"Makdee" girl Shweta Basu, who has worked in Telugu films such as "Kotha Bangaru Lokam" and "Genius", has helmed a documentary titled "Roots", which focuses on the declining visibility of Hindustani classical music in India.
"I spent the last three years working on this documentary. That's why I couldn't take out time to sign new films. Since I come from a background of music and arts, I wanted to make this documentary on Hindustani classical music and why it's losing its prominence," Shweta told IANS.
"I'm a trained Sitar player and have great respect for our traditional music, both Carnatic and Hindustani. But most youngsters nowadays have an aversion towards this music tradition. Through this documentary, I hope to bring about a change in them," she added.
The documentary, which will be released soon, will also feature bytes of renowned Indian musicians.
Shweta has also worked in Hindi films such as "Iqbal" and "Darna Zaroori Hai".
