Filmmaker Mrunalini Patil, who has produced and done the research for films like Kagaar: Life on the Edge and directed films like Manthan: Ek Amrut Pyala, Raakhandaar and Kaay Raav Tumhi is doing many things for the social welfare of society since the pandemic.

Mrunalini’s film Kagaar which featured Om Puri and Nandita Das was critically acclaimed. She said, “The film was a big hit and Amitabh Bachchan, the legendary star came for the launch of the film. Gulzar Saab had written a song for the film and I wanted him to write the song. He had also written the song for one of my TV series. I have worked as an assistant on the sets of his film Maachis. I have learnt a lot from Tigmanshu Dhulia, Imtiaz Ali and many such interesting and creative filmmakers.”
Mrunalini said, “Filmmaking is a passion. I have learnt a lot while working and contributing to the cinema. The last year has been tough and though I have not been able to start any film project, I have a few scripts in my hand. Hopefully, I will start work on it soon. The last year has been tough and it was a learning period for all.” My Hindi film Karbonn is based on pollution, global warming and corruption starring Lakshmi Gopalaswami who is a critically acclaimed star from the South and noted Bharatnatyam dancer as protagonist and other known actors is ready to release soon.
