New Delhi: Filmmaker Kirit Khurrana is all set to come up with a new documentary titled ‘The Invisible Visible’. He recently announced this news and fans are going gaga over it.
Shot in Mumbai, Delhi, Patna, Dehradun, Kanpur and some villages in Maharashtra and Bihar, ‘The Invisible Visible’ highlights the plight of millions of destitute people in India. Speaking about the same, Kirit said, “India has the largest number of homeless people. There are over 70 million destitute citizens who have been denied the constitutional right to shelter. The draconian Bombay Beggary Prevention Act 1959 has given them Made more criminals and made them vulnerable. To imprison, torture and dehumanization. The film shows how the marginalized and underprivileged have been left out in the cold and, in some cases, in shelters under state surveillance. There has been exploitation, as happened during the infamous Muzaffarpur case, where hundreds of girls aged between 6 and 15 years were raped, tortured and killed.”
Kirit also hopes that the film will act as a catalyst for states to set up shelters for the homeless in each district and have independent and credible agencies to audit them regularly.
The 81-minute long documentary will release in mid-22nd.
