I wanted to be a filmmaker, says Priyanka Chopra!

International diva Priyanka Chopra, who showcased her first northeastern film production "Pahuna: The Little Visitors" at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), is overwhelmed by the response she has got for the film and tells this was the reason she wanted to be a filmmaker.
 
"Pahuna: The Little Visitors" narrates the tale of three Nepalese children separated from their parents and their journey back home.
 
Priyanka on Friday posted a video on Instagram, where she and the film's director Paakhi A. Tyrewala, are seen on a podium along with festival artistic director Cameron Bailey.
 
Captioning the short-video, Priyanka wrote, "Never be ok with hearing the word no...because there will always be someone who will say "yes." I'm very proud of my first time 'female' director Paakhi A. Tyrewala for having the courage to not give up, when people didn't believe this film could be made."
 
She further added, "Bravo for wanting to tell a beautiful story that may not be what people consider mainstream... but today had a world premiere on an international platform at TIFF, with an applause that resonated for a very long time."
 
The actress, 35, told that this was the first time an audience watched the film outside of their offices at Purple Pebble Pictures. And told us how proud they were that a story like this was told.
 
The "Mary Kom" star also thanked her mother Madhu Chopra, with whom she shares her production banner Purple Pebble Pictures.
 
She further added, "Thank you Cameron Bailey for the opportunity to share this small film and a big message with a world audience...one about children's rights, the refugee crisis, religious conversion and the affect of adult decisions on kids from the perspective of our protagonists, who are to young kids from a small village in Sikkim. My heart swells at the thought of people standing up and applauding our effort. This is the reason I wanted to be a filmmaker. Major feels."
 
The first look of the movie was released at the Cannes Film Festival this year.
