Bangalore, Nov 21: Students of Acharya Institute of Graduate Studies, who were full of questions and doubts, welcomed multilingual actress-film-maker Revathy during an interaction programme organised by the students themselves.

Many, who are inspired by her, and many more who want to become like her, were excited to listen to her and learn from the actress.

They had a host of questions and the senior actress patiently addressed them all.

Revathy is known for her choice of films and the inquisitive students wanted to know what's her kind of cinema.

Revathy said, "I like to tackle issues. I won't say only social issues, but even stories of love, emotions and culture impress me. My only concern is that people should take home something after they watch my films. I don't want people to forget the characters in my films."

So does she feel the need to incorporate more women-related issues in Indian films? She said, "It depends. There are many issues that are already being tackled and there are, however, many other issues that still need to be talked about.

I was working with an organisation that tackled HIV and AIDS related issues and it was through them that I was inspired to make Phir Milenge. Similarly Mitr, My Friend was an inspiration from many Indians who live abroad. I don't think you can decide on an issue and affirm to make a film, it just happens. You see and you learn."

Mitr, My Friend dealt with a subtle subject and it was a crossover movie. When asked why she made her directorial venture with an English movie, she said, "At that time, I was more comfortable writing in English than any other language. Moreover, I had many friends abroad and if I had chosen to make a movie in Hindi, Malayalam or Kannada, it would be restricted to that specific region. I wanted the film to be Indian, rather than a regional movie."

The questions then stretched towards the current trend in the film industry. When questioned what's her take about the recent item numbers which are rampant these days, she said, "I don't want to judge anyone. All I can say is these people are beautiful women who can dance very well and they flaunt their skills. I have no objection to anybody doing anything. There are audiences who love to see these item numbers and go to theatres only for this. If I had a body like that, I would dance too!"

The students were left in splits at this response. Sahara Sharma, a student, said, "I am an aspiring film-maker and Revathy was truly an inspiration. She knows her craft very well and she believes in what she does. We were lucky that we got to spend time with her."
