Prerna Arora Talks Upcoming Projects And Appreciating Talent
She talked about inequality when it comes to appreciating and giving credit to creative individuals.
Producer Prerna Arora is making waves with her new production house Mandiraa Entertainment. The production house recently announced two back-to-back films ‘Iti’ and ‘Rosie’. She recently talked to Mid-Day about her upcoming projects as well as giving an equal amount of credit to people who work behind-the-scenes.
Talking about ‘Iti’ and ‘Rosie’, the producer said, “‘Iti’ is a sleek whodunit thriller, based on a very unique premise and it will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. ‘Rosie’ on the other hand, is first of its kind, a horror-thriller based on true events in Gurgaon, something that we want to develop as our in-house franchise.”
She also talked about inequality when it comes to appreciating and giving credit to creative individuals.
She said, “Unfortunately people don’t get an equal amount of credit they deserve for the work they put in. I think the one way to go forward is by appreciating the talent on its own merit without really adding a name tag or legacy to it, and then hiring and nurturing that talent because one genuinely believes in that potential. It cannot be denied that there is certain inequality when accrediting people, although, I am ever hopeful that things will change and people are recognised for their talent rather than any other external determinant.”
Further, she offered a solution to remedy the situation. Prerna Arora stated, “I think there should be a system in place to give every technician his due credit. For example, a writer is one of the most important cogs in the wheel of filmmaking but is always ignored or sidelined in terms of credit. At Mandiraa Entertainment we will always ensure that the writer and his team get prominent credit in our films. Similarly, in every film, we will ensure that we will give ample opportunities to newcomers and passionate individuals. At least one new technician and one debutant actor will be part of our all ventures.”
