While the lockdown may be causing anxiety in many, filmmaker Raajeev Walia sees it as the “most positive, creative and crucial time” to give one’s life a makeover.

Walia, who has directed films like The 13th Day and Tera Intezaar, is all excited about the release of his latest film, the romantic saga Dhadke Dil Baar Baar, this September. “This work has included many talents from Australia including actors and singers,” says Wali. “So it’s definitely a must watch.”

Walia started as an assistant director and worked on projects such as Taqatwaar, Hadh Kardi Aapne, Pardesi Babu, and Zamanaat. He has also worked with Bollywood A-listers such as actor Amitabh Bachchan, directors David Dhawan, Mukul S Anand, Bharat Rungachary, and S Ramanathan, and production houses Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, T-Series, and Zee Music.

Walia has directed many ad films, music videos, documentaries, feature films, social films etc. “Making a social film is more difficult than commercial projects but it gives one a sense of creative fulfillment,” says the filmmaker, who worked on Mission Indradhanush, which was the brainchild of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

His project ‘Betiyaan: Save the Girl Child’ was been endorsed by people like Sushmita Sen, Rakesh Om Prakash Mehra, Sonu Nigam, and Ajay Devgn. And now he has created a new version of it—‘Betiyaan: Pride of Nation’—featuring sports legends Mary Kom, Saina Nehwal, and Uravshi Rautela. “Another project close to my heart is ‘Alag Mera Yeh Rang Hai’, sung by Amruta Fadnavis, wife of Maharashtra Former CM Mr Devendra Fadnavis, which centres around acid attack survivors,” says Walia.

But for now, it’s all about romance this September.
