Every Content Can Reach Potential Audience If Placed Right: Soni Razdan

Veteran actress Soni Razdan, who recently travelled with her film "Yours Truly" to the Busan International Film Festival earlier this month and received positive response from the audience, says though the film is unusual, every content can find its audience if placed at the right platform.

"I think every content can reach its potential audience if placed rightfully. For instance, my character in the film is a middle-aged lonely woman who did not get married because she wasn't allowed to marry the man she was in love. This is the reality of the patriarchal society where women are allowed to vote, earn money to live their life but have to get an approval from the family, especially father to get married to the man of her choice. Such themes are relatable beyond the boundary," Soni told IANS in an interview.
