Debutante Antara Banerjee, who essays a journalist in Lom Harsh’s directorial “Yeh Hai India”, says the attempt of the film is to portray some of the feats achieved by the country and its citizens. The idea, she says, is to show the brighter side of India.
“There are so many misconceptions about India among foreign citizens…We Indians have contributed tremendously to the world, but they ignore it. We are striving to highlight an unexplored facet about India, which hasn’t been depicted on screen before.
“There are issues that citizens have forgotten because we aren’t reminded about them. We want to portray the remarkable feats achieved by India which has inspired innovations all over the world,” Antara said in a statement.
