Randeep Hooda and Ileana D'Cruz starrer film 'Tera Kya Hoga Lovely' has been released in theaters today. The story of this film directed by Balwinder Singh Janjua is based on color discrimination and dowry system. The writer of the film is Kunal Mandekar and co-writer is Anil Rudhan. Kunal Mandekar and Anil Rudhan had a special conversation with Dainik Bhaskar about the story of the film.

Kunal Mandekar told during the conversation that color discrimination has been going on in our society for years. This is a big issue which we want to bring before the society through the film. Apart from apartheid, the film also shows the evil practice like dowry. He also told that as a writer he also wants to work with Shahrukh Khan.

Regarding the concept of the film, Kunal said- I had seen this kind of environment around me since the beginning. Even today, apartheid in the society is less at some places and more at other places. Girls have to suffer the most in matters of colorism and marriage. Keeping this in mind, he has written this story about a girl who has to endure a lot because of her dark complexion.

Kunal told- I had already got the idea of ​​the story. I narrated the story to the film's co-writer Anil Rudhan. After this we both worked together on it. Anil Rudhan said that giving and taking dowry has become very common in our society. Those who cannot give dowry are forced to give dowry. Because it has been made like a custom.

Explaining the purpose of this story, Kunal Mandekar said – The purpose of this story is to make every person realize that only the true color of the heart matters and nothing else. He said- It is important to show both the issues in the society. Because many people are oppressed due to this evil practice. There are many people who are unable to come forward and talk about this.

Anil Rudhan told as an example that the houses where there are two daughters. If one of them is dark and the other is fair, you will find colorism there too. Since childhood, a dark-skinned girl will be made to feel that relationships will be less for her. More dowry will have to be given. He said- Keeping this in mind, we have prepared this story.
