There are very few women producers in the Gujarati film industry, one of whom is Smita Barot. “I am not in the industry for a hobby but I want to make films with diverse themes that entertain the audience with a social message. And that’s why I set up our production house, Rajsmit Films and Entertainment. We are working on a Gujarati film project under the banner which will be based on women empowerment. I will not give more information about the story. But the special thing about the film is that in the entire unit of the film, from all the technicians, the producer will be women. There will not be Spotboy but you will be surprised to see Spotgirl on the set. Only three male actors will be seen in the film as the story needs. We are planning to go on the floor in June-July. I am also co-producing two short one of which is ‘One Click Please’ which is dedicated to all photographers,” concludes Smita.
