Gajraj Rao and Anand Tiwari team up for Father's Day
The two have collaborated on a spoken word piece called Tu Jaanta Nahi Tera Baap Kaun Hai for the youth media platform, Yuvaa
Actor Gajraj Rao, best known for his performance in films like Badhaai Ho and Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan, has partnered with writer-director Anand Tiwari (Love Per Square Foot) for a new project.
The two have collaborated on a spoken word poem called Tu Jaanta Nahi Tera Baap Kaun Hai for the youth media platform, Yuvaa. The poem is about a father struggling to express love to his son.
This is their second collaboration for Yuvaa, after the viral hit Talk to Them, which also features Kumud Mishra, Ratna Pathak Shah, Sheeba Chadda, and others and was launched on World Suicide Prevention Day.
Written by Sajal Kumar, Tu Jaanta Nahi Tera Baap Kaun Hai is about a father, who has struggled with patriarchy himself, trying to overcome his inner conditionings of masculinity to tell his son that he loves him. It's been launched on occasion of Father's Day.
Gajrao Rao shares, “I have worked with Yuvaa on a wonderful spoken word called ‘Talk to them’ in the past. The love and the accolades I received from that collaboration warmed my heart. As a father myself, I realise that it is not easy to be open and honest with your children in a society that pushes fathers to be strict and distant. I hope this video starts new conversations between fathers and sons.”
Actor-director and co-founder of Yuvaa Anand Tiwari adds, “I have always loved working with Gajraj Sir, who is one of my favourite actors in the industry since I began my own journey as a director. For this Father's Day, we could think of nobody better to bring out the range of emotions that many fathers fail to express. I hope this video is seen and loved by many fathers and many sons.”
