    I have enjoyed watching Deepti Naval and Farooq Sheikh’s films. Her Film Chashme Buddoor is a real fun to watch and I must have watched at least 15-20 times.

    I wish her best of luck for her directorial debut film Do Paise Ki Dhoop, Chaar Aane Ki Baarish.

    I guess the film will be different and interesting as the title of the film.

    Wishing her all the best for this film as well as all the future projects.
