Filmmaker Farah Khan, whose films are marked by dollops of dance, songs and melodrama, says she may make an experimental film like Kalki Koechlin-starrer 'Margarita With A Straw' if she finds a 'good script'. However, she asserts she won't make it under any sort of "critics' pressure"

"If I love a script, I will surely make it," the "Happy New Year" director said here at a screening of "Margarita With A Straw".

"If I will get a script like this ('Margarita With A Straw') or I would feel that I can go for this script, then I would definitely make it. But I won't go ahead with it just because critics want me to make such films. I won't take that pressure on me," she added.

"Margarita With A Straw", directed by Shonali Bose, narrates the struggle of a cerebral palsy affected girl (played by Kalki Koechlin) with the normal activities in her life.

Not only the film, but Kalki also has garnered a lot of appreciation in the international circuit for her performance.
