Hyderabad: Bollywood director Rajkumar Hirani, who is here to watch his son Vir`s directorial debut film `Return Gift`, expressed his desire to direct films for children someday.

`Return Gift`, a four-minute film made by the teenaged son of the `3 Idiots` director, is based on a true story of his grandmother. It was well received by school kids, their teachers and parents who watched the film during the ongoing 18th International Children`s Film Festival, India, here.

"I had never thought about making films on children. But after seeing so many kids and their involvement in movies, I feel I should make one. I would love to make a children`s film," Hirani said after the screening of films made by young directors aged between 6 and 16.

He was proud of his son.

"As a father, I feel good. He (Vir) is shy, he didn`t even want me to be here," said Hirani, who believes technology has eased the process of filmmaking.

"If you have a camera on your phone, and a great idea, then shoot it. There are editing softwares too. This wasn`t the case when I wanted to get into filmmaking," he said.
