Hyderabad, Nov 16 (UNI) Eleven-year-old director Kishan, who made 'Care of Footpath', a story on child labour, which received several awards, said his next film would be a complete commercial entertainer targeting child audience.

Talking to newspersons here yesterday, on the sidelines of the 15th Interantional Children's Film Festival, Mr Kishan said the concept of his next film would be 'what the chiildren think of adults'. It would be a purely commercial entertainer, the script work of which was in progress.

Explaining his experiences of shooting 'Care of Footpath', the child prodigy said ''I spent ten days in slum areas to study the difficulties faced by child labourers. This had helped me a lot in crafting the film perfectly.'' To a query, he said, in India, parents prefer to go for action movies along with their children. But, in Western countries, parents prefer children's films. The commercial film producers also postpone their releases, when chidlren's films come on screen.

''Parents should encourage the children's films, releasing in India,'' he added.

'Care of Footpath' producer Shailaja Srikant said the film had successfully completed 100 days in Kannada and 50 days in Tamil versions. The film would be released in Telugu and Hindi at the earliest.
