Rajkumar Hirani is often considered the best director in Bollywood. For good reason too. So, when he speaks about the impact a film had on him, it does get interesting. 

Hirani recently watched the Frieda Pinto-starrer Love Sonia, an independent film, during the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne. The director could not stop gushing. 

“The most disturbing film I have ever seen in life and I am saying it in a good way,” the Sanju director said about the film. “It requires tremendous courage and empathy to do this. Big salute to the entire team of Love Sonia.” 

The film, in fact, went on to win awards in the Best Indie Film and Best Supporting Performance Award, the latter given to Richa Chadha.

The film’s lead is well-known TV actress Mrunal Thakur, while the cast boasts of names like Manoj Bajpayee, Rajkummar Rao, and Demi Moore. 

The film has been directed by Tabrez Noorani.
