Film on 'triple talaq' premieres at Berlin festival

A movie based on 'triple talaq' and its impact had its world premiere at the ongoing Berlin Film Festival.

Aleena Khan says her film 'Code Blue' attempts to bring to light the three words that "damage the lives of millions of women in three seconds".

Made in association with Rahat Kazmi Films, the film features Alok Nath, Rishi Bhutani, Sushmita Mukerji and Aleena in lead roles.

Aleena wants to use the medium of movies to bring to light the lives of women who find their lives shattered with this instant divorce practice.

She says she felt traumatised when she encountered cases of women having to endure the mistreatment and misuse of the oral 'talaq' system.

"I want every woman to rise and find her true self. 'Code Blue' should inspire millions," she says.
