“I think it’s time we stopped looking at languages as a barrier,” Hegde added, citing Oscar winner Bong Joon-ho. “It’s like the director of ‘Parasite’ said at the Oscars that if we got over that one-inch barrier of a subtitle, we’d be privy to such fantastic content throughout the world, and across India.”

“India is such a culturally diverse and rich country,” she said, “and I believe film is a method to help us understand other people in a much more deep and personal way.” We’ve got it in us; all we have to do now is keep telling our tales the way we want them to be told.”
