (Khan) and Salman (Khan) in my film so, content is the star for me,” he said.
Siddique says the film is “extremely bold and daring”.
“I won’t deny that my film is extremely bold and daring. No one has ever been so daring and no one will ever dare to attempt such a subject. There are scenes involving sex and drug abuse but they are an integral part of my script and a demand of the plot,” he said.
The film is produced by Raju K. Sontakke under the banner Shri Raja Productions and is expected to hit the screens in June this year. (IANS)
