Mumbai, July 1 (IANS) Gul Panag, mostly seen in off-beat films, feels that the scripts of Hindi movies lack story and structure.
The former Miss India started her acting journey with critically acclaimed off-beat film “Dhoop”, based on a true story, and was appreciated for her work in films like “Dor”, “Manorama Six Feet Under”, and “Turning 30”.
The actress, not seen in Hindi movies for a while, launched Atulya Mahajan’s book “Amreeka Desi”.
When asked whether the book could provide a good plot for a movie, she said: “I don’t know because Hindi movies don’t normally have good plots.”
“I do hope there are people out there who understand that films need to have a beginning, an end and a story, which doesn’t seem to be the case, unfortunately,” added the 34-year-old.
Having said that, Gul feels content-wise “Amreeka Desi” is apt for film adaptation.
“So, if there were any takers who really want to make a film that was tight, that had an interesting structure, which was telling a compelling story, I think they would buy the rights to this book. I think it has the potential to make a good film,” Gul said.
She will soon be seen in Punjabi film “Sarsa”.
