The Story Behind Dil Ki Dor
What inspired you to make this movie?
My Dad, Mr. Vinayak Patil, was a loving and full-of-life person. He used to take care of everyone around him. I call him “a Hero in a common man.” When he passed away due to heart failure, I was shocked like the rest of my family. But, if there is one thing I learned from him, it was to make something better out of the bad patches in life. Hence, as a tribute to him, I decided to make a short movie that raises awareness about cardiovascular diseases. If this movie can help save even one life, its purpose will be served.
Why did you make it in English and Hindi?
Given the goal of the movie, I wanted it to reach the maximum number of people. Hindi is close to my heart. So that was a given. I made it in English as well so that it connects with the audience better and can reach people across the globe. I preferred that over subtitles as I believe this way the message will come across more clearly. And, yes, we shot two movies instead of creating a dubbed version, again, to make a stronger connection with the audience.
What message would you like to give to your viewers?
This line says it all:
When you have a big heart, you must take care of it too.
