New Delhi: Debut filmmaker Anirudh Chautala says his upcoming satire `Democracy Private Limited` is an attempt to show middle class` mindset towards the political system.



"We are a developing nation and becoming a developed nation. Everything in our country is changing be it education or telecommunication but no one is making any effort to change the political system. We middle class people are the biggest sufferer," Anirudh said.

Anirudh, 32, who is the son of former Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala, says in the film he has tried to emphasize the importance of education in politics. The film stars Deepak Dobrial of `Tanu Weds Manu` fame and `FIR` actress Kavita Kaushik.

"I have highlighted the importance of education in my film. I want youth to have interest in politics and become the change that society needs," Anirudh said.

Having born to a politically active family, Anirudh says it was not a tough call for him to have a career in filmmaking.

"I have always been a creative person. In politics, I do election campaigns but I don`t intend to take the legacy forward of Chautala family by becoming a MP or MLA. Filmmaking is a medium for me to bring the problems in the limelight," he said.
Anirudh says he did not cast any superstar in the film because he did not want the focus to shift from the topic.

The director is currently shooting a song `Lal Batti` with rappers Honey Singh and Hard Kaur. The Hindi-Haryanvi song has been written by Anirudh and talks about the culture of flaunting the VIP cars.

"It`s the first time that Hard Kaur and Honey Singh will rap together. The main idea behind introducing the song is to show how people in India flaunt their VIP cars," he said.
