‘Balak Palak’ will open doors for more Marathi Films: Genelia Dsouza

Riteish Deshmukh’s is all set to debut with Marathi movie ‘Balak Palak’ as a producer and his wife Genelia Dsouza hopes that the film helps in the growth of Marathi movies.

We are hoping that the film touches a lot of people.

she said at the 14th Mumbai Film Festival, and added that they are hoping it opens the doors for Marathi cinema ‘because that’s been Riteish’s goal, you know, to let it grow’.

‘Balak Palak’ was screened at the festival and will be releaseed on Nov 30. Genelia hopes for a pan-Indian audience for Marathi films.

I sometimes wish that we could get all of them to a national audience. I wish Marathi cinema only grows and that’s one of the reasons why Riteish is doing a Marathi film next year and we hope to see a lot more Marathi films next year.

she said.

Talking about the film, Genelia said it is about children coming of age.

I know it’s so difficult to ask your parents so many things sometimes and it’s important that parents and children have that rapport which my film talks about.
