Me and My Sister :Me and My Sister, an Assamese film based on the issue of female foeticide, will be released in seven languages.The Rajesh Bhiyan directed film throws light on cases of exploitation of women and ill-treatment prevalent in the state of Assam.Initially, Me and My Sister was made in Assamese for the people of Assam. But the recent storm created by actor Aamir Khan’s show Satyamev Jayate on female foeticide forced producer Nepon Dhoula to release this film in seven different languages- Hindi, Marathi, Bengali, Bhojpuri, Rajasthani, and English, besides Assamese.”The film deals with the fate of girl child. Currently, under the Indira Gandhi child Welfare scheme, Government of India presents an amount of Rupees 25,000 on the birth of first girl child to the families and Rupees 20,000 on the birth of second which we feel is not enough and should be increased,” said Dhoula.
